BTC - Realized Profit & Loss Tx Max (USD)


Bitcoin Realized Profit & Loss Transaction Maximums shows the single most profitable transaction's profit value (USD), and the single most unprofitable transaction's loss value (USD) for each timeframe. Profits are shown as positive values, losses as negative.

Bitcoin's USD Market Price is included for reference.

Technical Info

Bitcoin UTXO realized profits and losses measure the profit that has been made from selling Bitcoin. It is calculated by taking the difference between the price that Bitcoin was bought at (cost basis) and the price that it was sold at. Each time a coin moves, its cost basis and profit values reset. Here we chart the USD value of the single most profitable transaction in green and the single highest loss transaction in red, for each candle period.

UTXO stands for unspent transaction output. An UTXO is a Bitcoin that has been received in a transaction but has not yet been spent. When you buy Bitcoin, you are essentially receiving a new UTXO. When you sell Bitcoin, you are essentially spending an UTXO.

  • This metric is based on transactions (unadjusted).
  • Hourly and daily data grouping is done using min for this metric's minimum series.
  • Hourly and daily data grouping is done using max for this metric's maximum series.
  • Hourly data contains occasional gaps; no blocks were generated during these times.
  • The availability of this data is unique to on-chain analytics.
