Bitcoin in the news
According to the latest notes coming from CoinDesk, it seems that the U.S. authorities transferred $1 billion worth of bitcoin (BTC) recovered from a dark web hack to new wallet addresses, including one owned by Coinbase, on Wednesday, stoking investor fears that intense sell pressures could drive down the token’s price.
“Authorities moved the bitcoin in three transactions, according to data from blockchain security firm PeckShield. Nearly 10,000 bitcoin were sent to Coinbase-controlled wallets, while roughly $41,000 tokens were directed to government-controlled wallets,” the sane online publication noted so far.

They also made sure to tell their readers the fact that although concerns about the tokens’ sale on the open market may be overblown, fears that bitcoin prices could take a hit are not entirely unjustified, says Conor Ryder, a researcher at crypto markets analysis firm Kaiko.
