Been watching this for about half an hour - all I see is lots of Bitcoin symbols moving from the CNY tag at the bottom of the map, to China.
Does this mean that no one except China is buying any Bitcoins at the moment? Or am I not reading it properly (most likely!)

It's supposed to show you where bitcoin is being bought right now. Although I doubt that it is correct, there is too much going to China and very little to other places.

If it is accurate, it means Houston we have a problem.

It's not moving from Australia, it's moving from that "CNY".

Fiatleak is an illusion. They don't have real data about currencies flowing into and out of exchanges.  They have only the trade data from exchanges, which most exchanges make available. If someone trades AUD and Bitcoin on an exchange, they show that as AUD being invested in Bitcoin. If the same AUD and Bitcoins are traded again, they show it, again, as AUD being invested in Bitcoin.

If someone makes a withdrawal from an exchange, they don't know about it. They show all trades as buying into Bitcoin. That's why Fiatleak is an illusion.

They have cool graphics, but the conclusion they draw from the data is bogus.

Use the search next time. There are dozens of posts asking about the site.

The above poster is correct - it's really an illusion. Also the data they have is biased towards the exchanges that share it. Last time I checked (months ago) they didn't track any Canadian exchanges on board yet there are about 3 big ones currently.

I have also said that their data is completely wrong. The concept and looks of fiatleak are great, but there isn't any real (useful) data being displayed.
