Bitcoin Whale Activity Rises, Bull Market Confidence Returns

According to blockchain statistics, big Bitcoin Whale Activity Rises have been buying more coins than usual, indicating they are back in the bull market. Following Bitcoin’s record high in March and the accompanying severe market correction, whale activity has resumed its previous level of intensity.

The total amount of Bitcoin held by whales has increased, and analysts have noticed a surge in the percentage change in whale addresses’ ownership over the past 30 days.

Whales Buy Bitcoin Aggressively During Bull Markets

Bitcoin “whales,” or accounts held by individuals or entities with 1,000 BTC to 10,000 BTC in circulation (not including mining companies or cryptocurrency exchanges), are known to increase their buying activity during bull markets and decrease it during bear markets—Bitcoin Whale Activity Rises by more than 9.8 per cent in March. As of May 22, their accumulation rate has jumped back to 5.5% from 4.2% in April, coinciding with Bitcoin’s 20% price fall to under $57,000.

According to Ki Young Ju, CEO of CryptoQuant, whales bought 47,000 BTC during the early May market crash, which shows they are bullish on the asset’s future. The “realised cap” metric, which utilises the purchase time rather than the current market value to determine the total value of all coins held by Bitcoin Whale Activity Rises, shows that their investment in Bitcoin has increased substantially from $57 billion to $122 billion since the start of the year.

The latest 3% weekly surge in Bitcoin’s price to $68,760 reflects the market’s optimism. The strong fundamentals of the cryptocurrency were highlighted by lead Glassnode analyst James Check. Who underscored that the total realised cap of the Bitcoin network has reached a record high of $578 billion. On the other hand, Check thinks we have a long way to go before we reach the euphoria phase of this bull market, so I guess we’re seeing a mix of excitement and enthusiasm right now.
