Crypto on-chain analysis is a method of analyzing data from a blockchain network to gain insights into the behavior and activities of participants on the network.
The blockchain is a public ledger of all transactions on a particular cryptocurrency network, and on-chain analysis involves examining this ledger to track the flow of funds, identify patterns and trends, and gain a deeper understanding of how the network is being used.
This type of analysis can be used to identify key players in a particular market or to track the movement of large sums of cryptocurrency.
Many companies and organizations in the cryptocurrency industry use on-chain analysis to inform their decision-making, and the practice has become an important tool for investors, regulators, and law enforcement agencies in the cryptocurrency ecosystem.
If you would like to learn more about on-chain analysis of cryptocurrencies, major crypto price data provider CoinGecko published a handy video guide on the subject.
The findings follow a recent report suggesting that bitcoin keeps leaving cryptocurrency exchanges as on-chain data keeps showing signs of accumulation by long-term investors.
