Earlier this week, blockchain analytics platform Santiment told its followers to keep a close watch on the number of BTC whale addresses as changes to the upside could indicate confidence in Bitcoin’s rally.
Santiment also noted that the number of addresses holding between 100 to 1,000 Bitcoin had already increased slightly while those holding between 1,000 to 100,000 Bitcoin had stayed flat.
“Bitcoin has launched to a six-month high, surprising the bearish trader sentiment. With prices jumping above $24,200 for the first time since August 14th, 2022, watch for whale addresses increasing as a sign of increased key stakeholder confidence.”Don't Miss a Beat – Subscribe to get crypto email alerts delivered directly to your inbox
