Martinez pointed out that these addresses are currently holding between 1 million and 10 million ADA tokens. In fiat at current prices, the figures represent $1.2 million and $12 million, respectively.

The chart shared by the analyst shows that the number of whale addresses experienced a notable drop in February 2022, when the price of the digital token ADA was trading around $0.9.

However, whales are currently accumulating ADA as shown on the chart. The increase in the number of ADA whales can simply be attributed to the current positive price trend in the market.

Ali Martinez tweeted, “The number of whales on the Cardano network has increased by 1.7%. Roughly 42 addresses holding 1,000,000 to 10,000,000 ADA were created since Mar. 21. The uptick may seem insignificant at first glance, but these whales hold between $1.2 million and $12 million in ADA.”
