According to the data, the amount of Bitcoin (BTC) that investors withdraw from exchanges continues to run to a record.
According to data from on-chain analytics company Glassnode on November 23, the monthly amount of BTC withdrawals from major exchanges has increased to 179 thousand.
Major exchanges witnessed record highs in BTC
As the FTX crash continues to wreak havoc on the market, users of the exchange are busy pulling their assets into unattended wallets.
As Cointelegraph previously reported, $3 billion worth of assets were withdrawn from exchanges following the crisis in FTX.
Glassnode data revealed that as of November 23, there was the largest ever BTC outflow from exchanges in almost a month. According to the data, the tendency to withdraw assets from stock markets still continues.
Glassnode’s “Net Position Change in Exchanges” metric determined the amount of BTC withdrawn from exchanges in the last 30 days as 178,683. This metric covers all exchanges, including FTX.
On a daily basis, the habits and actions of the stock market customers are quite volatile. The last record amount of BTC withdrawn from exchanges on a daily basis was 140,000 on November 9th. Since then, withdrawals have decreased somewhat. Locally, 19 BTC outflows took place on November 19.
However, since then, the trend has reversed again, with a total of more than 86,000 BTC outflows on November 23, according to Glassnode data.
