The intelligence agency said it observed nearly 50,000 bitcoins worth $2.7 billion under Mt. Gox’s control being moved to a different wallet in what could be a sign that the cryptocurrency could soon be distributed to creditors.

“If an additional 200,000 bitcoins — worth over $10 billion — enter the markets in a short period of time, supply is likely to outpace demand, and we could see the price of bitcoin fall further,” Neil Rorty, an analyst at investment platform Stocklytics, said in emailed comments.

In late June, the trustees of the Mt. Gox exchange announced that the exchange, which collapsed a decade ago, would begin distributing nearly $10 billion in bitcoin, bitcoin cash and fiat currency to its creditors in early July.

Update 07/06: Bitcoin’s price crash has found a floor, with the broader crypto market rebounding slightly after this week’s sharp sell-off.

However, traders and analysts still fear that a Bitcoin price collapse could drag down Ethereum, XRP, Solana, and other major cryptocurrencies.

The widely-watched Cryptocurrency Fear and Greed Index, created by data site Alternative.me, has fallen to its lowest level since January 2023, after Bitcoin fell to just $17,000 in the wake of the collapse of crypto exchange FTX, and is now teetering on the edge of “extreme fear.”

“The direction of Bitcoin in the coming days will be determined by selling pressure from Mt. Gox users,” Rachel Lin, CEO of decentralized exchange SenFutures, said in emailed comments.

“The market is expecting most Mt. Gox users to dump their tokens, but we could see a rebound if sales are lower than expected. On the other hand, if there is enough selling to push the price lower, we could be looking at $50,000 soon.”

Lin warned that the “critical levels” for Bitcoin and Ethereum were $60,000 and $3,350 respectively — both of which have now been “decisively” broken.

“As expected, Bitcoin’s decline has dragged down all other assets,” Lin said. “Ethereum
