Sometimes one or two major individual transactions alone are enough to reveal that a whale selloff may send an asset spiraling.
Here are a few assets seeing HUGE transactions the last few days:
Aave - $304M (2/24)
Aave saw its 2nd largest transaction (in USD) this year as a whale AAVE address sent 828.6k tokens to an exchange address.
Prices haven't moved much yet, but historically these kinds of transactions will foreshadow a further price slide when combined with high exchange inflow.
Kyber Network - $26M (2/22)
KNC had a flurry of large transactions Monday, including 13m tokens swapping exchange addresses.
The spike in on-chain transaction volume and exchange inflow has predictably sent KNC downward.
0x Protocol - $44M (2/19)
The 28M ZRX tokens sent from a whale to exchange address marked the highest USD value transfer in the token's 3.5-year history.
Prices have been very volatile since, but it did drop massively during the market-wide correction Monday.
Last week, we touched on some altcoins that we're currently whale watching, based on our data indicating that there are a growing number of holders of the respective assets that are qualifying as elite holders. This week, we're providing three examples of assets that have already seen massive growth thanks to these accumulations. We'll also look at three assets where their prices haven't reacted (yet) to the growth in their recent whale numbers.
And spoiler alert: many of the same tokens we covered last week are continuing to grow in whales the fastest!
