- Santiment data shows increased whale engagements on Curve Finance network.
- Circulating supply remained stable for CRV, and smaller holders are not participating in the market.
- CRV’s price is in sideways movement, awaiting a breakout to establish a new trend.
Data from Santiment, the behavior analytics platform, reveals a spike in whale activities in the Curve Finance (CRV) network as is also reported by the platform’s official Twitter handle. The recent rally shows that engagements increased among large CRV holders, while small and medium holders have remained stagnant.
Curve Finance’s CRV token has been one of the top performers since the beginning of the new year. CRV opened the year at $0.524 and traded at $1.010 as of the time of writing. This surge represents an increase of almost 100% in four weeks, according to data from TradingView.
A significant part of this rally results from whales’ activities similar to the recent alert by Santiment. As per the analytic platform, the CRV wallets holding large amounts of tokens are responsible for the recent large transactions. The number of such wallets also increased by 2% in the last 30 days. Such details typically suggest an upcoming bullish trend, reflecting a growing demand for the tokens.
Notably, Santiment also reports that circulating supply remained the same, and small and medium token holders have stayed away from the market. All of these happen when CRV price appears to be in a sideways movement, consolidating on the recent rally and perhaps assessing where to go next.
CRV’s current behavior corroborates the predictions in an earlier post on Coin Edition. As predicted in the post, the inability of CRV to break above the $1.20 region has resulted in a fall back to $1.00. This area is currently undergoing a retest, which is probably the reason why small and medium investors are not actively participating in the market. They may jump in after the whales have confirmed the trend.
CRV prices have remained between $1.00 and $1.20 for the past seven days. It is the most extended sideways movement it has experienced this year. Traders and investors are observing the market to see its direction. Either way, a confirmed breakout could signal small and medium investors to return to the market. For now, it remains the playground of the whales.
