Bitcoin, Ethereum, Cardano and XRP have the potential for gains in 2023 according to this on-chain metric
Large market capitalization cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, Ethereum, XRP, Cardano and meme coins Dogecoin and Shiba Inu had a bullish start to 2023. As the cryptocurrencies continue yielding gains for holders, an on-chain metric, the MVRV Z-score signals these assets are currently undervalued.
MVRV Z-Score is a metric based on market value and realized value of cryptocurrencies. Market value is the total value of all coins that have already been mined. This is obtained by multiplying the coin’s circulating supply with the current price of the asset.
The realized value is the sum of the latest selling price of every token in circulation at the time it was sold, and this is obtained by adding the most recent sale price for every token already mined, the last time it moved to a different wallet address.
The MVRV-Z score is used to assess when an asset is overvalued or undervalued relative to its “fair value”, as underlined by the deviation between its market and realized capitalization. When market value is significantly higher than realized value, it historically indicates a market top, while the opposite indicates a market bottom.
