Calculation

SOPR is calculated simply as (Price sold / Price bought)

SOPR values

There are three possible values of SOPR.

  1. SOPR > 1

    • The coin holder made a profit.
    • The selling price is higher than the buying price
  2. SOPR < 1

    • The coin holder made a loss.
    • Based on the formula above the selling price is lower than the buying price
  3. SOPR = 1

    • The coin holder made no profit or loss.

Here is an example of ETH SOPR:

What does this SOPR indicate?

  • In general, higher SOPR values indicate that more profit was realised that day. Successive peaks of high SOPR (creating an indicator uptrend) suggest continual distribution, usually during bullish price rallies.
  • A lower SOPR indicates fear and panic selling in the market.
