Hacker Transfers $30 Million in Bitcoin, Will There Be Another Price Drop?

News of Stolen Bitcoin Movement Sparks Frenzy in Crypto Market

The crypto market was sent into a frenzy once again as news broke of a significant movement of stolen Bitcoin (BTC). On Thursday, June 27, a hacker linked to the recent DMM Bitcoin breach transferred 500 BTC, valued at approximately $30 million. This raised concerns of a potential market dump, especially in light of recent large-scale sell-offs by government entities and miners.

The hacker’s transfer of stolen funds from the DMM Bitcoin breach sparked speculations of a market dump amid Bitcoin price volatility. However, on-chain transactions currently do not suggest a dump of the stolen BTC reserve from a crypto exchange.

Earlier this month, DMM Bitcoin, one of Japan’s largest cryptocurrency exchanges, reported a security breach resulting in the theft of 4,502.9 BTC, worth over $300 million at the time. The exchange took swift action to prevent further unauthorized access, including suspending new account openings and crypto asset withdrawals.

In response to the breach, Japan’s Financial Services Agency mandated DMM Bitcoin to investigate thoroughly and implement measures to safeguard customers. The exchange assured customers that their BTC deposits would be covered and apologized for any inconvenience caused.

Meanwhile, the broader Bitcoin market has seen significant sell-offs, with the German and U.S. governments liquidating their BTC holdings. Bitcoin miners and whales have also been offloading their holdings, contributing to market volatility.

As Bitcoin hovers just above the critical $60,000 support level, market indecisiveness between bullish and bearish sentiments is evident. Short liquidations have exceeded longs, but traders are expected to buy back their BTC positions to limit losses, potentially catalyzing a rebound.

With market volatility and extensive sell-offs impacting Bitcoin’s price, the crypto community remains on edge as they monitor the situation closely.
