Data from Blockchain.com reveals that just over 22,000 BTC was recently moved in one transaction. The payment went to a wallet connected with the Bitfinex exchange.
At current market prices, the 22,000 BTC migrated is worth around $138 million. This is likely the project of a Bitcoin fish, and it could probably have a massive impact on the crypto market one way or different.
The evolution of this massive amount of Bitcoin also corresponded about with BTC's recent $10 billion drops in market cap, which followed in the wake of yesterday's major stock market dive.
Columnists on Twitter had differing ideas on what this could mean for crypto, as well as obtaining some points compared to the size of the transaction.
Not exactly sure if this was sell off as 22k $BTC is huge and current drop is nothing compared to that volume,
