Bitcoin miners have been storing their coins at higher prices, and direct transfers from miners to exchanges have dropped nearly 40 percent since mid-March.

Data from on-chain analytics provider Glassnode shows that miners’ BTC balances have been on the rise since late March, following strong outflows in January and successive declines in turnover in February and early March.

Glassnode CTO Rafael Schulze-Kraft points to several indicators that point to a recent buildup of miners, including leaving miner addresses, unused BTC inventory, and a net change in miner positions.

Glassnode’s data shows that unused inventory – BTC that was never transferred from its original receiving (miner) address – has begun to rise after a sharp drop in January, when 15,000 previously inactive coins were moved from mining addresses for the first time.

Miners are hoarding Bitcoin from record daily earnings

Since February, about 5,000 newly minted BTC have been added to the unused bitcoin shipments, bringing the total to 1.765 million.

Direct transfers from miners’ portfolios to exchanges have also dropped significantly in recent weeks, from a 30-day moving average of nearly 450 BTC in mid-March to 275 BTC today.

Miners are hoarding Bitcoin from record daily earnings

Schultze-Kraft called bitcoin mining great fundamentals and cited a new daily hash record of 178 per second at 6. April, as well as a new complexity record in bitcoin mining.

He also shared data showing that mining company profits have risen 300% in one year, reached a new all-time high of more than $50 million and now stand at a seven-day moving average of nearly $60 million.

The miners have little or no interest in retiring at this time, he concluded, adding that a sale or transfer [is not in the cards].

The apparent prosperity of Bitcoin mining companies can be seen in the stock performance of publicly traded North American mining companies. A recent analysis showed that the bitcoin shares of the four largest listed mining companies rose 5000% in 12 months, while the spot price of BTC rose 900% in the same period.
