False rumors of Walmart offering customers the option to pay in litecoin emerged on Monday. Following the fake press announcement, the crypto spiked 30% to $234.85 in the morning. After the retail giant quickly dispelled the rumors, litecoin tumbled back to $180.63, as of press time.

Clearblock Insights co-founder Cody Ryan weighed in on bitcoin price action for the coming weeks.

“On-chain data continues to show whales buying heavily into the weakness, with addresses holding [over] 1000 BTC trending towards their highest aggregate holdings since May— a historically bullish indicator,” Ryan told Blockworks. “We believe patience will be rewarded here with expectations of a strong Q4 on the horizon, even as continued regulatory uncertainty looms over the markets.”
