A little over a month ago there was a sell order worth 3,645 BTC on Bitstamp worth $26 million at that time. As a result, Bitcoin’s price dropped from $7,749 to $7,179 in less than 30 minutes, with Bitcoin’s 24-hour decline being 8.7%. According to Bitstamp’s price chart, a low of around $6,000 was recorded, which triggered a massive sell-off on all other exchanges. Bitcoin managed to recover from the drop. Currently, Bitcoin is trading at its highest levels since January 2018.
