Key Takeaways

  • Bitcoin’s netflows, measuring BTC movement in and out of centralized exchanges, saw a significant outflow of $540 million this week.
  • Ethereum (ETH) also experienced net outflows, marking seven consecutive weeks of withdrawals from exchanges.
  • The decline in transaction fees for both BTC and ETH suggests reduced willingness to spend the assets.


According to crypto analytics firm IntoTheBlock, Bitcoin’s netflows from centralized exchanges reached their highest level since June 2023. This outflow signals a bullish sentiment among investors, as moving BTC off exchanges often indicates long-term holding intentions.
