Bitcoin Whale Selling Pressure Continues As BTC Dips Under $20k

    On-chain data shows Bitcoin whales have continued to put selling pressure on the market as the price of the crypto now drops below $20k. Bitcoin Exchange Whale Ratio Has Spiked Up To High Values As pointed out by a post from CryptoQuant, the exchange inflows that followed the US CPI release lead to the price crashing 10% in only a couple of hours. The 'exchange whale ratio' is an indicator that measures the ratio between the sum of the top 10 Bitcoin transactions to exchanges, to the total exchange inflows. Since the ten largest transfers to exchanges are usually from the whales, this metric's value tells us how much of the total inflows are coming from these humungous holders. When the value of the ratio is high, it means whales are making up for a large part of the total transactions to exchanges. Such a trend can be a sign of dumping from this cohort. Now, here is a chart that shows the trend in the Bitcoin exchange whale ratio (EMA 7) over the year 2022 so far: The value of the metric seems to have been quite high in recent days | Source: CryptoQuant As you can see in the above graph, the 7-day exponential moving average of the Bitcoin whale ratio has been elevated recently. This shows that a big part of the recent activity on exchanges has been coming from these holders. Another indicator, the Spent Output Value Bands, tells us what the individual contributions to the inflows are from the different holder groups in the market. read More



On-Chain Data Shows Bitcoin Whale Dumping Behind Dip Below $19k

    On-chain data shows the Bitcoin exchange whale ratio spiked up just before the crypto's plunge below the $19k level. Bitcoin Exchange Whale Ratio Breached 90% Right Before The Price Dip As pointed out by an analyst in a CryptoQuant post, the whale activity on exchanges has been raised recently. The 'exchange whale ratio' is an indicator that measures the ratio between the top ten inflow transactions to exchanges and the total exchange inflows. The ten biggest transfers are assumed to be from the whales, so that the metric tells us what part of the total number of coins moving into exchanges is coming from these humungous holders. When the value of this indicator is high, it means a large part of the inflows is coming from whales right now. Such a trend can be a sign of dumping from this cohort and can therefore be bearish for the price. On the other hand, low values of the ratio can suggest whales are making up a healthy part of the transactions to exchanges at the moment. This kind of trend can either be bullish or neutral for the crypto's value. Historically, the metric has usually had values above 0.85 during bear markets or fake bulls, while it has generally remained below this threshold during bull runs. Now, here is a chart that shows the trend in the Bitcoin exchange whale ratio over the last couple of months: The value of the metric seems to have been elevated recently | Source: CryptoQuant As you can see in the above graph, the Bitcoin exchange whale ratio surged up... read More



Whale Spends 10,000 BTC Worth $203M, Bitcoins Stem From the Infamous 201...

    In two days' time, bitcoin's price dropped to fresh August lows as it dipped below the $20K per unit region for the first time since mid-July. During that time, two addresses created on December 19, 2013 sent 10,000 bitcoin worth $203 million to unknown wallets after sitting idle for close to nine years. Onchain data shows the 10,000 coins moved this week originally came from the Mt Gox breach that occurred on June 19, 2011. Whale That Once Held 134,000 Bitcoin From the 2011 Mt Gox Hack Spends the Last 10,000 This Week A 2013 whale moved approximately 10,001.514 BTC on Sunday, August 28, and on Monday, August 29, 2022. The funds stemmed from two addresses (1,& 2) created eight years and eight months ago on December 19, 2013. The 10,001 bitcoin transaction was caught by the blockchain parser btcparser.com, a tool that often catches so-called 'sleeping bitcoins' moving after sitting idle in addresses for years. Some of the sleeping bitcoins caught by blockchain parsers are BTC block subsidies mined in 2011, 2010, and 2009. The 2013 bitcoins were sent in two batches of 5,000 BTC per transaction, and then split into multiple smaller transactions. For instance, one address was split into multiple fractions of 47.98 BTC, and one single transfer for 200.99 BTC. The '14RKF' address that sent the 5,000 BTC came from a wallet 18JPr that once held 24,404.50 BTC. The 24K BTC from wallet 18JPr was originally received on November 24, 2012. Some of the wallets that received fractions of 47... read More



