Number Of Crypto Whales Drop Despite Increased Activity – Santiment Data

Over the weekend, the number of Bitcoin whales holding hit its lowest since August 2019. 

Bitcoin Whales Transfer Reach $98.6 Million

On February 23rd, Santiment, a market intelligence platform that tracks on-chain and social metrics for more than 2,500 cryptocurrencies, posted a chart on Twitter highlighting Bitcoin whales’ activities.

According to Santiment, the number of addresses holding 100-1000 BTC has remained stable while the price of BTC has fluctuated between $23,000 to $25,000. Conversely, BTC whales possessing 1000-10,000 BTC have declined.


A recent report from Whale Alert reveals that BTC whale transfers moved a total of $98.6 million. Notably, $46.3 million was moved from Gemini to an unidentified wallet, $24.5 million was sent from Binance to an anonymous wallet, and $24.8 million was moved from an anonymous wallet to Coinbase.

Currently, the BTC market is bearish after recording little gains in January. BTC’s price has been unable to surpass its next resistance price level of $27,000. However, if buyers successfully break this barrier, it could trigger a bullish momentum and raise the BTC price.
