    Bitcoin price fell due to the Plus Token scam that discharged 13k BTC, not the corona virus

    When the BTC / USD pair failed to hold on to the $ 8,000 support on March 9, analysts were speculating the sharp collapse was due to the Plus Token scam that carried out a massive sell-off.

    According to online commentators citing data from blockchain, the people behind the infamous $ 2.9 billion Ponzi model have once again tried to sell their BTC.

    Transferring BTC to the scrambling device means “discharging”

    Ergo – A Twitter account, which closely monitors PlusToken's activities, discovered a total of 13,000 BTC or about $ 210 million moved from the Ponzi project's wallet.

    This time, Ergo said, the coins were transferred to coin shakers to hide the source of the transaction. Two wallet addresses are determined moved BTC on March 5.

    “Having watched and hypothesized about this for months, I don't believe these coins have been sold, at least to some extent,” he wrote on Twitter.

    “This could be obvious for exchanges starting in September. The accounts were frozen after that.”

    However, he added that the sell-offs are currently taking place at a “much slower pace” than around August of last year – a time during which the discharge activity is much stronger.
