According to Arkham, Grayscale also deposited considerable amounts of altcoins, including Ethereum (ETH), Avalanche (AVAX), Polygon (MATIC), Lido (LDO), Uniswap (UNI), Aave, Chainlink (LINK) and others.

After the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) approved spot Bitcoin exchange-traded funds (ETF), Grayscale saw billions in outflows as holders of the firm’s Bitcoin Trust (GBTC) opted for ETFs with lower fees.

Whale tracking service Whale Alert also spotted several large transfers headed to wallets belonging to Coinbase, including:

Grayscale’s offloading and the other large whale transfers have coincided with a correction in digital assets markets.

According to crypto data aggregator Coinglass, more than $316.29 million of liquidations have occurred in the last 24 hours – the vast majority of which being traders attempting to leverage long Bitcoin during the dip.

At time of writing, Bitcoin is trading at $60,069, down 18.2% from its all-time high.
