Brad Folkens, the CEO of CloudSight said that the inception of new payment methods over the traditional ones is prominent to the growing economy of information and data industry; to better handle the future of AI communications.

The company leader also added:

“At CloudSight, we found that Bitcoin payments (BTC), via the Lightning network, offer the perfect pairing for a unique utility with our visual cognition neural networks. We are very excited for the future of autonomous AI, and we believe this is a critical step in the development of this new technology.”

CloudSight will function in an autonomous manner where it will incentivize parties to engage in trustless transactions within a decentralized space. This will aid efficiency in acquiring information for them to learn in real-time by transacting with other humans, service providers, and AI entities. The startup cited an example of self-driving cars and explained:

“Imagine, your self-driving car needs to know what an unknown object is in the road ahead. This autonomous AI network will allow it to ask surrounding cars or reach out to a data provider. Once the car gathers the information, it could then be compensated for that fee by other cars asking the same question.”

Lightning Network technology was developed to solve the problem of malleability in Bitcoin transactions. It is an off-chain transaction network that is capable of stretching Bitcoin’s scalability to over a billion transactions every day. It establishes a bilateral relationship between the two parties and the transaction is cheaper, faster and confidential.

Bitcoin’s [BTC] dump may have triggered migration of BTCs worth hundreds of millions

Bitcoin dropped by 3.55% over 3 hours, an approximate drop of $200, causing many altcoins to dip by more than 8%. Although it might be a coincidence, thousands of Bitcoins started to migrate from wallets to exchanges, wallets to wallets, and exchanges to wallets.

Whale Alert, a Twitter user, pointed out the same in his tweets. A total of  25,000 BTC were sent in under 20 minutes, in multiples of 5000 BTC each, in a wallet to wallet transaction. Two of these transfers were initiated from an unknown wallet [3BYv2L9zCFYpvRQXakqkVWa7JyRw6Q9ZAm] to two other unknown wallets [3PWNGS2357TnjRX7FpewqR3e3qsWwpFrJH, 3CAF6ZjtJKaHiJixViXncTRwG3N5ss9vn4].

These 5 transfers were worth approximately $140 million. The third transfer took place from multiple wallets to a single wallet [3HuUiXmKN3beQSoM97kWjK1fesWWJvKvaZ].

Additionally, there were two massive transactions that took place two hours after the drop; the first transaction involved 14,999 BTC, while the second involved 11,000 BTC.

The former transaction was sent from two wallets to a single wallet [3GaB3nRWA1PLc3XQkkbpVtFwYYZEuMxD4i], which is the balance of the wallet. The latter transaction was similar to the one mentioned above, as the transaction originated from two wallets.

Another transaction containing 9,000 BTC was transferred from 357R3FeNmySYeHuRfyhFd6nMwzoLDdjfwV to 3NmHmQte2rP8pS54U3B8LPYQKkpG1pFF69. The sender has approximately 9,412 BTC after the transfer, while the recipient has 9,000 BTC.

All of the above transactions were worth approximately $332 million. The massive BTCs transferred could be due to the recent fall in the price. It can also be speculated that BTC whales were securing their profits earned from the shorts.

A Twitter user @Emperor_YZ commented,

“and who say the fee is high, just 30,360 sat ($1.67)🤔 for a $82.37 million transfer …”

Another user, @Omarin0, commented,

“It would have also been 1.67$ for a 1.67$ transfer. 100% fee. How nice”

@Emperor_YZ replied,

“wrong, you can use LN or other layer 2 apps to do small amount payments 😎 for BTC base layer, network security is always top priority, L2 is super cheap and can settle at base layer later”
