“The results are in. Most Bitcoin HODLers claim they will go down with the ship. That even if #Bitcoin never goes up, or if the price steadily declines for years, even decades, they will never lose faith. Hope is not a good strategy. If you never sell what good are your Bitcoins?”
Announced by the CEO and chief global strategist of Euro Pacific Capital, Peter Schiff responding to the survey he posted yesterday in his Twitter account.
It shows that precisely 57.5% (give or take 16,200) of bitcoin HODLers would prefer not to throw the towel and ready to keep their prized digital asset to the grave if the value remains below the $10,000 level.
Another 15.1%, or around 4,200 individuals our of the 28,168., said it would be a year before they choose to sell. About 14% of the respondents said they would ‘hodl’ for three years and 13% for the following decade before selecting to leave their positions.
It appears inconceivable that anybody would eagerly bite the dust clutching dear bitcoin because the cost deteriorated underneath the mental $10,000 edge.

Bitcoin bulls have battled to pick up energy since the Bitcoin organize planned gracefully cut of May 11 – the occasion viewed by numerous individuals as a possible defining moment for a bullish breakout. Past such opportunities have prompted a significant convention. Double the cost of BTC broke above $10,000, and twice it was dismissed, at one highlight as low as $8,600.
Today, BTC is exchanging at $9,248, down 0.9% throughout the most recent 24 hours, as indicated by markets.Bitcoin.com information. The immediate objective is to break above $10,000 and remain there. Experts consider this level as significant for starting BTC’s hotly-anticipated value rally.
