The overall amount of huge BTC wallets has increased dramatically after the formal declaration of the Russia and Ukraine war. During the last four weeks, BTC addresses holding 1K to 10K BTC have expanded their holdings of the nation’s leading cryptocurrency. The total number of huge BTC wallets has increased by over 8.3 percent in just one month. Santiment data shows that 2,203 wallet addresses currently have about 1K Bitcoin, the greatest number in over a year.
How Far Have Volumes Increased or Decreased In Q4 Last Year?
Since Ukraine and the Russian war became public, BTC addresses holding 1,000 to 10,000 Bitcoin have increased by 8.3 percent. The 2,203 wallet addresses are at an all-time high from a year ago. This level and the 100 to 1,000 Bitcoin layer have traditionally predicted price movements, Santiment said.
It’s nothing unusual for huge Bitcoin addresses to accumulate. BTC whales amassed enormous sums of the cryptocurrency after prior market crashes between 2017 and 2020. Long-term Bitcoin bulls gained roughly 2,000,000 coins to their portfolio during the first seven months of last month.
Long-term investors of other cryptocurrencies, alongside BTC, are bolstering their portfolios with big investments. As per Santiment’s most current data, 336 XRP wallet addresses have 10,000,000 tokens. The set above of addresses amassed around 1.29,000,000,000 tokens during November and December in 2020.
Top-tier whales are now accumulating the 2nd largest amount of Ripple in the last five years. There are presently 336 XRP Network wallet addresses with a balance of at least 10 million XRP. Although most of these are probably swaps, this remains a significant outlier. Furthermore, significant cryptocurrency moves are becoming more common. Bithumb recently shifted 89,000,000 tokens worth over $70,000,000 to a well-known XRP account. The total number of large cryptocurrency transactions has increased recently, notwithstanding a rise in whale buildup.
Cardano just increased by 10 percent, a pleasant surprise for patient hodlers. Whale trades, which have increased by 26 percent in the last week, will be something to watch out for. Aave had increased by another 12 percent, for a total return of +48 percent in just nine days. The number of whales that move would determine whether or not the rise could continue. Today, seven transactions totaling $1 million or more were made, giving an early hint of possible profit-taking, Santiment noted.
