Demand

Our Typologies report gives you a guide to who’s who on the blockchain

BTC flows

People and businesses transfer assets on the blockchain for different use cases, for example to trade, invest, or purchase goods and services. These flows show the overall level of asset use and how assets flow between use cases. Most flows on the blockchain are assets in transit between services, moving via unknown entities.

Exchange BTC flows

Assets flow between exchanges as traders balance assets across venues, each of which offers different prices, liquidity and products. Flows to crypto-to-fiat exchanges suggest people are interested in cashing out to fiat, while flows to crypto-to-crypto and derivatives-only exchanges suggest people are interested in the broader set of trading opportunities typically available on these exchanges.

Liquidity of BTC held

Liquidity is the degree to which an entity sends on assets it receives. Illiquid entities act as sinks, reducing the number of assets available to buy. An increase in illiquid assets may therefore potentially increase prices.

Unrealized USD gain of BTC held

Dive deeper into mining pools and their role in the market with our recent report

Destination of mining pool BTC

Mining pools typically receive newly mined assets, then distribute these to miners who are members of the pool. Miners may then send assets to other destinations, such as exchanges, where assets may be sold to cover the costs of mining. Mining pools can also receive assets from other sources, and if these assets are sent on by mining pools then the destination of these assets is recorded here.

Known illicit BTC funds held

Illicit services, or their counterparties, retain assets they receive until they can be placed into legitimate services for laundering. Illicit funds held therefore represent the known scale of future potential laundering.
