Bitcoin Whale Moves 2,457 BTC Off Coinbase

By Benzinga Insights

What happened: A Bitcoin (CRYPTO: BTC) whale just sent $74,981,878 worth of Bitcoin off Coinbase.

The BTC address associated with this transaction has been identified as: 1MfKsStngCwHCtcFEtkKqXkL3Q9zmVVHNc.

Why it matters: Bitcoin "Whales" (investors who own $10 million or more in BTC) typically send cryptocurrency from exchanges when planning to hold their investments for an extended period of time. Storing large amounts of money on an exchange presents an additional risk of theft, as exchange wallets are the most sought-after target for cryptocurrency hackers.

The best way to secure Bitcoin is through holding it on a hardware wallet, which can't be done through holding digital assets on an exchange. Hardware wallets store one's private keys in an offline device, making it impossible for funds to be hacked via the internet.

According to Glassnode, only 13.31% of the total supply remains liquid across all centralized exchanges.

The removal of BTC from an exchange reduces potential sell side pressure, allowing the price of Bitcoin to increase more easily.
