The head of Binance, Changpeng Zhao (CZ), has published a tweet with a photo of a TV in the lobby of the company’s headquarters (assumingly) on which you can see the Tron CEO Justin Sun talking to the CNN anchor Julia Chatterly.

Previously, the same TV host had interviewed Brad Garlinghouse from Ripple, last time it was slightly over a week ago.

The news text on the screen says “Tron Founder Wants to Shake Up Content Distribution”. Other details of the interview have not been shared yet. The assumed list of topics for that interview may include the aggressive Tron's expansion in the crypto industry, including the recent acquisitions - DLive and Steemit.

CZ Binance tweets praise to his friend Justin Sun, saying:

“Like or hate the guy, gotta give it to him that he works hard. Try to do the same number of media interviews he does, and you will see.”

Justin Sun responds that it was his first time on CNN. Last year, Sun already had an online interview on CNBC.

Sun also made it into the CNBC headlines in 2019 when he paid $4.5 million to have lunch with the investment guru Warren Buffet. However, the lunch took place only this year.

Julia Chatterley announced the interview with Ripple’s Brad Garlinghouse in advance to the community. However, she did not do so regarding her talk to Justin Sun.

Whales pull all the strings 

While it's tempting to assume that a major whale has decided has reentered the market after BTC's disastrous performance in March, deep-pocketed holders are prone to manipulating prices to make easy money. Hence, traders should be cautious not to appear on the wrong side of another sell-off.    

As reported by U.Today, there was a theory that the massive April 2 pump that kicked off the glorious 2019 rally was orchestrated by one major player who took advantage of low liquidity on numerous exchanges to pump the price. 

Back in June 2019, a savvy Coinbase user sold $213 mln worth of BTC and bought back the whole thing shortly after to earn a whopping $10 mln in practically no time.

A $328 mln Bitcoin transaction  

In the meantime, Whale Alert, the service that tracks large transactions across multiple blockchains, has spotted a mammoth-sized Bitcoin transaction that is worth more than $328 mln. 

However, it appears to be an internal transfer, which means that it will not affect BTC's price action.
