Ongoing BTC sell-off

This ongoing distribution of the 6,000 BTC follows the outflow of 3,100 BTC worth $178 million (at the time) on July 9. 

Incidentally, the address also withdrew 1,700 BTC worth $91.78 million from Bitstamp, recouping its BTC holdings and indicating the inability to off-load them on the exchange. 

On July 9, the holdings stood at around 26,000 BTC, worth roughly $1.5 billion with an linked address used to off-load the funds holding 4,800 BTC 

As of July 10, the current holdings of the wallet are only around 18,110 BTC, now worth $1.06 billion — down over $400 million since July 9.

This is a developing story, and further information will be added as it becomes available.
