One of the largest financial transactions with cryptocurrency took place in the Bitcoin peer-to-peer payment network (BTC). 10,250 BTC were transferred from one wallet to another, which at the current rate was
the amount of $ 95 million. The commission for this operation was only $ 0.74.
The Bitcoin transfer was discovered by the Bitcoin Block Bot automatic tracker, which tracks large BTC transactions. According to the news resource block-chain24, the operation was carried out by one of the most
rich bitcoin whales. For example, according to the BitInfoCharts website, which is referenced by the media, before this transaction, this sender was ranked 43rd in the ranking by the number of coins of this
cryptocurrencies, and the sending wallet contained 16662 BTC. This wallet has a history of sending and receiving large amounts of bitcoins that can be tracked back on April 18th.
The address to which the coins were received is anonymous. But interestingly, according to the latest block explorer data, each of the three previous transactions with this unknown wallet was evaluated
in the order of only $ 10 or less.
According to crypto insiders, bitcoins were not sent to any well-known crypto exchange where they could go on sale on the free market. In view of this, it is possible, experts believe that
the sender of the transfer could be one of the first to start trading bitcoins arbitrarily, or move their cryptocurrency through multiple wallets for security purposes. Also remains
the likelihood that a cryptocurrency exchange, a deposit provider, or an institution managing digital assets on behalf of its customers is behind this transaction.
