Who is behind this Transfer? BitMEX traders or PlusToken scammers
It has not been yet known who is responsible for this transfer however there are two suspects who might be behind it either BitMEX traders or PlusToken scammers.
It is being expected that these funds may have come from the BitMEX traders. The reason might be the sell-liquidations that occurred on the BitMEX trading platform because of the recent price drop. Around 90% of all derivative contracts had been closed on Thursday following the forced liquidations of the long contracts.
PlusToken scammers can also be suspected for this large transfer because they have not yet moved their fraudulent Bitcoins from last week and therefore, it is likely that they may have made a transfer to Bitstamp exchange to dump their bitcoins.
Is Bitcoin Price going to dump again?
Whenever funds get moved from an unknown wallet to a major crypto exchange, it means that something bad is going to happen which worries people. It is not yet revealed what is the intention behind this transfer however it is expected that these 2000 Bitcoins worth $10 million can be sold on the market. This will accelerate the bearish trend.
