Outflows Of Bitcoin From Coinbase Indicate Institutions Are Buying In

in LeoFinance2 months ago (edited)


Blockchain data suggests big players are buying the dips.

It appears that some powerful investors are taking advantage of the recent price correction in order to accumulate more Bitcoin at a discount.

With BTC hitting record highs above $58k just a few days ago and trading between $49k and $51k over the last 24 hours, the cryptocurrency industry has been making headlines again.


As a result, more and more money continues to flow into Bitcoin during the dips, which are perceived as opportunities to stack more before it takes off for good.

More and more corporations, payment giants and institutions want in, and it is now more than obvious that the crypto space is finally attracting major attention. It's still early in the game though, and if large investors are looking to get an early lead, I think we should follow their example and keep stacking.


Spikes in outflows from Coinbase Pro

According to data shared by CryptoQuant, 13k BTC flowed out from institution-focused Coinbase Pro exchange, worth roughly $663 million. Ki-Young Ju, CEO of CryptoQuant, is hinting that US institutional investors are doing the job, and stated that this is the 'strongest bullish signal he has ever seen'.

It seems those BTC went to multiple Coinbase custody wallets. US institutional investors are still buying Bitcoin at the 48k price.

The exchange’s custody wallets are directly integrated with its over-the-counter (OTC) desk. Institutions typically transact over-the-counter to avoid influencing spot market prices. Hence, outflows from Coinbase Pro which end up in its cold wallets for custody are taken to represent institutional activity.

The latest pick up in outflows is a positive sign

The surge in outflows indicates that institutions remain confident in the crypto space despite the recent price correction, and think there is a bright future ahead. Actions speak louder than words, so I think their message is clear.

It is also worth mentioning that such outflow surges have occassionally been followed by the end of price pullbacks throughout BTC's journey to $58k. I do realize that history is not always an indicator of what's next, but the signs are undoubtedly good.

Thank you for your attention

I just saw that Square added 170 million worth the other day. Square as you probably know is Twitters CEO Jack Dorsey's finance business.

Crazy times! And we are just getting started.
