Bitcoin demand among retail and institutional investors climbs
Bitcoin addresses holding 0.1 BTC or less grew slowly in 2022, but 2023 shows the return of trader optimism. The BTC network added 620,000 small Bitcoin addresses since the FOMO returned on January 13 when the price hit the $20,000 level.

Interestingly, retail investors' enthusiasm is shared by institutional investors over the past week. $117 million headed into crypto investment products in a single week, with a large chunk of capital going straight into Bitcoin.
According to a CoinShares report, Bitcoin took home the lion’s share of investment with $115.6 million flowing into BTC. The return of institutional investors’ enthusiasm is matched with on-chain metrics that flipped bullish recently.
Bitcoin on-chain metrics signal further bullish potential in BTC
On-chain metric Bitcoin Realised HODL (RHODL) Multiple noted an upswing and has been in a sustained uptrend throughout the past 90 days. This indicator identifies whether Bitcoin holders selling during a fixed period of time are selling at a profit or loss.
RHODL Multiple has flipped bullish with sellers during the past three months selling at a consistent profit. This demonstrates there is an uptick in demand by new investors in BTC.

Bitcoin Supply in Profit is a metric that tracks the “paper profit” or unrealized profit of BTC that last moved when USD-denominated prices were lower than they are right now. This on-chain indicator shows that BTC supply in profit has climbed over the last 30 days.
The Supply in Profit indicator has increased by over 20 percent since the beginning of 2023. This implies that larger and longer-term investors currently hold profitable on-paper spot positions.

This is healthy for the latter half of a bear market as a sustained 30-day uptrend after a prolonged downtrend on this indicator has historically provided a good buy signal for the following two years.
Based on on-chain indicators and rising demand among both institutions and retail investors, it is a good time to buy Bitcoin at the end of the bear market.
