As per data provided by IntoTheBlock analytics data aggregator, on Tuesday, July 27, 13,820 Bitcoins were moved from the Binance exchange.
The analytics firm believes this is the largest BTC withdrawal from this centralized crypto exchange since April 19, when Bitcoin had reached the $56,000 level.
When negative exchange net flows occur, the tweet continues, it is, as a rule, a sign that whales and smaller investors are accumulating Bitcoin. They move it to cold storage vaults or to projects that offer yield farming.
