The SEC lawsuit against Binance on June 5, accusing the crypto exchange of violating various securities laws, had a direct impact on the crypto market as well as the balance sheet of the crypto exchange.

According to data shared by crypto analytic firm Nansen, Binance saw a negative netflow of $778 million on the Ethereum blockchain, where $871 million worth of assets inflowed onto the exchange while $1.6 billion worth of assets went out of the exchange.

Even in the first 24 hours following the SEC lawsuit, Ethereum-based tokens have seen a negative netflow, where in the past hour, $14.8 million worth of assets flowed in, and $50.5 million worth of assets went out of the exchange.

Binance’s reserve assets had a net outflow of approximately $1.4 billion within the first hour of SEC lawsuit news, accounting for 2.6% of its total reserve assets of $52.9 billion.

This is a developing story, and further information will be added as it becomes available.
