Over the past hours, there have been transactions of various crypto assets, ranging from Bitcoin (BTC) to others alike, which has been the usual habit of crypto whales, and what makes cryptocurrency ecosystem unique.
A few hours ago, Whale Alert reported the movement of approximately 241,000 BTC worth $2.2 billion within a short interval, without the need for a bank or third-party’s interference.

Brad Garlinghouse on Ripple Making CNBC’s Disruptor 50 List
The CEO of Ripple, Brad Garlinghouse, has reacted to the list of 50 disruptors released by CNBC, which included the blockchain-based cross-border payment firm, Ripple.
According to Garlinghouse in a recent interview with ‘Fast Money’ host, Mellissa Lee, the word disruption is somewhat overused.
“We are thrilled and honored to be on the Disruptor list. ‘Disruptor,’ particularly in Silicon Valley, can be a word that is kind of overused.”
