A short while ago, analytics data emerged showing that, in just one hour, a staggering 12,354 Bitcoins have been bought on Coinbase and withdrawn to cold storage vaults.
According to similar data covered by U.Today in early May and April, this was likely financial institutions buying the dip again.
$688.3 million in Bitcoin leaves Coinbase
The CIO of Moskovski Capital has shared a Glassnode chart showing that, within an hour, a massive amount of BTC—12,345 coins—have been moved from the leading U.S.-based crypto exchange, Coinbase, which has recently become a public company via a direct listing on the Nasdaq.
The USD equivalent of withdrawn BTC is $688,345,113. The author of the post believes that this may well be the work of financial institutions.
