why are people selling off Treasury bonds now in mass because they don't think the rates are worth it? why they kept them in all of 2020?

just when rates are rising, why are they now deciding to sell them when they have been near 0 percent all last year?

    Bonds used to pay 25%.  The ones being sold off now have come to maturity and won't be worth anything for years.  Nobody in their right mind holds onto them in this economic situation.
