‘Bitcoin’s six-week run of outflows has been driven’ by these factors

Republished by Plato

Published

on

The Bitcoin market was witnessing strong sell-offs for over a month now. On Monday, the largest digital asset plunged to its monthly lows of $31k, triggered by the ongoing crackdown by China. This has spread panic among investors.

Over the past week, Bitcoin outflows totaled a massive sum of $89 million, while the bitcoin outflows value hit $487 million for the year. This was 1.6% of assets under management as indicated by the data offered by CoinShares.

The above chart indicated that the top cryptos like Bitcoin and Ethereum were both noting a higher selling pressure in the current market.

This was the third consecutive week of outflows for the entire crypto market and it amounted to $79 million leaving the market. Researchers have termed this as ‘the longest bear run in outflows since February 2018’. Currently, for June, the net outflows remained high at $210.5 million with another week left of the month.

According to Matt Weller, global head of market research at Forex.com:

“Bitcoin’s six-week run of outflows has been driven by the combination of environmental concerns and an increasingly antagonistic regulatory environment in China. With these themes still in effect and prices subdued, it may be a while before we start to see another period of sustained fund inflows.”

Following China’s crackdown, authorities in one of the largest Bitcoin mining provinces, Sichuan ordered the closing of the cryptocurrency mining projects. Owing to such negative sentiments in the market, BTC value has remained low at $32k, at the press time.

Data from Alternative.me also suggested ‘Extreme Fear’ in the market and its value has fallen to 10, suggesting more fear than greed.

Bitcoin has now lost almost 50% of its value since the peak observed in April.

Ethereum, the second-largest cryptocurrency was also seeing minor outflows of $1.9 million last week. In the previous week, it reported a total outflow of $14.6 million, which was restricted compared to Bitcoin’s outflows. Ether outflows represented only 0.14% of assets under management, suggesting the negative sentiment had remained focused on Bitcoin.

Crypto Trader’s $20 Investment Explodes to $1,184,154,683,482 on Coinbase – But He’s Not Cashing Out

After investing $20 in the crypto markets, one crypto trader just woke up to a one-trillion dollar fortune in his Coinbase account.

Chris Williamson, a nurse from Georgia, says he invested $20 in Rocket Bunny (BUNNY) cryptocurrency on Coinbase last week. After the trade, his portfolio balance soon skyrocketed to a staggering $1,184,154,683,482.

On paper, this made Williamson the richest man in the world.

‘I woke up, it’s like 9:00 a.m. and I always check my phone to check how my crypto to see how it’s doing and I’m just like, ‘Naw, I’m sleeping.

I look at it again and I’m like… at that point I fall out of my bed, literally.”

Despite the big balance, Williamson says he was unable to cash out or send the crypto to a private wallet. He contacted both Coinbase and Rocket Bunny. A representative from Coinbase told him they were looking into the problem, while Rocket Bunny did not immediately respond.

Coinbase later confirmed the trader’s massive balance was a glitch, and would be corrected. 

This isn’t the first time the crypto exchange giant had a glitch in its system. Back in April 2020, crypto analyst Captain Scio pointed out a massive blunder on the Coinbase Pro app, showing that someone had purchased 42,085 BTC, worth $306 million at the time, for just 18 cents. 

Williamson is keeping a positive attitude on the situation.

“The ongoing joke right now between me and my friends in Coinbase and one of the emails I sent them was like: ‘Look, I need y’all to let me know what’s going on because I got a mega-yacht company ready to build me a penguin-shaped yacht.

‘So, you know, let me know.’”

BUNNY is a utility token on Binance Smart Chain. It’s used to power the broader Rocket Bunny ecosystem of dApps (decentralized applications), which includes Rocket Drop (launchpad), Rocket Swap (DEX) and Rocket Labs (testing ground).
