Data from an advanced crypto tracker, Whales Alert, showed that an ETH whale moved 81,000 ETH (34,902,307 USD) transferred from an unknown to an unknown wallet.

What are Ethereum whales?
In the Ethereum world, traders or investors who own a large number of Ethereum are typically called whales. This means an Ethereum whale would be a single Ethereum address owning around 1,000 Ethereum or more.
Meanwhile, Ethereum’s daily transaction count neared an all-time high this week. Its ATH of 1.34 million was set on Jan 4, 2018, when Ethereum had an average market price of $1,042. Earlier this week, its transaction count was within shouting distance at 1.27 million.
Priced at $431 as at the time of this writing, the increased activity is a good long-term sign of things to come for Ethereum holders.

Things you need to know about Ethereum
Ethereum is a cryptocurrency designed for decentralized applications and deployment of smart contracts, which are created and operated without any fraud, interruption, control or interference from a third party.
Ethereum is a decentralized system, fully independent, and is not under anybody’s authority. It has no pivotal point, and its platform is connected to thousands of its users through their computing system around the world, which means it’s almost impossible for Ethereum to go offline.
2,257 investors globally own at least 1,000 Bitcoins
The number of addresses holding 1k+ coins just reached an ATH of 2,257.
It’s no longer news that most Bitcoin wallets are now in profit. What seems to be trending now, is the number of investors owning at least 1,000 BTC – hitting a record high, as data retrieved from Glassnode, a crypto analytic firm, revealed Bitcoin Number of Addresses Holding 1k+ coins just reached an ATH of 2,257.
- Previous ATH of 2,256 was observed earlier today.
- Metric Description: The number of unique addresses holding at least 1k coins.
- At the time of drafting this report, Bitcoin traded at $18,456.68 with a daily trading volume of $32,979,859,228.
- BTC price is up 0.0% in the last 24 hours.
- It has a circulating supply of 19 Million coins and a max supply of 21 Million coins.
Whales could be anticipating a strong medium to long-term Bitcoin price trend, and are choosing to hold on to BTC in expectation of a bull market.
Much of the recent increase can be attributed to wealthy entities withdrawing their BTC from the exchange. Apparently, this is not new wealth – rather, it represents a change in the way Bitcoin whales are choosing to hold their coins.
From a macro level, this increase in the number of BTC whales can be considered bullish.
Nairametrics believes the increased buying pressures by such investors are partly responsible for the non-dilutable crypto recent highs.
Billionaires that can triple the value of Bitcoin
Michael Saylor has disclosed billionaires who could turn the price of Bitcoin up, at least three folds.
The Founder and Chief Executive officer of the popularly traded business intelligence firm, Michael Saylor, recently disclosed billionaires, who could turn the price of Bitcoin up at least three folds. His bias was based on the aurora these billionaires bring notably in the global financial world.
In his most recent Youtube interview, he started his narrative by explaining deeply the effect such billionaires would have on the flagship crypto market,
“It’s important that 100 million people embrace Bitcoin but there are 10 people that can triple the price of Bitcoin. This is not like Facebook, nobody ever brought a billion friends to Facebook. This is like when a person with $10 billion decides that they want to adopt this network and they put $2 or $3 billion on the network, that’s going to be more monetary energy that flowed into the network than the first 10 million people put into the network. It’s ten million to one gain.”
He went on by revealing the names of such billionaires, amid their stronghold seen on global finance.
“Here’s the other thing. When a person with $10 billion puts $10 billion on the network, they’ve got a friend with $10 billion. Warren Buffett (Berkshire Hathaway CEO) plays bridge with Bill Gates (Microsoft founder) and then they talk with Mark Zuckerberg (Facebook CEO and founder).
“So when this hits that social network, it’s like a billion to two billion to four billion to eight billion and those four decisions, those four blocks have more impact on the network than the first 10 million blocks.”
What you should know
Sequel to these macro, Nairametrics some days ago revealed key insights coming from DeVere Group discovering that 73% of poll participants (millionaires) are now already invested or are preparing to invest in digital assets, such as Ethereum, Bitcoin, and XRP, before the end of 2022, showing a significant amount of interest by the world’s top earners.
- The findings come as the price of Bitcoin rallied close to $18,000, almost close to the $19,763 all-time record reached in December 2017.
- Most of the high net worth individuals polled by the financial firm got triggered into planning to buy cryptos by the latest institutional buying.
- Those classified as millionaires in the study include ‘High Net Worth’ having more than £1m (or equivalent) in investable assets.
Two cryptos you should consider investing in
Two cryptos are presently catching the eyes of top experts as seen by Van de Poppe who is advising his 85,000 followers on Twitter.
In the era where the buying pressure seen lately has grown at an alarming rate in the crypto-verse, some unknown cryptos are presently showing good potentials.
Two cryptos are presently catching the eyes of top experts as seen by Van de Poppe who has advised his 85,000 followers on Twitter to consider Ocean Protocol (OCEAN), which is designed to allow businesses to sell their data and buy data in a secure and safe marketplace.
What you should know: According to the crypto expert, traders can wait for OCEAN to decline over 37% against Bitcoin (BTC) before making a buy.
“I did discuss that 3,900 (satoshis) level is a very important level to break. Lower highs, lower lows. Looking at support levels at 2,500 and 1,900 (satoshis) for massive entries. Everything retraces fully.”
Blurry chart, but it's from a few weeks back, on the livestream.

The highly revered crypto expert also disclosed Tomochain (TOMO), a platform that helps to improve the scalability issues limiting many blockchains. The crypto expert says TOMO is offering a great opportunity against BTC as it trades close to historical support of 0.000034.
“Most likely we’re going to find the resistance around $0.80 so we’re getting close. Most likely, we’re going to get something like this: either we’re going to $0.48 again or $0.59. These two levels I’ll be looking for accumulation for a swing trade…
Target zones if we get the new rally up and the new impulse wave, quite clear about a buck ($1.00), about $1.60, and you can use the Fibonacci 1618 extension tool through which you can determine targets at $2.50.”
