All Time Highers / Lowers
IntoTheBlock identifies addresses that bought within 20% of a crypto-asset’s all-time high price and classifies them as All Time Highers. Similarly, addresses that bought within 20% of the all-time low price are classified as All Time Lowers.
If an All Time Higher sells their position, the number of All Time Highers decreases. However, if prices drop even beyond 20% of the all-time high and one of the All Time Highers buys back, their total would increase. Same logic applies to All Time Lowers’ addresses.

As with the Traders indicator, a spike in the number of All Time Highers points to high fear of missing out in a crypto-asset.
