Grayscale Fund Portfolio Dynamics
- Stock to flow
This model views bitcoin as a commodity comparable to commodities such as gold, silver, or platinum. These commodities are known as "stored value commodities" because they retain their value over time due to their relative scarcity.
For commodities of value, such as gold, platinum, or silver, a high ratio indicates that they are not primarily consumed for industrial purposes. Instead, much of it is held as a cash hedge, resulting in a higher stock-to-flow ratio.
A higher ratio indicates that the commodity is becoming increasingly scarce and therefore more valuable as a store of value.
How can I look at the chart?
In the above chart, the price is overlaid on top of the stock-to-flow ratio line. We can see that the price continues to follow bitcoin's stock-to-flow ratio over time. Thus, the theory suggests that we can predict where the price might go by observing the projected stock-to-flow ratio line, which can be calculated as we know the approximate timeline for bitcoin production in the future.
The colored dots on the price line of this chart show the number of days until the next bitcoin halving event (sometimes called "halving"). This is an event in which the reward for mining new blocks is halved, meaning miners get 50% less bitcoins for checking transactions.
- BTC Exchanges Reserves
Bitcoin reserves on exchanges continue to decline. The recent correction was a confirmation of this phenomenon. The market is now in uncertainty and fear, and many coins have declined to interesting buying levels.
Positive funding rates imply that speculators are bullish and long-traders pay funds to short-traders. Negative funding rates imply that speculators are bearish and short traders pay funds to long traders.
P.S. Funding rates (0.01%) are black, this is a neutral situation. Funding rates (below 0.01%) - green, this is a bullish situation. Funding rates (above 0.01%) are red, it is a bearish situation. The stronger the bearish or bullish sentiment, the darker the color.
