More than a third of Bitcoin holders would be reluctant to sell even a small portion of it, even if prices reached a million dollars. Moreover, on-chain analysis confirms that more of the Bitcoin supply is becoming dormant as hodlers refuse to sell.
On December 6, MicroStrategy CEO Michael Saylor polled his 3 million X followers, asking how high BTC would need to rise before they considered selling a small portion of their holdings.
Bitcoin Hodl Narrative Strengthens
Remarkably, the lighthearted poll had garnered more than 87,000 responses in less than a day.
This is not a small number of BTC holders, so the 36.6% of them that answered 1 million dollars or never is also remarkable.
If more than a third of Bitcoin holders never plan to sell, that would put extreme pressure on the supply and demand, potentially further inflating prices.
However, 30% of the respondents said they would sell some if BTC prices reached $100,000. Around 19% were waiting for $250,000, and 14% would sell a portion at $500,000 per BTC.
Bitcoin author Preston Pysh said, “If only we could market weight those responses based on the amount of coins each vote holds.”
Others said they would cash out only when they needed fiat for their spending and bills.
Earlier this year, BeInCrypto reported that the Bitcoin dormant supply was increasing as hodlers refused to sell.
Nevertheless, there is always some profit-taking during bull markets and panic selling during bear markets. The largest influencers on markets will be the whales, corporate holders, and soon-to-be ETF issuers.
However, this week, CryptoQuant reported that there was a transaction involving 1,000 BTC that had been dormant for over ten years.
BTC Price Outlook
