IntoTheBlock notes that whales holding more than 0.1% of the total BTC supply collectively accumulated 19,760 Bitcoins worth $1.235 billion, at an average price of $62,500 per coin.

IntoTheBlock also notes that miners’ BTC holdings hit a 12-year low going into the halving on Friday night, indicating that miners have been net sellers leading up to the event, which slashed Bitcoin’s block rewards from 6.25 BTC ($398,134) to 3.125 BTC ($199,067).

The analytics firm also analyzes the historical price impact of Bitcoin halvings.
