Bitcoin net inflows from wallets to exchanges have increased since Jan. 22, according to blockchain analytics firm Glassnode. A move to exchanges is often a bearish signal that reflects investors’ intent to sell.
Whales (large holders) deposits on exchanges have declined in recent weeks, which alone is a bullish signal, but relatively higher than withdrawals.
Historically, net inflows/net outflows have tended to move in waves, and while the current situation does not necessarily indicate investor sell-off, it may be predictive of future behavior by large investors.
An increase in the movement of bitcoin to exchanges could be seen as large holders preparing to sell, which could lead to price declines. However, the move is still in its early stages.
