Around 44 consecutive Bitcoin transfers were spotted by Whale Alert, each of them carrying between 9,000 and 9,900 BTC on average.
According to the analytics data, these transactions were made between anonymous wallets, which could stand either for crypto whales or cryptocurrency exchanges. The largest transaction carried a lump of over 10,000 BTC.
The total amount of crypto moved by anon wallets totals $17,342,379,600 in fiat.
Almost 60,000 BTC moved with participation of Coinbase
Besides, five transactions were made with the participation of major U.S.-based crypto exchange Coinbase, which went public in April of this year via a direct listing on the Nasdaq.
