On-chain indicators assessing the value of Bitcoin have entered a “high-risk” zone and could mean the cryptocurrency is in the initial stages of a bull market, says the crypto analysis platform Glassnode.

In a Feb. 10 X post, Glassnode shared that an indicator to identify Bitcoin’s long-term valuation relative to its market value had pushed above the “mid-risk” zone and is firmly in the “high-risk” band.

The high-risk level is typically witnessed during the early stages of a BitcoinBTC) bull market, and it shows long-term investors have returned to a “meaningful level” of profitability, Glassnode highlighted in an earlier Feb. 8 report.

The long-term holder market value to realized value (MVRV) indicator aims to identify when Bitcoin is over or undervalued relative to its “fair value.”

It contrasts the “market value” of Bitcoin with its “realized value” — the price when Bitcoin was transferred between long-term holder wallets — and it “strips out” short-term market sentiment and provides a metric that shows if the market is overheated.

Glassnode assigned a high or very high-risk rating to seven indicators out of 10, including MVRV, supply profitability state and net unrealized profit/loss, suggesting that there were very low levels of realized profit locked in by investors despite significant increases in crypto asset prices.

Glassnode noted that demand for Bitcoin blockspace and short-term profit-taking by new investors were firmly in the “low risk” categories, adding that the sell-off after spot Bitcoin exchange-traded fund (ETF) approvals in the United States had reduced risk throughout the broader market. 

The price of Bitcoin has steadily increased over the past week, climbing from $42,317 on Feb. 4 to $48,582 at the time of publication, according to CoinGecko.

Bitcoin’s strength over the last week has been attributed to dwindling outflows from the Grayscale Bitcoin Trust (GBTC) — the asset manager’s newly converted ETF — combined with $9.1 billion worth of inflows into nine of the spot Bitcoin ETFs since they went live on Jan. 11.

The new U.S. spot Bitcoin ETFs generated net inflows of $541 million on Feb. 9, marking the largest day of inflows for the products, excluding the first day of trading, according to data from the crypto analytics platform SoSoValue.

Meanwhile, Grayscale’s GBTC notched its lowest day of outflows, with just $51.8 million exiting the fund on Feb. 9, marking a 91% decrease from its record daily outflow of $620 million on Jan. 23.
