Large crypto holders are moving massive amounts of Bitcoin amid the market downturn.
A total of $1.45 billion has been transferred in just 24-hours, according to blockchain tracker Whale Alert.
The biggest movement sent 13,071 BTC worth $673.8 million in a single transaction. The giant Bitcoin holder in question moved the flagship crypto-asset between two unknown wallets.
This suggests the movement could have been an over-the-counter trade, or an entity moving crypto around for security purposes.