USDC Whale Holdings Percentage Hits A Two-Year Low

    The continuous price fluctuations in the crypto market considerably impact the Circle's stablecoin, USD Coin (USDC). The recent performance of its whales' addresses is making a more southern move. USD Coin records a drop of almost a two-year low in its primary wallet addresses. According to data from Glassnode, a crypto analytics company, USD Coin metrics are becoming less impressive. For example, the stablecoin had recent sell-offs and drops that cut down its market cap. A report on the second-largest stablecoin by market cap revealed that the US Treasury Department's sanction on Tornado Cash is a contributory factor against USDC's performance. Not only did the sanction create a loophole for the drop of USDC capitalization, but it also impacted that of Tether, its top competitor. Following the sanction of Tornado Cash, Circle, the parent the developer of USD Coin, froze about 75,000 USDC tokens. The coins were held by some addresses connected to Tornado Cash. This action brought a reduction in USDC's market cap. But Tether got an opposite performance on its part. As a result, USDT markets witnessed an increase of about $2 million a few days after the US Treasury sanction. Many commentators in the industry are comparing the growth and decline of market caps for USDT and USDC. The majority opines that investors made a shift from USDC to USDT. However, data from on-chain analytics providers indicated a massive sell-off over the past two weeks. Also, Glassnode data confirmed th... read More

Shiba Inu Trends Upwards Through Strong Whale Accumulations

    This year's crypto winter has created one of the most devastating effects in the crypto space in history. But there appears to be a resettling phase for the industry with the recent outplay of events. Moreover, following the special report of the CPI for July and other factors, the crypto space is seeing an encouraging relief and hope. The crypto space is making a positive impact as the performance of some cryptocurrencies takes a gradual up climb. Among the outstanding performing crypto assets is the meme coin, Shiba Inu (SHIB). The coin has not just staged its comeback but has taken a higher banner with its price rally. The price of Shiba Inu has gained significant value within the past 24 hours. The upward climb has the SHIB hitting $0.00001766 in its intraday trading performance. SHIB has gained more momentum l Source: SHIBUSDT on TradingView.com This excellent price stance from SHIB has gradually taken the token to the top in the past few days. The trend is supported by the massive and substantial accumulation of some prominent whales for the assets. Saantiment, an on-chain data analytics firm, provides reports on the progressive advancement of Shiba Inu. It revealed that the meme coin has been skyrocketing during the weekend. Its movement led to amassing up to 34% in value within the past 24 hours despite some tokens still maintaining a flat trend. Santiment explained that the SHIB price rally is linked to the backing from substantial whale accumulations of the coins. ... read More

The funds were worth $276 million using current ETH exchange rates. It was the first time the Genesis ICO participant spent coins since 2019, back when 5,000 ETH exited the whale's wallet. At the time of writing, the address currently holds 0.‍1177 ETH worth $22,4 after it emptied the 145,000 ether.

Bitcoin Bearish Signal: Exchange Whale Ratio Is Trending Up

    On-chain data shows the Bitcoin exchange whale ratio has been going up recently, something that may be bearish for the price of the crypto. Bitcoin Exchange Whale Ratio Has Been Going Up In Recent Weeks As pointed out by an analyst in a CryptoQuant post, the current BTC whale ratio value suggests whales are still selling large amounts. The 'exchange whale ratio' is an indicator that measures the ratio between the sum of the top ten Bitcoin transactions to exchanges and the total exchange inflows. In simpler terms, what this metric tells is how much of the total inflows to exchanges is contributed by the whales (the ten largest transactions are assumed to be from whales). When the value of the ratio is high, it means the whales are making up for a large part of the inflows right now. This could be either neutral or bullish for BTC's price.

Bitcoin Recovery Slows Down As Whale Inflows Remain Elevated

    The latest recovery rally in the price of Bitcoin has now slowed down as on-chain data shows signs of dumping from whales. Bitcoin Exchange Whale Ratio Continues To Be At High Values As pointed out by an analyst in a CryptoQuant post, BTC whales are sending their coins to exchanges at the moment. The 'exchange whale ratio' is an indicator that measures the ratio between the sum of the top ten transactions to exchanges and the total Bitcoin exchange inflows. In simpler terms, this metric tells us how the whale transactions (that is, the ten biggest transfers) compare with the total amount going into exchanges. If the value of this ratio is high, it means whales are making up for a large part of the inflows right now. This can be a hint that whales are dumping at the moment. Bitcoin attempted a recovery rally over the last few days after hitting the low below $18k, but the run has now slowed down as the value of the coin now looks to be moving sideways. This halt in the move may possibly be because of selling from whales that the exchange whale ratio is signaling right now. BTC Price At the time of writing, Bitcoin's price floats around $20.7k, down 2% in the last seven days. read More



Solend Whale Moves $25M to Another Platform Despite Canceled Plans to Se...

