"77.9% of all liquid STEEM is stored on the exchanges."
The amount of Steem stored on the exchanges are decreased/decreasing in general, but it is still high. Probably people are transferred them back to their Steem accounts, and powered up due to the increased curation rewards. Or maybe some of the people decided to sell some Steem. I don't understand why people are storing Steem on the exchanges (other than for trading purposes). What if the exchange will be hacked, and they will lose all of their Steem? Storing Steem (especially a lot of Steem) on the exchanges are very risky. You can lose that Steem anytime.

i assume there are a lot of speculators out there who buy steem on an exchange for example and don't know really about the platform, they just buy it because of speculation.

Bang, I did it again... I just resteemed your post!
