According to Whale Alert, the tracker of large cryptocurrency transactions from and to exchanges, a crypto whale has some hours ago moved 121,252 ETH worth $25,680,152, from an unknown wallet to another.
The movement of funds by cryptocurrency whales has been significant over the years, due to the impact of their activity on the prices of digital currencies in the market.
There are instances, whereby, some of the crypto whales use their influence to manipulate the price of cryptocurrencies to their advantage, due to their rather unnecessary movement of funds, leaving retail investors at a dead end.
So, each of their action calls the attention of the crypto community members, prompting them to check the price status of their choice digital currencies whenever a huge movement of funds is detected. In such scenarios, the transfers could be favorable or unfavorable for the majority.

If you are wondering why Justin would want this publicized in China, many people will misinterpret this as some kind of implicit endorsement of Tron from the United States government. From standpoint of completely unethical grifter, a savvy move. https://t.co/zIIc3i2B70

Moreover, the fact that the huge transaction is from an unknown wallet to another minimizes its chance of negatively impacting the price of ETH. It would have been unfavorable if such a huge amount was moved from an unknown wallet to an exchange.
