Bitcoin URPD Chart Shows Potential Correction – Analyst

IN post X from June 15Martinez stated that Bitcoin’s price must quickly rise above $66,254 or it risks a potential decline to around $61,100. Martinez based his theory on a UTXO Realized Price Distribution (URPD) chart generated by data analytics platform Glassnode.

In context, unspent transaction output (UTXO) refers to units of Bitcoin that have not been spent after a transaction. Each UTXO has an realized price, i.e. the market price at the time the UTXO transaction was entered into. In the UTXO realized price distribution chart, the Bitcoin supply is broken down based on UXTO realized prices showing how much BTC was purchased at different levels.

This data can be used to study market sentiment, analyze distributions, as well as support and resistance levels. More importantly, investor behavior can also be studied, as high UTXO concentration indicates the levels at which most investors have purchased Bitcoin, which can translate into a potential resistance or support level.
