Bitcoin whale shifts $ 1 billion in BTC

One particular user posted a massive transaction amounting to 124946,622 BTC, which represents 0.7% of all the bitcoins extracted so far. At the current BTC price of $ 8,700, this means that the total transaction value exceeds $ 1.08 billion. Bitcoins were sent from a Bitfinex address, but the recipient is still unknown. Interestingly, such a large part was transferred from one address to another for a fee of only 0.00964 BTC, which is about $ 84. This can prove Bitcoin’s full potential as an equivalent peer-to-peer electronic money system, since no state or other regulatory authority was involved in the transaction.
