Mass Withdrawal of USDT From Binance Draws Concern

  • Binance saw USDT withdrawals worth 100 million.
  • Regardless, the exchange’s daily trade volume crossed $11 billion.

Binance [BNB] has been the subject of FUD (Fear, Uncertainty, and Doubt) of late due to reports about fines and Changpeng Zhao stepping down. Additionally, recent data revealed a significant outflow of the stablecoin Tether [USDT] from Binance.

This outflow was over $100 million, and it marked the highest withdrawal in over three months. While previous instances showed spikes in USDT leaving the exchange, they were not over $50 million.

The current withdrawal volume could be routine market activity, but any surge raises suspicion, given the recent developments concerning the exchange.

BNB Volume And Price Recovers

BNB has been understandably affected by the ongoing changes within the exchange. Since it experienced a more than 10% decline in value, it has struggled to regain the $250 price range.

At the time of this update, it was trading around $233, with a slight increase of less than 1%. The Relative Strength Index (RSI) confirmed a bear trend, with the RSI line positioned below the neutral line.

However, the trend stabilized following a peak in BNB’s trade volume — it surpassed $2 billion, according to an analysis of Santiment’s chart.

As of this writing, the trade volume was around $644 million. This decline in volume suggested a reduction in BNB’s trading activity.
