Bitmex is not alone; Bitstamp customers have also withdrawn. The questionable state of the market is also not helping with the situation.

Before the Black Thursday, Bitmex was flourishing. However, its reserves had started dwindling since January. And according to itscryptonews.com, Bitmex had more than 306,000 bitcoin held in reserves, but now, after the exchange, it has only 228,000.

It shows that the Bitmex customers removed 36% of the BTC. Also, it means that the firm withdrew the Bitcoin it had in its possession and transferred the funds elsewhere.

Coinbase also has the same story. It had 1 billion BTC in reserves as of January 25. It had a stash of $8.57 billion, but now it has a reserve of $6.92 billion. Along with Coinbase, Huobi is also suffering. It has 9.38% of its BTC reserves removed from the exchange.

Bitfinex also lost its reserve in the last three months of this year. It has lost 29% of its reserve. Along with Bitfinex, Bitstamp Clients also withdrew 72%.

Earlier it held the sixth position, but now it holds the 11th place. Kraken’s Customers also withdrew its reserves. And its reserves have dropped 24% since January 25.
