Assets covered: REN

Have you noticed a "Key Stakeholders Signals" panel on Sanbase home page? It's a nice tool for monitoring anomalies on the market. This panel revealed yesterday that someone has deposited millions in REN to a number of different exchanges. Is REN in danger? Let's see.

This is how we've noticed the anomaly:

If we take the biggest transaction and plot REN token flows from the sender using the Historical Balance tool or simply clicking it, we would notice REN being spread between three exchanges: Coinbase, Binance and Okex:

And here's how sender's REN balance look like historically (against REN price):

Dump alert? May be. If it's not a professional marketmaker preparing to absorb upcoming REN volatility. Let's take a look at general onchain data for REN.

First of all, we do see a strong exchange inflow spike, actually highest since February:

Third, is this activity coming from whales only? No, we can see a massive increase of REN deposits over the network. It's not only whales moving REN to exchanges:

Basically all three major 'volumes' are up (active addresses count, trading volume and social volume):

Even the Network Growth is up sharply, indicating that amount of new addresses interacting with REN has blasted:

Finally, if we look at pure price action, we might suggest we're in the middle of local uptrend, wave 3 from classic 5. The third waves tend to happen with the biggest activity under the hood:

Thus we probably have a chance to face a short term correction in REN. And then the last wave up, before midterm cool down.

Fundamentals matter?

After a period of decline there's been a decent uptick in renBTC over the past few weeks:

It's also worth noticing that the historical balance of REN Darknode registry (smart contract holding bonds of all Darknode Operators) seems to have plateaued over the past few months:
