Unknown Bitcoin Whale transfers $2.2 billion worth of BTCs 

Investors or traders who own a large number of Bitcoins are typically called Bitcoin whales.

Published

on

A BTC whale moved an estimated $2.24 billion worth of BTC with a transaction cost less than $7, according to reports by Whale alert, a BTC whale tracker.

Each BTC transaction was done separately to unknown BTC wallets, containing a stack of 27,000 and 40,000 BTCs, and about six BTC wallets were used to facilitate the BTC transactions. 

These further elaborates the advantage BTC transactions have over conventional transfer systems such as transfers through commercial banks that may attract up to 1% or more of the amount being used to facilitate the transaction.

“This (referring to the last 27,635 bitcoin transaction) and other recent large #BTC transactions are likely the change of the transactions,” Whale Alert explained.

In the Bitcoin world, investors or traders who own a large number of Bitcoins are typically called Bitcoin whales. This means a Bitcoin whale would be an individual or business entity (with a single Bitcoin address) owning around 1000 Bitcoins or more. 

Presently Bitcoin is still trading below the resistance level of $9500.

As BTC whales accumulate BTCs, Bitcoins circulating supply reduces, and this can weaken any bearish trend BTC finds itself in. Meaning that over time, it’s possible that as Bitcoin approaches its fixed supply of 21 million, the price of BTC will go up, with BTC’s present demand factored in. 

Chainalysis a leading crypto analytic firm also explained activities in the BTC market for the month of June. The report said; 

“As of June 2020, roughly 18.6 million Bitcoins have been mined. We break that 18.6 million Bitcoin down into three buckets based on its movements to date.

“Roughly 60% of that Bitcoin is held by entities — either people or businesses — that have never sold more than 25% of Bitcoin they’ve ever received, and have often held on to that Bitcoin for many years, which we label as Bitcoin held for long-term investment.”

$70 billion lost in Crypto market amid rising U.S dollar

Other leading crypto assets including Ethereum, Cardano, Litcoin, Chainlink, Polkadot, and Stellar lost more than 8% in value.

Published

The crypto market just lost about $70 billion, as significant selling pressure from crypto sellers pushed the value of cryptocurrencies lower across the market spectrum amid the rising U.S dollar and some profit-taking.

  • The global crypto market value is $930.47 billion, a 5.61% decrease over the last day.
  • The U.S dollar was fired up as it recorded impressive gains at the Tuesday trading session in London taking into account some investors are fast becoming jittery on rising COVID-19 caseloads globally.
  • At press time, the U.S. Dollar Index that tracks the greenback against a basket of major currencies ticked up by 0.20% to 90.555

At the time of drafting this report, about $70 billion in value was virtually wiped out, taking into account the flagship crypto, Bitcoin, the dominant player in the crypto market, lost as much as $2,000, according to data retrieved from Coin360.

  • The total crypto market volume over the last 24 hours is $131.42 billion, which amounts to a 2.07% increase.
  • The total volume in DeFi is currently $15.68 billion, 11.93% of the total crypto market 24-hour volume.
  • The volume of all stable coins is now $105.17 Billion, which is 80.03% of the total crypto market 24-hour volume.
    Bitcoin’s price is currently $31,398.04.
  • Bitcoin’s dominance is currently 62.74%, a decrease of 0.01% over the day.

Other leading crypto assets including Ethereum, Cardano, Litcoin, Chainlink, Polkadot, and Stellar lost more than 8% in value.

Crypto experts interviewed by Nairametrics are saying that a market correction was long overdue after the overextended bullish move.

The bearish trend prevailing at the bitcoin market is largely attributed to a significant amount of profit-taking in play, coupled with the strong rebound in the U.S dollar

Present day cryptos won’t last long – Bank of England

The most powerful British monetary policymaker, is not of the bias that the current generation of digital assets has the structure needed to ensure long-term regulatory survival

The most powerful British monetary policymaker, Andrew Bailey, is not of the bias that the current generation of digital assets has the structure needed to ensure long-term regulatory survival.

Speaking during the World Economic Forum yesterday on “Resetting Digital Currencies” the Bank of England governor reacted to a question on whether crypto is here to stay for the long term with skepticism:

Are cryptocurrencies here to stay? Digital innovation in payments – yes. Have we landed on what I would call the design, governance, and arrangements for a lasting digital currency? No, I don’t think we’re there yet […] I don’t think cryptocurrencies as originally formulated are it.”

In a report credited to This is Money, a British-based financial newspaper, Andrew Bailey said that crypto-currencies in their current state were not likely to be the final settling point, as consumers, businesses, and regulators would look for digital currencies that are stable, safe, and well-designed before fully shifting away from traditional currencies like the pound and dollar.

What you should know: At the time of drafting this report, the crypto market was valued at $955 billion, a 2.23% drop over the last day.

  • The total crypto market volume for the day stood at $128 billion, which makes a 2.15% increase.

  • The volume of all stable coins is now $101.61 billion, which is 79.15% of the total crypto market 24-hour volume.
  • Bitcoin’s price is currently $32,164.91.
  • Bitcoin’s dominance is currently 62.86%, an increase of 0.65% over the day.
