Bitcoin (BTC/USD) whales are showing signs of sustained accumulation, which has been rare to see throughout this crypto winter. Whales have collectively added 46,173 BTC ($929 million) to their wallets.
Bitcoin is the largest cryptocurrency in terms of market capitalization as well as overall appeal, and it has been hit hard by the crypto winter.
However, this accumulation could signal a bullish run in the future of the cryptocurrency as confidence within BTC increases.
Whale accumulation as a catalyst for growth
In the latest Bitcoin news, since September 27, the addresses that hold 100 to 10,000 BTC have added 46,173 BTC collectively to their wallets, as large Tether (USDT/USD) holdings have decreased, according to a report by Santiment.
This trend is a turnaround from an 11-month-long drop in the BTC holdings of whales, which was also previously reported by Santiment.
This latest accumulation is a signal that the BTC market has likely reached a bottom and could be poised for an upwards bounce.
