Earlier this week, investor Nic Carter published a piece called “Nine Bitcoin Charts Already at All-Time Highs” showing just how far bitcoin had come and how fundamentally bullish this quiet run-up was.

  • Addresses with a balance of $10 or more
  • Open interest on CME bitcoin futures
  • Realized capitalization

  • Bitcoin priced in Turkish lira
  • Bitcoin held by Grayscale
  • Stablecoin free float
