Analytics chart provided by Santiment data aggregator shows that Bitcoin supplies on crypto exchanges continue to melt, dropping to the 18-month long that was last seen on January 2 this year.
The Santiment team of experts believes that the 18-month low reached by the Bitcoin supply on exchanges reduces chances of any big sell-off in the future and improves the odds of the eventual Bitcoin recovery in the future.
? #Bitcoin is inching close to the then 18-month low of its supply on exchange ratio, which was hit back on Jan 2, 2021. As $BTC continues moving off exchanges during these suppressed prices, it's a promising sign that markets have decreased selloff risk. https://t.co/DQzTx822Py pic.twitter.com/WVP7sfgnty— Santiment (@santimentfeed) July 24, 2021
In mid-July, Glassnode provided a similar chart of crypto investors withdrawing large amounts of Bitcoin from crypto trading venues, which was read as a sign of a potential price suirge.
Earlier today, the largest cryptocurrency by market cap posted a 4 percent growth and inched closer back to the $34,000 level.

Meanwhile, the open interest on Bitcoin futures is seeing a sharp decrease. CIO of Lex Moskovski capital interprets it as the market being in fear and institutional investors being careful in betting on Bitcoin.

People prefer using cash and stablecoins as their collateral of choice instead of crypto.
I read it as fear despite CT being relatively calm. pic.twitter.com/lxKlYeSlbV
