On-chain data has revealed how crypto whales swooped in to scoop large amounts of the FTT token. The chart below shows that following Gensler’s comments on Nov. 9, the whales carried out a 2023 peak of 95 large transactions the following day.
The large transactions metric tracks crypto whales trading activity by summing up the number of daily transactions that exceed $100,000. Typically, a sharp increase in whale demand, as observed above, often triggers a bullish price action.
Unsurprisingly, the FTT token price instantly rose to a 2023 peak of $5.33 in as the crypto whales reacted to Gensler’s comments.
Although prices have declined 30% from last week’s peak toward $3.6, the chart above shows that the whales are still actively buying FTT. Hence strategic investors will keep an eye on the asset for further price gains.
Between Nov. 12 and Nov. 15, they added a staggering 90 million coins to their balances.
The whales wallet balance metric tracks real-time changes in the number of coins in custody of large institutional investors. The newly-acquired 90 million XRP are worth approximately $60 million, when valued at the current price of $0.66.
Such a large capital inflow from the whales’ buying activity indicates that they are positioning for another price breakout. If the whales continue to buy, XRP price could reclaim the $0.70 area in the coming days.
Santiment data reveals investors with balances of 1 million to 10 million ApeCoin have increased their holdings by another 10 million tokens between Oct. 26. and Nov. 10.
The 40% price bounce from all-time low, implies that some strategic retail investors have also been swayed to take bullish positions. If the whale accumulation continues, it could put to bed fears of ApeCoin token price going to zero.
In summary, institutional entities and high-net worth holders wield significant influence in a cryptocurrency ecosystem. Hence, crypto whales buying FTT token, Ripple (XRP), and ApeCoin (APE) at discounted prices this week could boost other investor’s confidence in these projects’ long-term viability.
