While the precise reason behind the transaction is still unknown, a few possibilities could be plausible. It’s possible that a whale, or significant BCH holder, chose to transfer their money to another wallet.

The transaction could also be an over-the-counter, or OTC, transaction that takes place outside of a cryptocurrency exchange. Furthermore, a whale might have moved their money before the eagerly awaited Bitcoin halving.

Whatever the reason behind the transaction, it has caught the attention of the crypto community with many wondering about the potential impact on the price of the token.
