Bitcoin Whale Presence On Derivatives Still High, More Volatility Ahead?

24/06/2022 8:00pm

On-chain data shows Bitcoin whales are transferring large amounts to derivatives exchanges right now, a signal that more volatility could be ahead for the crypto. Bitcoin All Exchanges To Derivatives Flow Continues To Show High Value As explained by an analyst in a CryptoQuant post, BTC whale activity on derivatives exchanges still seems to be high. The relevant indicator here is the “all exchanges to derivatives exchanges flow,” which measures the total amount of Bitcoin moving from spot exchange wallets to derivatives. When the value of this metric spikes up, it means whales are currently moving a large number of coins to derivatives exchanges right now. Such a trend usually occurs around lows in the price of the crypto as whales look to get themselves long positions.

This kind of trend has historically lead to tops in the value of the coin. Now, here is a chart that shows the trend in the Bitcoin all exchanges to derivatives flow over the last couple of years: Looks like the value of the metric has been quite high recently | Source: CryptoQuant As you can see in the above graph, the Bitcoin spot to derivatives flow has spiked up recently, suggesting that whale activity is pretty high right now. In fact, the current value of the indicator is actually the highest ever in the history of the cryptocurrency, implying there is an all-time high rate of whales on derivatives currently.

Historically, the price of the crypto has observed significant volatility whenever the metric’s value has been elevated. Based on this trend, the quant believes that the value of the coin could still see further fluctuations in the near future. The analyst also notes that a reduction in the all exchanges to derivatives flow will need to be there, for the volatility to die down. BTC Price At the time of writing, Bitcoin’s price floats around $21.1k, up 4% in the last seven days. Over the past month, the crypto has lost 27% in value.

So far, the crypto has managed to break above $21k again, but it’s yet unclear whether this recovery will last. Featured image from Unsplash.com, charts from TradingView.com, CryptoQuant.com
