It seems like yet another whale in the cryptocurrency market is again flaunting his or her money. A recent massive transfer was picked up by Whale Alert (@whale_alert) which notified the rest of the cryptocurrency community that 3,000 BTC ($25M) was being moved from Binance to Gemini.

There are a few possible catalysts for such a major move, but it seems most likely that someone is cashing out some BTC on Gemini through an OTC sale. Interestingly enough, the move came just a few hours after Bitcoin rebounded from the $8,280 price point to $8,380 or so.

Major whales have been making moves in the past few days. As BeInCrypto has reported on this past week, just two days ago one whale moved 1,000 BTC to an external wallet presumably to HODL. Another whale yesterday moved 650 BTC ($5.3M) from Coinbase to an external wallet as well, another indication that accumulation is happening behind the scenes. This uptick in high-value transfers to external wallets indicates that something may be brewing in the background.

However, this particular transfer of 3,000 BTC does not appear to be a whale interested in HODL’ing. Instead, this is transfer is likely for a possible sale or, at the very best, purchasing of altcoins on Gemini. The market has not responded to this transfer, but this is just one piece of the puzzle.

Recently, the market has been quiet, but the odd increase in high-value transfers makes one wonder — could we see a major move for Bitcoin in the coming weeks? Maybe the whales are giving us a hint.
