Bitcoin Market Volatility Sparks Fear Amid Massive Exchange Inflows

Just two weeks ago, the crypto market was marked by extreme greed. Now, it’s gripped by fear.

This week, nearly 30,000 BTC, valued at $1.73 billion, entered exchanges, suggesting panic selling as the price declines. Wallets holding over 10,000 BTC have benefited significantly from the past six weeks of volatility.

These large addresses, likely dominated by exchange liquidity providers, have accumulated an additional 212,450 BTC, increasing their share of the total supply by 1.05%.
