Crypto Exchanges Register Record Bitcoin and Ethereum Outflows

Crypto Exchanges Register Record Bitcoin and Ethereum Outflows

This week saw a significant surge in Bitcoin (BTC) leaving centralized exchanges, reaching levels not seen since June 2023, as reported by the crypto analytics firm IntoTheBlock.

Lucas Outumuro, the head of research at IntoTheBlock, conducted a fresh analysis tracking the netflows of the leading cryptocurrency. Netflows gauge the movement of Bitcoin into and out of centralized crypto exchanges by subtracting withdrawals from deposits.

Outumuro highlights that this week witnessed a total net outflow of $540 million worth of Bitcoin from centralized crypto exchanges, marking the highest weekly outflow in eight months. IntoTheBlock views this movement of BTC away from exchanges as a positive indicator for the top cryptocurrency’s market sentiment.

The analysis also shows a notable 32.2% decrease in Bitcoin’s fees, which Outumuro attributes to a decline in ordinal-related activities. According to the analyst, fees serve as indicators of both spending willingness and demand for usage.

As of the time of writing, BTC is trading at $50,850, experiencing a 2.5% decrease over the past seven days. On the other hand, ETH is trading at $2,928, showing a more than 4% increase over the same period and maintaining its position as the second-ranked cryptocurrency by market capitalization.
