Exactly how many whales are there?

Over the past day, over $166,000 worth of Bitcoins have reportedly been moved from cryptocurrency exchanges to a number of untraceable wallets, as reported by Whale Alert. Totaling more than $3.12 billion, the sum of all the documented deals is substantial.

Most Bitcoin transfer reports involve amounts greater than 9,500 BTC. However, the Huobi Crypto exchange is where the vast bulk of whale trades originate. Simultaneously, a purchase totaling 4,131 BTC was made on the Coinbase cryptocurrency exchange.

However, in the last two hours, approximately 43,000 Bitcoins have reportedly migrated from the Huobi wallet to Binance, as reported by Wu Blockchain. The overall sum of the cash outflow is estimated to be around $820 million.
