According to crypto analytics firm Santiment, Bitcoin large wallets are on the increase as the number of addresses holding more than 10 BTC attained its highest level since February 2021.
Santiment tweeted, “The amount of Bitcoin addresses holding 10+ BTC has ramped up, particularly since the mid-June drop. In the past 30 days, these addresses have increased by 1.12%. There are 149,200 addresses holding 10 or more BTC, the most held since February 2021.”
The analytics firm also revealed that addresses holding between 10 and 100 BTC have added 52,000 BTC to their wallets in the past 5 weeks.
“Bitcoin addresses holding between 10 to 100 BTC have been stacking Satoshis on this dip, and have collectively upped their holdings to 4.29 million BTC. In the past 5 weeks, as prices have retraced -27%, they have added 52,000 more coins to their wallets.”
It’s worth noting that the largest cryptocurrency by market cap has been trending sideways since the 30th of June, giving no clue on what the next major trend could be.