    Solend - a DeFi lending protocol built upon the Solana blockchain - attempted to take over a whale account that supposedly could put the protocol in trouble due to its colossal size of collateral at risk of being liquidated. After the crypto community fired at the DAO behind Solend approving such a proposal, the organization soon launched a second proposal that aimed to overwrite the first one and got it approved with 99% support from the voters. Hours later, the whale moved some of their funds to mitigate the risks. A Threat of Massive Liquidation In a Twitter thread on Sunday, Solend requested authorization from the DAO to 'temporarily take over the whale's account so the liquidation can be executed OTC and avoid pushing Solana to its limits.' Meanwhile, it promised that once the whale's position of SOL is not at immediate risk of being liquidated, the emergency power would be revoked accordingly. The announcement came on the platform, noticing the whale who had deposited 5.7 million SOL - making up more than 95% of Solend's liquidity - to take out a loan worth $108 million USDC and USDT. Under this circumstance, if SOL drops from the current price to $22.3, up to 20% of its position could be liquidated. As a result, it may cause a liquidity crisis in the protocol, further deepening the asset's plunge as fear reigns in the Solana community. Solend attributed its unusual measure to the issue's urgency and inability to contact the whale directly. When the proposal was passed ... read More

Bitcoin Whale Breaks 8 Year Long Silence With $30 Million Worth Of BTC T...

    After an eight-year dormancy, a Bitcoin (BTC) Whale unexpectedly moved $30 million worth of BTC. On November 20th, 2013, the exact address received 1,000 BTC worth $567,600 at the time, Blockchair reported.  The Bitcoin remained dormant in one wallet until it was moved as part of a much larger block that sent nearly 2,100 BTC to two other addresses.

During the last eight years, the inactive whale wallet received trace amounts of Bitcoin 23 times, and it appears that those amounts were for dusting attacks.  What are dusting attacks?

Ethereum, for one, stood at $3,000 until May 5 before it suddenly plummeted by $300 in minutes. The situation only worsened in the following days, and ETH found itself fighting to stay above $2,000.

Ethereum Whale Transactions Climb As Correlation With S&P 500 Continues

    Over time, the crypto market has maintained a close relationship with the stock market. Ethereum, the second-largest cryptocurrency, rose in lockstep with U.S. stocks for the first time in February. As a result, the token's 40-day correlation coefficient with the S&P 500 reached 0.65. Despite the brake anxious investors have put on price activity in the past week, the Ethereum (ETH) price is poised to rise over the weekend. Although trading volume has increased over the last week, and thus should have resulted in more consistent fluctuations, price responsiveness has been affected by geopolitical news, earnings, and stock market whipsaws. Ethereum Price Witnesses Turbulence The price of Ethereum has had a grueling week for investors and traders, with large swings in response to earnings, geopolitical events, and investors turning from risk-on to risk-off like a light switch.

    The third-largest Bitcoin whale, whom CryptoPotato has been tracking for quite some time, has added another $28 million worth of BTC in the past couple of days.

The first purchase was worth around $12 million, and it took place yesterday at a price of $38,200 - the whale added 318 BTC.

Bitcoin Whales on Buying Spree It's safe to conclude that there's a lot of uncertainty in today's financial world.

Somewhat expectedly, Europe's first war since WW2 caused substantial price disruptions in the crypto markets. Initially, bitcoin plummeted hard before it bounced off and even charted new gains surging towards $45,000. The latest price increase came following the steep sanctions that the West imposed on Russia because of its aggression, most of which are related to its economy, causing the ruble to crumble. At the same time, Glassnode data showed that the number of BTC addresses containing over 100 and more than 1,000 coins skyrocketed in a short period of time. Keeping in mind the financial sanctions against Russia and that crypto exchanges refused to ban the accounts of Russian-based customers, many speculated that some of these increases of large bitcoin wallets could come from the world's largest country by landmass or at le... read More
