There's much more moving out there than just $273M.


Now with better links...

Don't expect random exchanges, especially fee free ones,
to be publishing, or subject to, any sort of holistic truths.

Only the blockchains themselves contain truth, seek it from them.
Everything else is n-tier nth-party non disinterested data and lies.
Expect that, as it certainly will be. And make of it what you will.
Trust and use the ones you find worthy. Calling for State regulation
will only result in yet another pointless corrupt Fiat by another name.
