Bitcoin price drop nets Bitfinex “whale” $10 million in five minutesBitcoin’s struggle to maintain $10,000 has been an ongoing theme this week. The world’s biggest cryptocurrency was surging toward $10,500 on Thursday, but faced rejection at this level and dropped suddenly by over $300. It was the second time in a week that BTC had failed to crack this resistance level. Perhaps the biggest drama came late on Saturday night. In the space of about two-and-a-half hours, BTC plunged 3.8% to hit $9,840. As traders tried to understand what caused the shock correction, some suggested Bitcoin whales were at play — and it appears one of them managed to net a profit of $10 million as prices tumbled. Many analysts believed BTC was due to have a correction following its recent (and impressive) multi-week rally. Only two months ago, BTC/USD stood at $6,560.
