Check Out This Beautiful Bitcoin Whale Sight Seeing Show: $437 Million (113,500 BTC) is On the Move
The cryptocurrency sector has seen quite a few interesting events and updates in recent times.
The sector is currently packed with a lot of activity and all the supporters and cynics of the sector directly add to it. The following are some of the most interesting news in the cryptocurrency sector, beginning with Bitcoin.
In Bitcoin news, a total of 113,000 BTC has now been completely sold by an account largely considered the fourth biggest in the industry. The Bitcoin which is said to have a value of about $435 million was gradually being disposed starting from 2018.
It is reported that the wallet is definitely not a crypto exchange and was sending out the funds to many different wallets, giving each one about 1,000 BTC. Some people are convinced the account did that to stay as unnoticeable as possible. Others think that it sold the funds in very quiet deals.
According to the service:
“In the near future, we will offer native deposit and withdraw support for the other ERC20 tokens currently listed on Abra, in addition to other new tokens that we will now be able to list.“
The SXSW in Austin, Texas will have a major discussion with the Chief Technology Officer (CTO) of Ripple, David Schwartz.

Coinbase Pro, the digital asset exchange firm based in the US, will now incorporate Stellar’s XLM. This new integration will see users do quite a number of transactions within a stipulated limit, temporarily, until unlimited trading options are entirely allowed. Stellar’s XLM is also to be paired with the US Dollar, the Euro and also Bitcoin.
This will be available on Coinbase everywhere, except New York. According to a tweet from Stellar’s official twitter @StellarOrg:
“Coinbase is by far the most reputable exchange in the industry. A listing there is a rite of passage for any project. We think this is a huge step for the Stellar network.”
“I have a very optimistic point of view of both Bitcoin and cryptocurrency. You can see the Lightning Network and also Facebook and JP Morgan are issuing stablecoins on the blockchain, so I think everything is very promising right now…
I think the valuation and the market cap is just the surface of the business. Primarily, I’m more focused on the business development, technology and lots of the exciting things happening on Tron now.”
Charles Hoskinson, the CEO of Cardono has said that the firm’s Shelley testnet will officially kick off sometime this month.
