Bitcoin Whale Sends $2 Billion, Joining Large Transactions in the past 24 Hours

One of the biggest BTC addresses recently transferred approximately 45,000 bitcoins to 2 unknown wallets. When BTCUSD price is on the rise large transfers are often seen.

Today’s BTC transfer is certainly among the biggest. 45,000 bitcoins in today’s markets price are worth over $2 billion. Whale transfers are not rare but they do grab the market’s attention.

The transaction is well-documented in the blockchain due its transparent nature.

Over the past 24 hours there were several large BTC transactions. The transfers appear to be in tandem with BTCUSD recent rally in the market.

Bitcoin whales’ activity are automatically tracked by some websites. The crypto whales are fully aware of it. Some intentionally break the transactions into small parts in order to avoid detection.

Recently we have also seen approximately $64,000,000 transferred out of Gemini. Some do suggest that when a large of amount of bitcoins are transferred out of the    exchange  it may lift BTC price higher.

When the bitcoins are out of the exchange, it reduces the risk of the owner selling bitcoins in the exchange. As the bearish ‘threat’ has been ‘eliminated,’ it may have a positive impact on the cryptocurrency.

It is challenging to say that the gigantic transfer is the reason for the recent rally in the crypto markets. Some however suggest that Canada’s recent actions may have contributed to bitcoin and other cryptos such as Shiba Inu.

Did Canada Contribute to BTC Rally?

Canada’s PM, Justin Trudeau invoked the 1988 Emergency Act for the first time. It provides the government with additional powers in an event of a national crisis such as espionage.

The government can put travel bans on certain areas, order an evacuation from certain regions and even instruct companies to provide their services to the government.

The act was invoked in response to the protests that are ongoing in Canada. The protests began as response to government’s covid-19 mandates. Canadian truckers that enter the US at the border without being fully vaccinated must quarantine themselves at home for 14 days upon their return.

The rule came into effect on 22 January and has caused severe protests in Canada.

As part of the new powers following the Emergency Act, banks can freeze or suspend accounts without the requirement of a court order. The threat is aimed the protesters that are crippling the border with the United States.

Aside the above, the government has also expanded Canada’s anti-money laundering and counter-terrorism measures. This was done to prevent crowfunding websites that the protestors use to raise capital for their cause.

Over $800,000 worth of bitcoins were donated to the truckers’ cause. The fact the Canadian government treats    bitcoin  as money in new measures, some view it as a form of acceptance that bitcoin is to be seen as a currency rather than a digital asset.

Russia Calmed the Markets

As there is some correlation between bitcoin and US markets such as S&P 500, it is possible the recent gains are due to the news Russia has withdrew some of its troops from its borders.

It reduces the odds for a war to breakout between Russia and Ukraine. The markets are relieved and risk appetite returns.
