DBS Bank reports surge in crypto purchases on DDEx Exchange
According to statistics from one of Singapore’s largest banks, DBS Bank, institutional investors’ interest in bitcoin has increased after the massive selloff of cryptocurrencies in June 2022.
As investor interest in cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum grows, the volume of transactions on DDEx has increased dramatically. DBS said that 90% of all transactions on DDEx were buy orders in June due to the significant price drops in cryptocurrencies during that month.
DBS reported a fourfold rise in the proportion of Bitcoin bought on DDEx in June compared to April 2022, and a 65% increase in the quantity of ETH.
Bitcoin balance on exchanges reaches 4-year low
As the crypto winter deepens, only the dedicated Bitcoin investors can be seen holding onto their tokens, but not on the exchanges. Investors seem to be going into hibernation mode as indicated by the drop in on-chain activity by 13% in early July.
Research agency Arcane mentions a cause. The collapse of large crypto lenders — Celsius, Babel Finance, and Vauld, owing to experiencing issues with liquidity earlier this summer has been a major driving force behind this and has kicked off large amounts of withdrawals.
In June, 119,000 BTC was moved off of exchanges, and following this, in July, 96,000 Bitcoin were withdrawn. Later, in August, so far 65,000 BTC have been pulled out.
