Crypto analyst and trader Ali Martinez has taken to Twitter to share some positive news about the Bitcoin network as it continues to expand.

He believes that this could be a big potential impulse for Bitcoin's price growth.

Half billion new wallets set up

A tweet published by Martinez says that the number of new Bitcoin wallets that has recently emerged on the network has hit around 512,000. The expert also shared a screenshot from Glassnode to illustrate this.

He commented that this growth means a higher user adoption of BTC and, therefore, this indicates a potential price increase coming, since this is a sign of higher demand for the flagship cryptocurrency: "high demand = heightened price potential."

Whale sells 11,000 BTC as price surges

According to a tweet by "Smart Money" tracker @lookonchain, yesterday, a whale sold a massive amount of Bitcoin right after the price of BTC topped the $30,000 level.

Initially (the exact date was not provided by the source), this whale bought 46,542 Bitcoins (worth almost one billion USD) on Bitfinex. He bought that at an average price of $20,083. Later, he sold 36,500 BTC from that stash on the same exchange at $28,039.

An hour before the tweet's release, this "smart whale" sent 11,000 Bitcoins to Bitfinex and sold that for $330 million after Bitcoin surged above the $30,000 level for the first time in 10 months. The price growth happened on the back of the news about the CPI value that was released on April 13, dropping to 5% versus 5.2% expected by analysts.
