Santiment claims that one of the primary causes of such a significant price increase is the recent activity of a sizable herd of high-tier whales. The company’s analysts estimate that these wallets can hold 1,000–10,000 bitcoins. They have jointly purchased BTC worth $1.46 billion over the last two weeks. That is 64,638 coins, to be exact.
