Notes about NVT Ratio

NVT Ratio (Network Value to Transactions Ratio) is similar to the PE Ratio used in equity markets.

When Bitcoin`s NVT is high, it indicates that its network valuation is outstripping the value being transmitted on its payment network, this can happen when the network is in high growth and investors are valuing it as a high return investment, or alternatively when the price is in an unsustainable bubble.

Liquid, Bitcoin`s first sidechain, went live 10 Oct 2018, taking volume off the main chain. NVT will need recalibration.

Calculation

Bitcoin`s NVT is calculated by dividing the Network Value (market cap) by the the daily USD volume transmitted through the blockchain. Note that this is the equivalent of the bitcoin token supply divided by the daily BTC value transmitted through the blockchain. Thus it is technically an expression of inverse monetary velocity.

In the chart above, the thin brown lines depict the raw values, while the solid brown line an interpolation to smooth the results. I`ve used a 28 day moving average, 14 days forward facing and 14 days backward facing, in order to not introduce needless lag to the resulting line.

History

NVT first made an appearance as a tweet on my Twitter account in Feb 2017. In that tweet I promised an explanatory article which came much later in Oct 2017, first debuting on Forbes.

In Feb 2018, Dimitry Kalichkin published his work to improve NVT for use as a more responsive indicator, hence Kalichkin NVT Signal. In the same month I applied some trader techniques to NVT Signal and published an article summarising how to use it within a trading environment.

Data Source

Data for Network Value and the USD value transmitted by the blockchain via Blockchain.com. The value transmitted by the blockchain is an estimation using Blockchain.com`s undisclosed proprietary estimation method.
