Market

Several whales have moved huge quantities of Bitcoin from 1,000 coins to the biggest at 3,001 Bitcoin, around $30 million from OKEx to an unknown wallet. A colossal whale moved 216,016 ETH from an unknown wallet to another wallet, worth around $76 million. It’s clear that whales are moving coins around, perhaps getting ready for the crypto market bottom, to buy the dip or for the next leg down. 

Industry

Huobi, one of the biggest exchanges by volume has announced the launch of a new savings product to compete with DeFi yield platforms. To incentivize new users to join the platform, Huobi is giving out accounts with annualized returns of 88% for the first week and will distribute 30,000 USDT among users. 

DCG, a blockchain investment firm has just acquired Luno, a crypto exchange with over 5 million existing customers in around 40 countries.

We have invested in many retail businesses all over the world – including nearly two dozen exchanges, said Mark Murphy, DCG’s chief operating officer. But this is the first subsidiary that is a wallet and an exchange, which of course have large numbers of retail investors.
