Accumulation behavior of whales or mass withdrawal of Bitcoin again on Coinbase


Suggests buying on a coinbase basis

Around 20:00 on April 30, a large amount of Bitcoin withdrawals equivalent to 11,908 BTC (about 74 billion yen) was detected from Coinbase, a major US cryptocurrency exchange.


According to cryptocurrency on-chain data provider CryptoQuant, a total of 48,900 BTC or more of Bitcoin was withdrawn from Coinbase four times in April.

Ki CEO of CryptoQuant pointed out that the most recent trend of money movements is likely to be due to whales (large investors) using OTC, not from trading wallets, “whales are buying bitcoins.” I commented.

The withdrawal timing this time is a large amount of withdrawals at $ 57,000, which is the recovery phase from the plunge. Large withdrawals from major exchanges are likely to lead to a decline in selling pressure, as it suggests that funds will be transferred to custody wallets, etc. with a view to medium- to long-term holdings.
