Whale Watching in an Altcoin Wild West
15-06-21, 07:21

Altcoins are jumping all over the place in the previous week, with key stakeholders separating asset prices from one another quickly by dictating which should be pumped next.


Luckily, Santiment has a model to indicate when the number of whale addresses of ERC-20 and notable altcoins are increasing or decreasing. How do we identify which projects are gaining the fastest steam among crypto millionaires? By using our Whale Holders Distribution Model here. Freely open it, go to File -> Make a Copy, then Download Sansheets, and plug in your API: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1v41I4Kb1Fl6rwBwYIuCsmXqtQZw5I_fEbsjU7QsH_x0/view


Give it a spin with your Sanbase PRO account, and you'll quickly find how intuitive it is:


Below are three projects with notable rises in whale numbers, as well as three with notable drops:


⬆️ Increasing Number of Whale Address


Binance Network ($BNB)


Band Protocol ($BAND)


Uma ($UMA)

⬇️ Decreasing Number of Whale Address


Aelf ($ELF)


Kyber Network ($KNC)


Enjin Coin ($ENJ)

Altcoins With Major Whale Movement During This Dip
20-04-21, 08:12


When volatility strikes, as it has in the negative direction over the past 3-4 days, many traders tend to display a phenomenon known as "freezing up". This behavior is exactly how it sounds - traders don't want to make a mistake and buy into a downswing or sell into an upswing.


However, whales of many altcoins tend to become much MORE active when prices begin to rollercoaster wildly as they have been as Bitcoin dipped to $53k this weekend.


Here are three assets we see with major whale numbers rising this past week, and conversely, falling:



⬆️ Increasing Number of Whale Address


Ethereum ($ETH)

Ren Protocol ($REN)

Band Protocol ($BAND)



⬇️ Decreasing Number of Whale Address


Celcius ($CEL)


Litecoin ($LTC)


Storj ($STORJ)

Whales Continue Pumping Altcoins - Six Tokens Seeing Major Accumulations
09-02-21, 21:36

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!
