Bitcoin Price Above $10K Sees ‘Strange’ Premium After $1M BTC Buys

A frenzied period for major exchanges produces unusual phenomena and huge volumes, while Coinbase bows out.

Bitcoin (BTC) hitting $10,000 has been frantic activity on exchanges — investors are buying the largest cryptocurrency at five figures, not selling.

According to data from monitoring resource Coin Metrics on June 2, one 10-minute period alone saw trading volume hit a giant 3,500 BTC.

As markets climbed to highs of $10,340, exchanges saw a sudden surge of interest, with Bitfinex specifically producing what Coin Metrics described as “very strange” behavior.

“#Bitcoin prices on Bitfinex just did something very strange and are now trading at a $40 premium to the rest of the market,” the company tweeted.
