Bitcoin Price Drops 5% As 12k BTC Flow Into Binance

On-chain data shows that shortly after crypto exchange Binance observed Bitcoin inflow of around 12k BTC, price fell by almost 5%.

Huge Bitcoin Inflow To Binance

As pointed out by a CryptoQuant post, inflow of around 12k BTC was seen on Binance, the largest crypto exchange by market volume.

The Bitcoin inflow is an indicator that shows the total amount of BTC transferred to a crypto exchange from a personal wallet.

As investors usually send their crypto to exchange wallets for cashing out, altcoin purchasing, etc., the indicator’s value going up would imply there is some selling pressure in the market.

A strong increase in the inflow metric can have direct effects on the price, which usually shows as a drop just a few hours later.

The chart also displays the curve for  BTC’s price. It looks like just a few hours after this spike occurred, the crypto dropped in value by about 5%.

And it makes sense as movement of 12k BTC is quite significant, and a spike like this might mean there is some short-term selling pressure in the market.

While this inflow was quite significant, another indicator, the Bitcoin all exchanges netflow, shows that there was outflow of about 19k BTC from all exchanges. This more than makes up for the inflow to Binance, hence the exchange reserve overall still looks to be down.

After enjoying a refreshing period of prolonged uptrend, Bitcoin’s price fell down after peaking at $42k. Now, it seems to be range bound below the $40k mark as the coin can’t seem to break it again.

It’s unclear where the price will head from here. It could either continue to be stuck in this range bound environment below the $40k level, or perhaps it will have a breakthrough soon, and a bull run will ensue as hinted by the Bitcoin bullish crossover.
