At the time this report was written, Bitcoin traded at $11,508.92 with a daily trading volume of $20 billion. BTC price is up 0.9% in the last 24 hours. It has a circulating supply of 19 million coins and a max supply of 21 million coins.
What you should know
It should be noted that Bitcoin is not really anonymous because all BTC transactions are kept permanently and publicly on the blockchain or ledger system. Hence, it’s very easy for anyone to see the transactions and balances of any BTC address.
What this means
Blockchain security and security agencies have flagged the BTC wallets containing the stolen BTCs, making it very difficult to move the 119,756 BTC without being noticed.
