Bears Pulling Bitcoin Down

Given to the abrupt behaviour of the market value of BTC, the last two transactions on the network seem to be nothing but the transfer from the 28 inputs to the single address ‘3CU4AYJH23ePNnKsycinP5TSogCNGsyqCc’ might be considered the possible reason for Bitcoin’s’ behaviour, the transfer might have occurred to the Coinbase profile wallet.

The Bitcoin transferred to the Coinbase address were untouched or unmoved since the last ten years, and the BTC obtained was through mining previously ten years ago. The series of transactions that occurred were done by a single user who had kept the Bitcoin in a single wallet without any movement. This was the time exactly when the market value of Bitcoin plummeted from $8000 to $7500 in just hours. A noted Bitcoin wallet address bearing series ‘1MPbs4TYnHMbfAKqGmW6CVeoJGX44cMiDG’ stood out as it received 200 Bitcoins from the total of 1000 Bitcoins which might showcase that it might belong to Coinbase.

Bitcoin Whales Crashing the Market

The Bitcoin assets which have not been moved from a long time do not be necessarily lost or is out of the transaction. It is difficult to prove whether the Bitcoins’ large movement has influenced the market value. Though no certain reason behind the crash is concluded, this activity can only be considered as a possible reason as to why the huge fluctuations occur and Bitcoin’s sensitivity being unstable.
