Bitcoin Revisits $44k As Exchange Outflows See Uptick

Bitcoin’s price has been in an uptrend for the last day, as it once more reaches $44k. According to data on the blockchain, it may have been due to an increase in foreign exchange outflows.

Bitcoin Exchange outflows noticed a spike in the past couple of days

In a CryptoQuant blog post, an analyst noted that BTC exchange outflows had seen increased values in recent months.

The “all exchanges outflow” is an indicator that measures the total amount of Bitcoin exiting wallets of all exchanges.

The metric’s current value is increasing, which means that more BTC are leaving exchanges. This trend is usually bullish, as holders typically withdraw their coins from exchanges to keep them safe. An indicator of whale accumulation can be an excessive outflow.

On the other hand, when the indicator’s value stays low, it implies not many investors are moving their Bitcoin off exchanges at the moment.

The opposite indicator, the inflow can spike up and this could make the trend bearish. This happens because most holders deposit money to exchanges in order to withdraw fiat currency or buy altcoins.
