Mt. Gox Trustee Liquidates Mammoth-Size Amount of Bitcoin

Nobuaki Kobayashi, Japanese lawyer who acts like Mt. Gox’s bankruptcy trustee, has recently dumped around $230 mln worth of Bitcoin (BTC) and Bitcoin Cash (BCH) in the market, according to a recent Bloomberg report. Kobayashi, also dubbed “Tokyo whale,” has the crypto community waiting for his next move with bated breath because of the enormous amount of coins that he controls.
