One is a balanced price. This is calculated as the difference between the realized price (the purchase price of all coins) and the transfer price (the cumulative value of days' worth of coins destroyed).
The second is the difficulty regression price, which models the total cost of mining BTC. This is calculated by running a logarithmic regression model between difficulty and market capitalization.
Glassnode analysts have not ruled out another wave of capitulation due to the increasing proportion of "unprofitable" coins available to speculators.
