Who are Whales?
A cryptocurrency whale or a crypto whale or just a ‘Whale’ is referred to an individual or an entity who holds a large amount of an asset. They have enough share of the circulating supply and carry the huge potential to manipulate the price variations. Some examples include, the top 100 BTC wallets holding nearly 15.36% that’s more than 2 million BTC out of 19 million. While Dogecoin whales collectively hold nearly 52% or 29.5 billion DOGE.
These large holdings are closely monitored by the experts and tracked by the on-chain platforms as they have the potential to pump or dump the price. Most of the whales remain passive, but if in case any whale makes any transactions, it is been publicly announced. The whales always wait for the right opportunity, specifically the market crash to accumulate more. In some cases cause bear markets accumulate more.
What are Whales Accumulating Now?
It has to be noted that each crypto asset has its whale and keeps on accumulating the respective asset during each dip. However, the current scenario is a little different as the whale’s accumulated other assets with huge volumes.
Bitcoin whales have been accumulating more bitcoin in every dip. The BTC whales began accumulating in the second half of 2020 and sold when the asset smashed its highs at $64,000. Since then, the accumulation undertook a descending trend until the recent spike. In a very unusual event, whale accumulation shot up from around 3.5 million to 3.8 million.
