Lol there was one order of 0.2BTC; that’s barely being bought. I also said I would buy the entire thing if I had the money, so it’s not surprising that someone bought some of it. It’s more surprising that it took this long for someone to nibble at it.
I was a super active/wary on-the-pulse day trader for like a year (gained thousands, lost thousands), I don’t need lecturing. I know markets are unpredictable. Whales put walls up all the time, and in cases like this it usually takes a long time for anything to happen to it, if anything does at all. (And again, this price seems kind of low, so I feel like the whale is taking a risk by placing that wall. Or it could be that he wants to sell all of that, though that’s more unorthodox than other strategies usually utilized).
edit: Oh yeah also wanted to make the point clear that whales also are full aware that markets are unpredictable, and that their walls could be gone at any time, since they know they’re not the truly almighty beings that many think of them.
