Bitcoin Whales Gobble Over 47,000 BTC Worth $2,967,768,000 in Just 24 Hours Amid

Whales Move Over 600


The chief executive of blockchain intelligence platform CryptoQuant says that Bitcoin (BTC) whales have snapped up nearly $3 billion worth of the crypto king in just 24 hours.

CryptoQuant CEO Ki Young Ju tells his 345,000 followers on the social media platform X that the deep-pocketed investors have gobbled up tens of thousands of BTC in just one day, signaling the approach of a new era.

To get these results, Ju used CryptoQuant search filters to find whales of the top crypto asset by market cap that hold at least 100 BTC, had a transaction within a 24-hour time frame and do not qualify as a centralized exchange (CEX) or miner wallet.

Ju goes on to note that the recent spike of whale activity surrounding Bitcoin is not related to BTC exchange-traded funds (ETFs), which were approved by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) in January.

Last month, Ju said that newer crypto whales – or investors that CryptoQuant defines as holding at least 1,000 Bitcoin with an average coin age of less than 155 days – have accumulated nearly twice as much BTC as their long-term holder counterparts.

At the time, Ju said old BTC tokens were being transferred to new holders after Bitcoin’s average dormancy rate recently hit a 13-year peak.

Bitcoin is trading for $63,582 at time of writing, a 2.86% increase during the last 24 hours.
