Willy Wu attributed the sharp fall on April 18 to a sudden drop in alert caused by a power outage in China’s Xinjiang region. He referred to the transfer of 9,000 bitcoins from the Bainance exchange on April 27 and speculated that the bitcoins were transferred by a whale that was already aware of the incident.

Wu has found that whales with a long-term investment approach that rarely sell bitcoins have made heavy purchases during the downturn.
