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

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

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.

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.

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.
