Bitcoin Whales Holding 100k+ BTC Increase to an 11 Month High

Fear and FUD Had Increased When Bitcoin Failed to Break $60k. In an April 7th analysis, the team at Santiment had pointed out that there was an increased level of fear and negative sentiment in the crypto market.

The fear and FUD in the crypto markets were attributed to Bitcoin failing to recapture the $60k price level and Ethereum falling back below $2k. Bitcoin would go on to regain $60k albeit temporarily, with Ethereum now trading at $2,147.

Such fear and uncertainty could be one reason the number of Bitcoin holders with 1k to 100k BTC has dropped as highlighted above.

High Chance of Volatility During Bitcoin’s Weekly Close. With respect to price, Bitcoin is once again trading below $60k at its current value of $59,800.

The weekly close is only a few hours away with Bitcoin once again facing a possible dip to $58k. If this macro support zone is broken during the event, Bitcoin could revisit the $56k price area before bullishness can resume with the new week.

Summary:

  • The number of Bitcoin whales holding 100k BTC or more has hit an 11 month high
  • The whales now control 2.20% of Bitcoin supply up from 0.76% 11 weeks ago
  • At the same time, smaller addresses of 1k – 100k Bitcoin have dropped
  • The drop could be attributed to selling before BTC broke $60k
  • Bitcoin could lose the $58k support zone during the weekly close

Bitcoin whales holding 100k or more BTC are continuously stacking sats. This is according to data shared by the team at Santiment that points out that this category of investors now holds 2.2% of Bitcoin’s supply up from 0.76% eleven weeks ago. Their numbers have therefore also hit an 11-month peak as explained by the team at Santiment through the following statement and accompanying chart.

The percentage of #Bitcoin‘s supply held by whale addresses with 100k or more $BTC has risen from 0.76% 11 weeks ago, to 2.20% today, an 11-month high. Meanwhile, the smaller 1k-100k $BTC addresses have dropped from 42.4% to 39.5% in the same 11 weeks.
