Details

  • This metric shows the ratio between the assets leaving miner addresses relative to how much miners have received as revenue.

  • The FlowMinerOut1HopAllNtv is part of our Miner Flows family of metrics, which takes into account the custody structures within mining pools and their constituents who are individually mining.

Chart

Interpretation

  • When comparing the USD value of what miners are sending relative to the funds they are receiving, there appears to be a negative relationship with price.

  • That makes intuitive sense as it might indicate that miners are sending more funds out (which might show higher willingness to sell) relative to what they are receiving as revenue.

  • As such, this ratio might serve as a barometer for miner sentiment and identify liquidity events when miners might be bearish.

  • It is important to note that the mere act of sending funds from one address to another does not necessary signify the act of selling.

  • Only when there is a clear & noticeable uptick in this metric that the speculation that miners are selling is defensible, given that outflows might signify more mundane events such as a cold wallet shuffle.

  • Miner outflows are naturally very volatile. As such, we recommend using a monthly (30d) Moving Average when visualizing this metric.
