According to data from Glassnode, significant spot-selling activity contributed to a total of about $200 million in selling across all exchanges. The majority of this selling activity came from Binance. This activity is measured by the Spot Cumulative Volume Delta (CVD), which tracks the net difference between buying and selling volumes, emphasizing who—buyers or sellers—is driving the market.
