In the comments thread, the crypto community is discussing a chance the transactions were made by a crypto whale who is preparing to dump part of this Bitcoin on the market via Bittrex.

Some crypto traders are expecting that the Bitcoin price is likely to surpass the $10,000 level soon and continue on its journey towards regaining the $20,000-ish all-time high achieved in December 2017.
