Crypto Whales Accumulated about 190 Million XRP in the Last Three Months

The last few weeks have been unfavorable for cryptocurrencies in the market. Largest digital currencies such as Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH) have recorded huge losses. The former lost $50,000 support in the process, while the latter dropped below the $4,000 mark.

In the middle of the negative trend, some traders took losses and moved on, while some crypto whales seized the opportunity to actively accumulate. XRP whales have been making good use of this opportunity, according to Santiment.

Santiment tweeted, “#XRPNetwork is currently sitting at about $0.81, but smart money whale millionaires have kept up their one-year trend of accumulating more supply. Addresses with 1M to 10M XRP hold 3.31B, including a 6% increase to their holdings in the past 3 months.

The new trend started in September 2021 when the number of wallets holding 1 to 10 million XRP on the network reached 5.8%. At the moment, whales hold 6.1% of all wallets on the network.
