Crypto Industry News:
According to Chainalysis, bitcoins are sent to exchanges, but they don't find a place in their order books. This would mean that market participants send their cryptocurrency to exchanges to sell it, but are not yet blocking it on orders. Instead, they wait for the price to rise.
Trading intensity analyzes two variants of stock market data. It is about the number of BTC in the order books of the exchange in relation to the number of coins sent to the exchanges. A high value for trade intensity would mean that many BTC orders are placed on exchanges for a small amount of bitcoins sent to exchanges, while a low value for trade intensity would indicate otherwise. At the time of writing this publication, the median BTC trading intensity was 2.13. This is the lowest level in a year.
Chainalysis data also suggests that the BTC value sent to exchanges is quite high at the moment. According to Chainalysis data, there has been a change of 26.36 BTC in bitcoin held on exchanges, which is not only positive but above the 180-day average. Hence, from the point of view of trading intensity, this makes the number of BTC in exchange order books low or relatively lower than the increase in the number of bitcoins stored on exchanges.
Looking at it in the context of a price scenario can reveal where market participants expect the next price increase. Since a large number of bitcoins are traded on exchanges but have not yet been sold or placed to place an order, the breeder and trader expect the price to rise. When the price rises as there are more inflows to the exchanges than the payouts, a selling frenzy would ensue.
Market Participants therefore seem to be waiting for prices to rise to their preferred level in order to start their sell orders and cash in their profits. However, this may prove to be a problem when prices rise significantly.
