Cryptocurrency exchange balances have also experienced a historically significant period of BTC outflows in response, reaching an outflow rate of 96.2k BTC/month. Such kind of massive outflows are rare having happened on only several occasions through history.

The impact of such a sustained, and high volume of BTC outflows is that the total balance held on exchanges has proceeded to multi-year lows. Over the course of March, over 96k BTC flowed out of the exchanges we track, reaching levels last seen in August 2018. Glassnode wrote,

“BTC is flowing out of exchanges at a rate of over 96k BTC/month, signalling historically strong accumulation is taking place.”
