Several hours later, a separate Ethereum whale sent 25,361 ETH worth $40.5 million from an unknown wallet to Coinbase.
This whale essentially drained their Ethereum wallet to zero in the process.
Soon after that, a third Ethereum whale abruptly transferred 15,110 ETH worth $24.3 million transferred from a wallet of unknown origin to Coinbase.
That whale also drained their wallet to zero.
Not to be outdone, a massive Bitcoin whale then emerged, moving 9,475 BTC worth $219.5 million between two unknown wallets.
The BTC does not appear to be headed to any crypto exchanges, where it could potentially be sold on the open market.
Bitcoin is down 0.4% in the last 24 hours, trading at $23,045 at time of publishing. Ethereum is up 0.6% in the last day, at $1,598.
