Bitcoin outflows on centralized exchanges at their highest level since the beginning of the year
Bitcoin outflows from centralized exchanges have soared to their highest level since the beginning of the year, according to a new Glassnode report this week. Traders would have withdrawn around 40,000 BTC in the past seven days. The outflows would have accelerated to a rate of over 100,000 BTC per month – only for the third time since September 2019. There was a massive outflow, especially at Coinbase. Currently, only 13.2% of the BTC in circulation is held on exchanges. “This represents an almost complete reversal of the significant inflow seen during the May sell-off,” the report said.

The CoinJar Card should allow users to make crypto purchases “wherever Mastercard is accepted.” The exchange will convert the digital currency CoinJar desired for payment into Australian dollars and thus carry out the transaction.
