The latest uptick in active entities was mainly driven by a spike in the price which started on July 21st.
Bitcoin reached a local high of approximately $42,500 last after a surge in demand from investors. Currently, BTC is trading below $40,000 with a market cap of nearly $756 billion.
“Bitcoin has seen a resurgence in Active Entities over the past week, rising by 30% from 250k to 325k active entities per day. This degree of activity was sustained in July 2020 when BTC prices were around $11.3k in Q2-2020,” Glassnode tweeted.

Santiment, another crypto analytics firm also noted that BTC whale addresses added nearly 170,000 coins in the last 4 weeks.
“As of the time of this writing, Bitcoin addresses currently holding between 100 and 10,000 BTC now collectively hold 9.23m coins in their wallets, which is a new all-time high for this group.The previous all-time high had occurred on April 5th, just one week shy of Bitcoin’s price all-time high of $63.5k. In the last four weeks, these addresses have accumulated approximately 170,000 more BTC. This staggering pace was last matched in late December 2020, right before a massive bull run kicked off 2021 where prices jumped from $29.0k to $40.8k in the year’s opening week,” Santiment mentioned in its latest Bitcoin research report.
