Crypto analytics firm Santiment recently observed that the number of wallets that hold between 100 and 10,000 Bitcoin has increased to the highest level since June.
“The amount of Bitcoin addresses holding between 100 to 10,000 BTC ($2.3 million to $233 million) has reached its largest quantity since June 11th. We look to this tier of large addresses as confidence from large active holders, and this increase is encouraging.”Don't Miss a Beat – Subscribe to get crypto email alerts delivered directly to your inbox
