This chart compares the monetary velocity against M1 and M2 USD money stock.
Velocity is a measure of how quickly money is circulating in the economy. By plotting Bitcoin`s velocity against M1 and M2 money supply we can see whether Bitcoin use is trending towards payments or towards savings/investment.
M1 = "near cash" (typically held for short/medium term expenses)
M2 = "near cash" + "liquid non-cash assets" (majority held for longer term savings)
Bitcoin`s velocity is calculated by dividing the 90 day estimated USD transaction volume by the 90 day average USD market cap. (This is the equivalent to the $BTC circulated divided by the Bitcoin money supply.)
