Fidelity’s director of global macro Jurrien Timmer is updating his outlook on Bitcoin (BTC) as the leading crypto asset by market cap struggles near the $20,000 level.
Timmer tells his 126,000 Twitter followers that when considering Bitcoin’s “P/E” (price to earnings), a metric traditionally used to value stocks by comparing the company’s earnings with its stock price, BTC is currently significantly undervalued.
The analyst compares the earnings of a company to the number of users on the Bitcoin network.
“Is BTC cheaper than it looks? If we consider a simple ‘[price to earnings]’ metric for BTC to be the price/network ratio, then that ratio is back to 2017 and 2013 levels, even though BTC itself is only back to late 2020 levels. Valuation often is more important than price.”
In similar fashion, Timmer uses a metric that records the number of non-zero Bitcoin addresses with the price of BTC. Historically, price has fluctuated above and below the demand curve.
“Another way to highlight this is by overlaying Bitcoin’s non-zero addresses against its price. Price is now below the network curve.”
The macro analyst also takes a look at Bitcoin’s dormancy flow, which measures the average number of days that coins have remained untouched. Based on Timmer’s interpretation of the historical track record of the metric, Bitcoin’s dormancy flow is at levels not seen in over a decade, before BTC went on parabolic rallies.
“The next chart shows how technically oversold Bitcoin is. Glassnode’s dormancy flow indicator is now to levels not seen since 2011.”
