Crypto Whale Moves 8,884 Bitcoin to Coinbase As BTC Breaks Resistance – Plus Ethereum, Ripple and XRP, Litecoin, Stellar

From trepidation over a big Bitcoin transfer to the expansion of Grayscale Ethereum Trust, here’s a look at some of the stories breaking in the world of crypto.

Bitcoin

Crypto whale watchers are setting their sights on a huge Bitcoin transfer from an unknown wallet to the crypto exchange Coinbase.

The whale moved 8,884 BTC worth about $101.5 million, leading traders to wonder if the holder in question plans to sell some of their holdings on the open market. But so far since the transfer, the price of BTC has continued to rise to a 2019 high of about $12,255 at time of writing, indicating the fears may be unwarranted.

On June 4th, a crypto whale was blamed for triggering a market sell-off after moving 25,160 BTC to Coinbase just before the price of BTC dropped.

In the last 24 hours, whales have moved a total of 32,006 Bitcoin worth roughly $364 million at time of transfer, with 11,041 BTC sent from unknown wallets to crypto exchanges.
