Bitcoin Bearish Signal: Coinbase Receives Large Inflows | Bitcoinist.com – Bitcoinist

Published

On-chain data shows the crypto exchange Coinbase Pro has received a large amount of Bitcoin inflows today, a sign that could prove to be bearish for the coin’s price.
As pointed out by an analyst in a CryptoQuant post, Coinabse Pro has today received big inflows from supply not moved since at least six months ago.
The “exchange inflow” is an indicator that measures the total amount of Bitcoin moving into wallets of a centralized exchange (which, in this case, is Coinbase Pro).
When the value of this metric spikes up, it means a large number of coins are entering into the exchange’s wallets right now.
Such a trend can be bearish for the crypto’s price as investors usually deposit their coins to exchanges for selling purposes.

Prolonged large inflows can be a sign of dumping from whales. On the other hand, low values of the indicator suggest a normal amount of selling is going on in the market right now.
This kind of trend can be either bullish, or neutral for Bitcoin, depending on whether investors are also withdrawing their coins or not.
Now, here is a chart that shows the trend in the BTC inflows for Coinbase over the past few months:

It seems like the inflows had a spike on the exchange today, and the largest contribution was from holders belonging to the 6 to 12 months cohort.
Around 3.1k BTC was deposited by this group over the last 24 hours, with a further 200 BTC each coming from the 12-18 months and 3-5 years cohorts.
This kind of selling from long-term holders may imply that Bitcoin could see some more decline in the near future.
At the time of writing, Bitcoin’s price floats around $21k, down 1% in the last seven days. Over the past month, the crypto has lost 26% in value.
Below is a chart that shows the trend in the price of the coin over the last five days.
