Bitcoin’s (BTC) year-long decline has left several holders with unrealized losses, including long-term holders (LTH) who have held the coin for at least six months.

This was because LUNA’s crash in May triggered a significant dip in price that allowed traders to accumulate the asset. Those that bought Bitcoin at the time are now part of this cohort, as they have held for the last six months.
