Crypto derivatives platform BitMEX has recorded an outflow of $524 million from its trading platform in July, making it the worst month for the exchange.
According to the data compiled by TokenAnalyst, the outflow of funds on the derivatives exchange remained on the upper side than inflows. However, last month, this figure skyrocketed from below $100 million in the previous month.
On the contrary, last year despite the dominance of bear on the crypto trading market, the exchange brought in $1.3 billion in funds and the inflow of funds was always greater than the outflow from the exchange.
