The collapse of FTX can be considered as a major cause as many people have lost faith in exchanges when FTX was one of the top exchanges in the market at that time.

Binance, the world’s largest cryptocurrency exchange also witnessed a a wave of massive customer withdrawals last December after a series of proof-of-reserve fuds.

Binance’s Recent Bitcoin Withdrawals

Earlier this week, over 160000 BTC (worth $4.6 billion) was withdrawn from one of Binance’s wallets, making it the largest Bitcoin withdrawal in history.

However, analyst Colin Wu shed more light on the move, stating that “Binance’s cold wallet was internally adjusted to a new address and the new address was not transferred after receiving the funds.”

It is worth noting that Binance halted BTC withdrawals a day earlier due to network congestion. However, it soon returned to normal.
