Incoming crypto market recalibration: Bitfinex

Bitcoin’s sharp pullback since March 14 could test institutional appetite, which may lead to a period of price recalibration in the wider crypto market, according to a Bitfinex report shared with Cointelegraph:

“We anticipate a period of market recalibration as investors seek equilibrium amidst unprecedented inflows into Spot Bitcoin ETFs. Conversely, the altcoin market’s resilience, evidenced by growing investment flows and record outflows of ETH, underscores a bullish narrative for Ethereum and Layer 1 blockchain projects. As the market evolves, the performance of large-cap altcoins will be instrumental in determining its trajectory.”

Ether net outflows from exchanges hit a new record high as 154,000 Ether moved off crypto exchanges on March 11. This reduces the available supply on exchanges and could potentially lead to upward price movement, according to Bitfinex:

“The recent netflow data indicates a potential short-term upward trajectory for Ether, however, we suspect this could be the traders moving their Ether off-exchanges to trade coins on an ERC-20 protocol or a Layer 2 like the Base mainnet.”
