EnglishBitcoin is currently in a bull run. How many BTC are locked in exchanges that can't be accessed from the users? Like for e.g Cryptopia, Quadriga, MTGOX

Looking for accurate information on the following: Estimated total amount of Bitcoins that are inaccessible from users and on which exchanges? Some notable ones that I know [quadriga, cryptopia, MTGOX] Please provide me with the numbers and additional exchanges that I am missing. Thank you

Quite a big number that can't be moved or sold.
There is also OKEX with another 200.000 BTC.

If you have any other exchange feel free to give extra info with a new reply.

The reward is yours.
