888,888 Ether sent with 5 cents?

An ether transaction amounting to $181 Million USD was sent out of a Binance wallet, by paying only 5 cents on fees. The transaction is likely from Binance moving funds around their wallets, judging from similar transactions made on the Bitcoin Blockchain and statement from Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao.

"We will be moving some funds between our cold wallets. A tell tale sign of a new cold wallet on Binance is two small transfers from and BACK TO an existing wallet, then a large transaction. No need to be alarmed.", he tweet last Saturday.

BOJ Deputy Governor Doubts Digital Currency Will Enhance Monetary Policy

In an interview by Reuters, Bank of Japan's Governor Masayoshi Amamiya expressed doubt on the role of central bank issued digital currency in enhancing nation's monetary policy.

While some academics said that digital currencies can overcome the "zero lower bound" - a situation in which they lose tools to stimulate the economy once interest rates fall to zero, Amamuya said it would only work by eliminating cash from society.

However Amamiya said there was "quite a high hurdle" for crypto-assets to overcome sovereign currencies - or currencies issued and backed by central banks - as the main means for payment and settlement.
