Before we conclude, this week’s “Bitcoin quick question” is what is a Bitcoin whale?

The term Bitcoin whale refers to players that hold large amounts of Bitcoin under their control.  Whales can have a major effect on the market if they decide to dump their coins, also known as a “bear whale”.  Whales are often considered the source behind market volatility and they are sometimes criticized for manipulating the price of a certain coin in order to, later on, sell it higher or buy it cheap. Known Bitcoin whales include Satoshi Nakamoto, the creator of Bitcoin, The Winkelvoss twins, Tim Draper, Barry Silbert, the US government, (This is because it seizes large amounts of Bitcoin from illegal activity) and several Bitcoin related investment firms.

That’s what’s happened this week in Bitcoin. See you next week!
