It’s been revealed that the CEO of CryptoQuant, Ki Young Ju, said that Bitcoin whales are fueling the Bitcoin move to the downsides.
At the moment of writing this article, BTC is trading in the red, and the king coin is priced at $31,864.53.
On Twitter, Ju posted that there are important inflows into exchanges from large investors that began this week, and this suggests that large BTC holders were ready to sell.
He also said that BTC is on its way to $100,000.
Per CryptoQuant’s Exchange Whale Ratio indicator, “the level is now above 85%, which indicates a bearish scenario. A level below 85% indicates a bullish scenario.”
Whales are depositing $BTC to exchanges.
No doubt it’ll hit $100k this year, but in the short-term, if we wouldn’t see any significant buying pressure from @CoinbasePro, I think $BTC would be bearish.

He also added that outflows from Coinbase normally are heading to the exchange’s vaults, which are holding crypto on behalf of investors.
“It seems Coinbase significant outflows usually go to many cold wallets owned by the Coinbase OTC desk. Pretty good hit rate. Above 10k BTC is significant.”
He also said that investors are pushing the price lower in order to create a period of consolidation.
“It seems BTC sellers came from Coinbase. Coinbase Premium Index has been a negative value since an hour ago. Coinbase whales might want BTC to go lower for consolidation,” he said as cited by the Daily Hodl.
