Bitcoin price hits $69k for a brief period of time
On Wednesday, 10th November, the price of everyone’s loved Bitcoin (BTC) reached a new all-time high of $69,000. Trades began to exit the market shortly after reaching this new milestone, causing the price of bitcoin to plummet by about $7,000 and bring it below $63,000. Though it didn’t last long, the ATH gave BTC enthusiasts a lot to cheer about.
The present downward movement is certain to surprise some investors, but minor corrections following the achievement of new all-time highs are standard procedures for Bitcoin.

This whale activity is identical to the dormant address change that occurred in May 2021 with a wallet from the same year. The activity from bitcoins gained in 2013 saw re-distribution transfer at the time.
