    The substantial movement of funds introduces an interesting aspect to the market. Deciding to use or move dormant coins is often complex and depends on individual circumstances and various factors.
    For instance, a significant increase in Bitcoin’s value might lead owners to sell or trade their inactive assets to capitalize on profit opportunities.
    Amidst market recovery, 2023 witnessed a flurry of mysterious wallet movements from previously dormant whales.
    Earlier this month, three Bitcoin whale addresses recently moved a total of 6,500 Bitcoins to new wallets, with a combined value of around $230 million.
    On September 19th, a dormant Bitcoin address transferred over $46 million worth of crypto after six years, sparking concerns of intense sell pressure in the market.
    Another whale inactive for more than a decade woke up from its slumber in July to transfer $31 million in BTC.
