Bitcoin In ‘Euphoria Wave’ – How Long Until The Bull Run Ends?

Must read


The price of Bitcoin appears to have returned to a choppy market condition, quashing any hopes of a breakout to new highs soon. However, the good news is that the current bull cycle may still not be over, even though it is taking a while for the premier cryptocurrency to resume its upward momentum.

Specifically, the latest on-chain observation shows that Bitcoin has been going through a “euphoria wave” over the past few months. Here’s the implication of this phase on the current bull run.

How Old Is The Current Bitcoin ‘Euphoria Wave’?

Blockchain intelligence firm Glassnode revealed via a post on the X platform that Bitcoin has entered the euphoria phase of the market cycle. This on-chain observation is based on the “Percent Supply in Profit” metric, which measures the percentage of the total circulating Bitcoin supply that is currently in profit.

According to Glassnode, the “Euphoria Wave” is identified as a period during which the supply in profit usually fluctuates around the 90% level. This phase typically lasts between 6 to 12 months and is characterized by increased investor sentiment and heightened market speculation.

Glassnode’s data shows that 93.4% of the circulating Bitcoin supply is currently in the green and that the Euphoria Wave is “relatively young”. The on-chain analytics platform noted that the euphoria phase has only been active for about two and a half months.

As with every phase in the market cycle, the Euphoria Wave will eventually come to an end at some point. Historically, the euphoria phase can signal tops and is usually followed by a cooling-off period, which is marked by a downturn in the price of Bitcoin. 

If the last cycle – with a 6-month Euphoria Wave – is anything to go by, then there might still be about three to four months in the current bull run. Ultimately, the current profitability of the premier cryptocurrency may prove pivotal in the duration of its bull cycle and overall future trajectory.

Rise Of BTC Accumulation Addresses Continued In May: Analyst

One of the tell-tale signs of the bullish sentiment around Bitcoin is the continuous rise in accumulation addresses. According to an on-chain analyst on CryptoQuant’s platform, there has been a notable increase in the number of new BTC accumulation addresses.

The analyst pointed out the continuity of this positive trend despite BTC’s relatively slow price action in May. Meanwhile, the large Bitcoin holders have also continued to load their bags, with significant purchases recorded over the past month.

As of this writing, Bitcoin is valued at $67,744, reflecting a mere 0.4% increase in the last 24 hours. According to data from CoinGecko, the pioneer cryptocurrency is up by about 15% in the past month.

Opeyemi is a proficient writer and enthusiast in the exciting and unique cryptocurrency realm. While the digital asset industry was not his first choice, he has remained absolutely drawn since making a foray into the space over two years. Now, Opeyemi takes pride in creating unique pieces unraveling the complexities of blockchain technology and sharing insights on the latest trends in the world of cryptocurrencies. Opeyemi savors his attraction to the crypto market, which explains why he spends the better parts of his day looking through different price charts. “Looking” is a rather simple way to describe analyzing and interpreting various price patterns and chart formations. However, it appears that is not Opeyemi’s favorite part – in fact, far from it. Being able to connect what happens on a price chart to on-chain movements and blockchain activities is what keeps Opeyemi ticking. “This emphasizes the intricacies of blockchain technology and the cryptocurrency market,” he would say. Most importantly, Opeyemi thinks of any market insights as the gospel, while recognizing that he is only a messenger. When he is not clicking away at his keyboard, Opeyemi is most definitely listening to music, playing games, reading a book, or scrolling through X. He likes to think he is not loyal to a particular genre of music, which can be true on many days. However, the fast-rising Afrobeats genre is a staple in Opeyemi’s Spotify Daily Mix. Meanwhile, Opeyemi is a voracious reader who enjoys a wide category of books – ranging from science fiction, fantasy, and historical, to even romance. He believes that authors like George R. R. Martin and J. K. Rowling are the greatest of all time when it comes to putting pen to paper. Opeyemi believes his reading of the Harry Potter series twice is proof of that. Indeed, Opeyemi enjoys spending most of his time within the four walls of his home. However, he also sometimes finds solace in the company of his friends at a bar, a restaurant, or even on a stroll. In essence, Opeyemi’s ambivert (haha! been searching for an opportunity to use the word to describe myself) nature makes him a social chameleon who is able to quickly adapt to different settings. Opeyemi recognizes the need to constantly develop oneself in order to stay afloat in a competitive and ever-evolving market like crypto. For this reason, he is always in learning mode, ready to pick up the slightest lesson from every situation. Opeyemi is efficient and likes to deliver all that is required of him in time – he believes that “whatever is worth doing at all is worth doing well.” Hence, you will always find him striving to be better. Ultimately, Opeyemi is a good writer and an even better person who is trying to shed light on an exciting world phenomenon – cryptocurrency. He goes to bed every day with a smile of satisfaction on his face, knowing that he has done his bit of the holy assignment – spreading the crypto gospel to the rest of the world.
