Total bitcoin balance on cryptocurrency exchanges peak versus now.
When looking at the net daily transfer volume on exchanges with a 30-day moving average applied, it can be seen how different this recent sell-off and subsequent derivatives market liquidation was compared to the one seen in April/May.
During the May sell-off, 5,149 BTC were deposited per day on average during the peak of the sell-off. Comparatively, today 1,178 BTC have been withdrawn from exchanges per day on average over the last month.
