Bitcoin dipped below $9,000 for the first time in June early Monday morning, though it quickly rebounded for a relatively calm week. Unfazed by its stagnant price movements, some high-profile investors like Chris Burniske still see bitcoin breaching $50,000 during its next bull run, anticipating that it will account for a significant portion of gold’s market share.

A Chainalysis report found that 85% of the bitcoin currently held on exchanges is in the hands of professional traders who rarely make transfers. In fact, 96% of all transactions are made by retail investors who control a much smaller slice of the overall pie. The last time the level of long-term “HODLing” rose this high was just prior to its meteoric 2017 rise.
