Confirming the amount of BTC funds the scam controls might give an idea of how many Bitcoin the PlusToken crew could dump on the open crypto markets, possibly accounting for past and future price action.
The analyst noted 200,000 BTC as the commonly stated amount the alleged scam might have originally controlled, citing three specific wallet addresses thought to be part of the operation. "My current totals are around 187,000 BTC. This analysis is not complete yet, but roughly confirms the previous 200,000 BTC estimates." "Assuming all of the mixed coins accounted for so far have been sold over a period from early August through today will give an average of around 1,300 BTC sold per day," the analyst said.
"Going forward we can use the daily sell estimates and the ~58,000 BTC unmixed total to estimate the duration of the remaining selling at between 1.5 and 2 months..
