Market

Several whales have moved huge quantities of Bitcoin from 1,000 coins to the biggest at 3,001 Bitcoin, around $30 million from OKEx to an unknown wallet. A colossal whale moved 216,016 ETH from an unknown wallet to another wallet, worth around $76 million. It’s clear that whales are moving coins around, perhaps getting ready for the crypto market bottom, to buy the dip or for the next leg down.
