TokenAnalyst Updates

Spent Outputs Profit Ratio (SOPR) metric added to our API

  • Today we are launching our Spent Outputs Profit Ratio (SOPR) metric, as created by Renato Shirakashi. In essence, it shows whether bitcoin outputs (UTXOs) were spent at a profit or a loss by dividing their value when they are spent, by their value when they were created. If that ratio is above one, it means that a UTXO was spent when it was worth more than when it was created.
  • We are launching SOPR aggregated by day and by the hour. The daily SOPR is calculated by summing the USD value of UTXOs spent that day using the current daily average price, and dividing it by the sum of the USD values from the daily average price on the day each UTXO was created.
  • This is a great metric, but there is a lot of intra-day variability in Bitcoin price as anyone who has likely read this far will know. The below chart highlights SOPR by the hour, which applies the exact same concept, but calculating SOPR for the UTXOs spent each hour, using the hourly average price at the time of spending and creation.
  • Using hourly spending windows and prices we are able to see much larger fluctuations in SOPR on shorter time-scales. We look forward to seeing what the community can do with this metric.
