Binance CEO CZ responds as data points to billions in exchange outflows


While the data suggests that crypto assets have been leaving centralized exchanges at a rapid pace over the past week, Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao argues that it may not be as bad as it seems.

Major analytics platforms such as Nansen and DeFiLlama have measured the rise in Binance’s exchange outflows over the past seven days after news of the SEC’s lawsuit against the company hit the airwaves.

According nansenthere has been a net outflow of $2.36 billion from Binance in the last seven days along with $123.7 million from Binance.US.

DeFillama reported an even higher figure of $3.35 billion in outflows from Binance, while Glassnode data shows the exchange BTC the balance decreased 5.7% or about $1 billion in the last seven days.

However, in a June 10 Twitter post, CZ argued that some exchange output data may be skewed, as some third-party analytics measure the change in assets under management as “output,” which would include times when that the prices of cryptocurrencies decrease.

Instead, CZ claimed that the company’s output in the last 24 hours on June 9 was around $392 million, which pales in comparison to the $7 billion in one-day output that was recorded last year. last in November, at the time of the FTX collapse.

CZ went on to explain that large entries and exits are perfectly normal in times of volatility.

“Some even only measure the outputs, not the inputs. On a strong price day like today, many arbitrage traders move a large amount of funds between exchanges, typically exponentially more than on normal days.”
