“Realized Cap HODL waves show what percentage of realized capitalization belongs to HODLers of different type (1y-3y hodlers, 3y-5y and so on). Usually, macro tops occur when the market over-saturates with FOMO. This can be identified when a large % of realized capitalization belongs to short term hodlers (younger than 6 months). The last macro tops were accompanied by more than 95% of realized cap belonging hodlers of less than 6 months. Currently, we are at 82%.”
