On 5th April, the Bitcoin whale, which is the third-richest overall after the wallets owned by cryptocurrency exchanges, initially purchased 289 BTC, followed by another whopping accumulation of 2,952 BTC, making 3241 BTC within 24 hours. The dollar value of the newly purchased BTC is relatively $141 million at current prices.

Massive Bitcoin Whales’ Accumulation in April

The on-chain analyst at blockchain analytics firm Glassnode claimed that April has so far seen a massive purchase of Bitcoin (BTC).

A pseudonymous analyst at the firm identified on Twitter as Checkmate pointed out that both whales and holders with less than 1 BTC are on a buying spree.


“A historically strong month of Bitcoin buy side has seen exchange outflows hit approximately 96,000 BTC per month, with Shrimp and large Whales leading the charge. We still need to see market follow through, but there has been an impressive volume taken off market recently.”
