Crypto traders say Mount Ga's selling pressure could be lower than expected. And Julian Assange is a free man. You're watching Coin desk daily, I'm your host, Jen Sani Crypto. Traders say selling pressure from Mount Gox newly announced repayments could be much less than market observers fear easing concerns about an imminent sell off. Sam Callahan, senior analyst at Swan Bitcoin sent in an email to Coin desk that the impact on Bitcoin's price is likely overblown. He added quote, creditors who wanted to sell their Bitcoin have now had more than 10 years to do so through selling their bankruptcy claims to more convicted long term investors. End quote. This while Gal Research said it's reasonable to assume that most of the Bitcoin received by funds that acquired claims from creditors will be distributed to LPS in kind and not sold off. Julian Assange is now a free man. The Wikileaks co founder reached a plea deal with the US Department of Justice. He has pleaded guilty to a single espionage charge in exchange for a sentence of time served. Wikileaks announced on X that the co founder who spent five years in a UK jail cell in nearly seven years in Ecuador Embassy in London has boarded a private jet and left the country. Assange's departure from the UK follows prolonged negotiations with the US Department of Justice culminating in a deal that has not yet been formally finalized. Assange was arrested in the UK for breaching his bail conditions after seeking asylum in Ecuador's London Embassy to avoid extradition on various charges including those related to his role in publishing classified documents provided by Chelsea Manning and qualified tokens are back in the green after no credible evidence emerged that the Trump campaign or his family is involved with the DJ T token coin gecko.
