14.6K BTC Withdrawn From Coinbase in 1 Hr, Gemini Launches Frontier Fund for Crypto Startups

Bitcoin whales have continued accumulating more BTC even when a market correction of nearly $5K created a lot of noise about the further downside. Large Bitcoin whales have continued buying the dip throughout this bull run despite major corrections in the tune of 20% in the past couple of months. The transaction value of the said transfer was well over $1 billion, giving rise to speculation about another possible institutional purchase.

Bitcoin in this bull cycle has observed 5 major dips ranging from 10% to 26%, while analysts believe a drop higher than 30% along with several other factors like rising exchange inflow of BTC and large sell orders by whales would indicate a possible top for Bitcoin. However, as of now, the bull cycle has a lot of steam left and would continue for another leg with a few minor corrections in between.

Coinbase has facilitated many Institutional bitcoin purchases this year including Tesla’s $1.5 billion buy, thus a large BTC outflow of nearly 15K could have come from another publically traded company adding bitcoin to their balance sheet.
