“For Bitcoin, at least $3.2 billion was lost last week. This is only for Bitcoin that has been withheld for at least four weeks before being shipped, a restriction that increases the certainty that these are real losses. Almost all of that $3.2 billion loss was incurred by Bitcoin held between 4 and 13 weeks, suggesting that recent investors were the biggest sellers.”
