Bitcoin Buyers From 2019 Back in Profit as BTC Chases $24K
Bitcoin prices have held onto recent gains this weekend, lifting to a new high for the year during the Monday morning Asian trading session.
The move has placed another cohort of BTC buyers into the profit zone. According to Glassnode, those that bought Bitcoin in 2019 are back in the green again. The average withdrawal price for that year was $21,800, according to data from the analytics company.
Those who bought in 2020 and 2022 are still in the red on average, with prices needing to move above $28K for the group to see a profit on holdings. Buyers from 2021 are deep in the red on average and won’t see a profit until BTC prices approach $38K.

Bitcoin Approaches Key Technical Area
Glassnode also reported that the average exchange withdrawal price was much higher for Coinbase and Binance than the overall average.
The outflow realized price for those two was $21,000, whereas the overall average exchange withdrawal price is $16,700.
Furthermore, BTC is approaching a key technical price level at the 200-week moving average. This currently sits at $24,713, according to Woo Charts, just above current levels.
The 200wma has been a key long-term support zone during bear cycles. BTC prices dipped below it during this cycle and have yet to reclaim this crucial technical area.
Bitcoin has reclaimed its realized price level, however, which is currently at $19,777. Realized price is the value of all BTC in circulation at the price the coins last moved. It can also be viewed as an estimation of what all market participants paid for their BTC.
Market sentiment remains positive, with Bitcoin holding onto gains and making a new high for 2023.
