CryptoQuant CEO Ki Young Ju shares his insights on the uptick in whale movements.
“When fear hits the BTC market, whales are active in exchanges for various reasons. The uptick in June this year seems to have borrowed BTC to fill up collaterals for long positions if you see its heavy flows between spot and derivative exchanges.”.
He says the increase in whale activities could be an indicator that the market has hit the bottom.
“I usually mentioned this as a cyclic bottom signal since it represents oversold. Not sure how this would go in this macro environment.”
