He has tweeted that the majority of incoming transactions to crypto exchanges are being made by large Bitcoin holders, aka whales. The top 10 deposit transfers have brought 90% of the overall volume in one hour.

However, Bitcoin manages to hold above the $60,000 level.

Meanwhile, Bitcoin is not remaining for a long time on exchanges; it is being withdrawn by investors to cold wallets for long-term storage. And by now, it has reached a three-year low of 2,449,773.473 BTC.

That is approximately 13% of the whole Bitcoin supply that is currently in circulation.
