Within the last week, bitcoin has seen strong upward price movement, rising by 19 percent. However, much of that increase was within the last hour, with a massive amount of purchasing activity pushing the price of BTC from $4,190 to $5,000 on Coinbase Pro, a 19 percent jump.

Within the last hour, several large green candles have pushed the price of bitcoin from $4,190 to $5,000. The source of the large purchases is unknown, though it is likely from one, or several, whales—spurring the rest of the market into action.
