Bitcoin (BTC) Whales Tracking, the most interesting thing that you can do easily with ClankApp.
ClankApp is a service for tracking crypto-whales on 20+ blockchains in real time. We strongly believe in the adoption of blockchain and we believe that transparency is essential for this purpose. Last year, with have analysed about 400,000 new transaction with a value greater than $1,000,000 (255,000 transactions just for Bitcoin (BTC)).
What is a whale ?
In the cryptosphere, a whale is an entity that controls enough of Bitcoin (BTC) or an other asset to be able to impact the global price of this asset. On ClankApp, we only index transactions with a value greater than $1,000,000 dollars in order to catch the principal whales in our system.
Let's take this transaction for the example :
As you can see, someone just move 48,500 Bitcoin (BTC) which represents $ 886,945,000 (in december 2017), from 1NGXFZL4NrQZUW83JibY2K2KvamGGTu62j address to 1Jh8THzSSQBZKYg8in5f6Sowsp3gxjjcpC address.
These two addresses have not been identified as belonging to an exchange and they can potentially influence the BTC price.
On a blockchain like Bitcoin, the impact may be insignificant, but on a smaller blockchain like Decred (DCR), it can have an impact.
Biggests Bitcoin transactions
The largest transactions come, in most of the time, from exchanges like Bitfinex or Coinbase and they come from what we call, cold-wallets.
If we take this transaction:
We can see that this is an bittrex internal transaction for their cold wallet with a value of 1.2 billions dollars. This kind of transaction will not impact the Bitcoin price.
