Cryptocurrency exchanges hold around 3.08 million bitcoins on their customers’ behalf, nearly 16.5% of the total supply of 21 million, according to research conducted by The Block’s Larry Cermak.

While the absolute amount looks large, the percentage figure is down by 10% since February 9 when exchanges held around 3.43 million bitcoins, representing nearly 19% of the total supply.

Notably, Coinbase is the largest bitcoin holder, having around 984,300 BTC in its wallets. Coinbase is followed by Huobi (413,000 BTC), Binance (318,000 BTC), OKEx (268,000 BTC), and BitMEX (217,000 BTC).
