This Sunday, September 2nd, a large shipment of Tether (USDT) was sent to a cryptocurrency exchange called Bitfinex, as reported by Crypto Trader’s host, Ran NeuNer. Many are expecting a large price surge from Bitcoin (BTC) since moves like this in the past usually indicated that Bitcoin’s value is going to skyrocket.
New BTC price surge about to arrive fro Tether?
It would seem that a large change in the crypto market is coming, which is just what the investors have been waiting for. According to a recent tweet posted by ran NeuNer, Crypto Trader’s host, around $100 million new Tether (USDT) coins were sent to Bitfinex only days ago.

In the past, whenever something like this happened, it usually meant that Bitcoin’s own price is about to go through the roof. Tether movement has always been one of the biggest indicators that something big is about to happen, and investors around the world are jumping on an opportunity to make a profit.
When stablecoins like Tether are shipped off to an exchange, it usually means that a whole lot of BTC is about to be purchased. This has happened on a few occasions in the last few months — on July 24th and August 21st of this year. Both times, the move was followed by a significant price surge, with BTC rising by $800 in July and $650 in August. Of course, the market usually turned around pretty quickly, still being in the claws of the bears at the time. However, the situation might be different this time.
Can the signs be trusted?
Of course, everyone understands that this is no guarantee that BTC will actually rise, as nothing is ever certain when cryptos are involved. However, the investors have been looking for a sign of a big bull run for months now, and this is as close as they will ever get to receiving one. At the time of writing, Bitcoin’s price is at $7,297.07, and it moved up by only 0.71% in the last 24 hours.
Watch out, maybe something gonna happens. https://t.co/DTrGaXQn51

Still, it would seem that the investors are making their own preparations, with a number of short positions on Bitfinex experiencing a rise on its own in the last few days.
In fact, one of the largest ones was a 10,000 BTC short position, which has surprised even the most experienced investors.

This was followed by $100 million Tether moving to Bitfinex, and the two were quickly tied together by investors, which started speculating about what is coming. Different analysis’ of these events popped up all over Twitter, but one of the Placeholder Management’s partners, Chris Burniske, might have presented the situation the best, in a series of tweets.
Burniske explained that the increase in the number of short positions might be good or bad, depending on the viewpoint. From the momentum perspective, such increase can mark a really good time to pile on. However, a contrarian perspective says that a lot of short positions might serve as so-called “rocket fuel to the upside”, in case that the short positions are simply wrong.

In addition to the large user base and deep liquidity, Wisebitcoin also stands out by offering up to 100x leverage to margin traders, with the ability to open a long or short position in their futures market. In the current bullish environment, leverage is a key way that experienced traders increase their exposure and try to profit from volatility.
For example, if a user opened a long position on ETH on January 2nd at a price of $750, they could have greatly multiplied their profits with even a small amount of leverage such as 5x as ETH reached over $1,100 within 48 hours. A simple unleveraged position would have netted $350 in profit, but a 5x position would have netted $1,750 and a 100x leveraged position would have netted an incredible $35,000 in profits from an initial investment of just $750.
Beyond leverage, Wisebitcoin additionally offers a simple and…
