A severe market correction coincided with a surge in activity from crypto whales, who moved over half a billion dollars worth of stablecoins in a matter of hours, according to a whale-watching bot.

As Bitcoin started to breach the $50,000 level at around 01:30: UTC on Saturday, hundreds of millions of dollars in crypto began flowing between exchanges and wallets.

Whale Alert flagged one of the largest stablecoin transfers in the past day as a deep-pocketed crypto investor moved $116.68 million worth of Tether (USDT) from global crypto exchange Binance and into a wallet of unknown origins.
