Santiment, the blockchain analysis firm, tweeted this morning that BTC’s ranging prices have a lot to do with declining whale interest.
According to the chart shared by Santiment, the price of BTC and $1M+ valued whale transactions are closely correlated. The tweet concluded that a continued slide in BTC’s price and a spike in whale interest will be a historic bullish signal that investors and traders need to keep note of.
