One of the largest Bitcoin whales outside of exchanges has decided to liquidate 15,500 BTC for $350 million.

It appears that crypto whales are back in activity. According to the latest disclosure, one BTC whale has sold off a huge chunk of its crypto stash. Details of the transaction and the balances can be shown in the image.

The whale made five transactions to sell 15K above BTC. Seling 500 BTC in the first transaction, 2500 BTC in the second and third, and 5000 BTC in the fourth and fifth transaction. The said the crypto whale is said to be the largest BTC holder who doesn’t store their stash on exchanges, meaning that they exercise direct or self-custody of their stash.

This latest move by a large Bitcoin whale to liquidate a part of their holdings has the community trying to figure out the motivation behind the decision and whether the move could impact the market in the short term. First off, the crypto market, including Bitcoin, has had a rough time since the start of 2022. There has been a significant price reduction, and the whale’s move leaves BTC enthusiasts with questions on whether the whale’s sale is running a loss or a profit.

That said, it’s possible that the whale may have been one of the early adopters of Bitcoin or may have acquired their stash at a much lower price some time back. On the other hand, they may have liquidated part of their stash to generate capital for other offline investments. In that case, the sale may not be motivated by market projects for future BTC price points.
