Is BTC in for a bottom?

If the Covid crash of Mar. 2020 is taken as an exception, the percentage of wallets making losses during every bear market has decreased. The percentage may also be decreasing because the total number of Bitcoin wallets with balance (green line) is in a steady rise since the inception of Bitcoin.

During the 2014 bottom, over 400k wallets were Out of the Money, whereas as of writing, in 2022, over 24 million wallets are Out of the Money.

Also, the market crashed by over 85% in the 2013 crash and around 80% in the 2017 crash. The market has already crashed by over 77% since Nov. 2021. The trend indicates that the bear markets are getting shorter over time. Does that mean that the market is in for a bottom anytime soon?
