Justin Sun Offers to Buy German Government’s Bitcoin to Prevent Market Impact

Justin Sun has offered to purchase the German government’s $2.3 billion Bitcoin holdings off-market to prevent potential negative impacts on the cryptocurrency’s price.

Sun’s Proposal

Tron founder Justin Sun has stepped in to offer his help once again, proposing to buy the German government’s Bitcoin holdings, valued at over $2.3 billion. On July 4, Sun announced via Twitter his intention to purchase Bitcoin (BTC) off-market to avoid disrupting the cryptocurrency’s price.

This isn’t the first time Sun has intervened to stabilize the market. He previously offered support during the FTX crisis.

Background of German Government’s BTC Holdings

The German government’s Bitcoin wallet first attracted attention on June 19 when it transferred 6,500 BTC, valued at over $425 million. This movement raised concerns about a potential market sell-off, which could negatively affect Bitcoin’s price. Arkham Intelligence identified the wallet as belonging to the German Federal Criminal Police Office (BKA), which has been actively transferring Bitcoin since mid-June.

The Bitcoin in question was seized by the BKA in January. The BKA confiscated 50,000 BTC from the operators of the pirate movie website Movie2k.

Responsibility for BTC Sale

The authority responsible for selling the Bitcoin remains unclear. BKA spokeswoman Kristina Sawazki clarified that the criminal unit does not hold the seized Bitcoin. According to Sawazki:

“In principle, the sale or conversion of seized Bitcoins into Euros is the responsibility of the relevant public prosecutor’s office or court. The proceeds of seized assets are paid to the Land Revenue Office of the place where the competent court has its seat, in accordance with Article 60 of the Code of Criminal Procedure. The BKA only preserves crypto-assets seized or confiscated in the course of investigations for the public prosecutor’s offices.”

Recent Transactions and Implications

On July 4, the wallet transferred $172 million worth of Bitcoin to various crypto wallets, including three popular centralized cryptocurrency exchanges (CEXs) — Coinbase, Kraken, and Bitstamp. This transfer suggests the German government might be preparing to sell its Bitcoin. Previously, on July 2, the wallet moved $52 million worth of BTC, including 100 BTC to Coinbase, 150 BTC to Bitstamp, and 32.74 BTC to Kraken.

The continuous selling of Bitcoin by the German government-labeled wallet has been a hot topic among traders. Sun’s offer to buy the Bitcoin off-market aims to mitigate any negative impact on the market. His intervention could help stabilize Bitcoin’s price, preventing potential volatility from such large-scale transactions.
