Declining NVT Ratio Suggests Bitcoin could be a Value Buy

Apr 12, 2019


  • This our inaugural Bitcoin sentiment post, where every day, we will look at the factors driving sentiment for Bitcoin (BTC).
  • An important fact that stands out to us is the decline in the Network Value to Transaction (NVT) ratio
  • We look at the NVT as an implied P/E for Bitcoin and apply a 10-day exponential weighted moving average
  • A declining NVT would suggest that valuations for Bitcoin have not caught up with its usage
  • Overall Sentiment for Bitcoin has recently declined, whether it be the overall social sentiment score or average article sentiment
  • What we find interesting is that an improvement in the 30-day sentiment in early April preceded the recent pop in Bitcoin above $5k
