Since crypto prices have fallen to their lowest point, now is the ideal time to “Buy-the-Dip.” But during these brief price declines, traders appear to be shorting cryptocurrency more than they are buying it. “Buy-the-Dip” Sentiments Does Not Stop Crypto Shorting More short sales or shorting occur in altcoins than in bitcoin. In the past day, short holdings in Bitcoin (BTC) have averaged roughly 51% across exchanges, while short positions in altcoins have averaged about 55%. BTC/USD hovers around $20k. Source: TradingView Santiment, an on-chain analytics tool, states that data on the average funding rate for Bitcoin and altcoins relative to the price of bitcoin shows that traders continue to short altcoins at every minor decline. The long/short ratio for Bitcoin, in contrast, is unchanged despite price swings. “As prices gradually fell on Sunday, traders have shown that though they may proclaim to be buyingthedip, they are shorting more on these mini drops. Interestingly, this only applies to altcoins right now, indicating that Bitcoin is being flocked to as the safe haven.” According to Coinglass data, traders kept shorting crypto on Monday. In the last 24 hours, a $25 million liquidation of Ethereum (ETH) witnessed 56 percent shorts. Polkadot (DOT), Solana (SOL), XRP, Cardano (ADA), and BNB, meanwhile, saw 55 percent, 59 percent, 63 percent, 67 percent, and 53 percent shorts.

Source: Santiment It’s interesting to note that in the past 24 hours, short positions in Tether (USDT) have increased by 85% across exchanges.

Since the previous month, USDT has experienced significant redemptions, causing its market cap to drop close to $66 billion. Amidst a dim market outlook, hedge funds are also progressively shorting the U.S. dollar-pegged stablecoin Tether (USDT). Liquidation OF Altcoins Rises Amid Short Selling Liquidations are also increasing as traders continue to short altcoins. Altcoins that were actively traded in the morning are currently in the negative. Due to a recent increase in liquidation, the price of Ethereum (ETH) has decreased by around 4% during the past 24 hours. Other altcoins have also given up gains and are currently declining.

Past trend of the Bitcoin long-term holder SOPR (EMA 30) may suggest that BTC holders may face more pain in the coming months. Bitcoin Long-Term Holder SOPR Has Dropped Below “One” Recently As explained by an analyst in a CryptoQuant post, BTC investors may be in for a frustrating few months if history is anything to go by. The “spent output profit ratio” (or SOPR in short) is an indicator that tells us whether Bitcoin investors are selling at a profit or at a loss right now. The metric works by going through the transaction history of each coin being sold on the chain, to see what price it was last moved at. If the previous selling price of any coin was less than the current value of BTC, then the coin has just been sold for a profit. On the other hand, the past value being more than the latest price of the crypto would imply the coin has moved at a loss. When the value of the SOPR is greater than one, it means the overall Bitcoin market is selling at a profit right now. Related Reading | Bitcoin Coinbase Premium Gap Approaches Zero, Selloff Ending? On the other hand, values of the indicator less than one imply investors as a whole are realizing some loss at the moment. Now, the “long-term holder” (LTH) group includes any Bitcoin investor who has been holding their coins since at least 155 days ago without moving or selling. The below chart shows the trend in the SOPR over the history of the crypto specifically for these LTHs. Looks like the 30-day exponential-MA value of the indicator has gone down recently | Source: CryptoQuant In the above graph, the quant has highlighted all the regions of relevant trend for the Bitcoin long-term holder SOPR. It seems like during past bottoms, the indicator’s EMA-30 value has gone below one and trended sideways there for a while (except for the COVID-19 crash, where the metric didn’t stay in the zone for too long).

Recently, the LTH SOPR’s value has once again gone below one, suggesting long-term holders are realizing losses right now. The analyst notes that while such capitulation events have historically lead to bottom formations, it may still be a while, even months, before a low is actually found. BTC Price At the time of writing, Bitcoin’s price floats around $21.4k, up 11% in the past week.
