Moreover, a crypto speculator Joseph Young stated that the person or group behind this transaction has close bonds with the creator of Bitcoin, Satoshi Nakamoto.

Besides this, Luke Martin from Venture Coinist believes this is due to the sudden fall in the price of Bitcoin.

Transactions from major exchanges

In the race of tweets, the CEO of Blockstream Adam Back stated that the traders should relax.  He added if Satoshi was selling coins, then it is a possibility that he would sell his most recent mined coins. As per him, the owner of the anonymous wallet is maybe an early miner.

The official account of Whale Alert on Twitter has exposed many large transactions extending from 145 BTC to 5,000 BTC. Also, it stated, 5,000 BTC, transferred to an anonymous wallet from Bitfinex exchange.

Additionally, a significant amount of BTC, transferred from OKEx. Also, again 3,164 BTC, transferred from the OKEx to an anonymous wallet.

As per CoinMarketCap, the current price of BTC is $9,503.21 with a drop of 2.46% at the time of writing this article.

Thus, it can be assumed that whoever is moving Bitcoin to anonymous wallets certainly has some very strong hands.
