CryptoQuant CEO Ki Young Ju shares his insights into the increase in whale movements.
“When fear hits the BTC market, whales are active in trading for various reasons. This year’s June hike appears to have borrowed BTC to fill collateral for long positions if you see its heavy flows between spot and derivative trades. “
He says the increase in whale activity could be an indicator that the market has bottomed out.
“I used to mention it as a cyclical background signal as it represents oversold. I’m not sure how it would turn out in this macro environment. “
