Bitcoin price crash came from 1 Whale’s movement?

The probable reason for BTC price crash could be the wallet of Plus Token scam, which is once again observed selling its haul via Huobi. For a couple of months, the scale and size of the scheme became well-known as one of its main wallets contained 38,000 BTC.

This Plus Token Scam was not known until Q2 of 2019, as it was being spread mainly via Chinese channels. The scam took away BTC worth $2.9 billion.

Up till now, Plus Tokens wallets were only sending regular transactions ranging from 600-1000 BTC daily, gradually liquidating haul, but as soon as a BTC moved in a bearish setup, the selling speed up. As per the reports, Plus Token has accumulated 200,000 BTC and around 800,000 ETH.

The decision of selling comes at the time when the Chinese authorities became aggressive towards the cryptocurrency projects and the attempts of selling the tokens.

The People’s Bank of China has also made announcements and stated that they would crackdown on the cryptocurrency exchanges and also outlined the sale projects of tokens pushing their products violently.

The present correction could be because of the over-reaction, which ended up pushing Chinese enthusiasm for BTC on top.
