Massive Ethereum Whale Begins Accumulating Four Altcoins As Bitcoin and Crypto Markets Recover
One mega-whale just went on an altcoin shopping spree to the tune of $30.6 million.
The blockchain-transaction tracker WhaleStats reveals that the Ethereum whale wallet named Light bought 399,999 OMG for $2,451,999.
The OMG Foundation, formerly known as OMG Network, is layer-2 Ethereum scaling solution that integrates with mainstream wallets. The 122nd-ranked crypto asset, OMG, is priced at $5.95.
The 4th-richest whale wallet also purchased a cool million worth of decentralized oracle network Chainlink (LINK) for a total of $25,170,000.
At time of writing, Chainlink is the 17th-ranked cryptocurrency and trading for $25.19.
The wallet also loaded up on popular meme coin Shiba Inu (SHIB), buying a staggering 58.9 billion tokens for $1,906,592.
Shiba Inu has been fighting its way back from monthly lows on January 9th and is currently valued at $0.00003.
The last altcoin on Light’s to-do list was play-to-earn blockchain gaming platform Gala (GALA). The whale tucked away 3,260,000 GALA tokens for $1,137,691.
Gala is having a rough start to the new year, having fallen from $0.45 to its current valuation of $0.32.
WhaleStats reports that Light also made a huge purchase of the Bitcoin-pegged token Wrapped Bitcoin (WBTC), dropping a mind-boggling $86,428,000 on 2,000 WBTC.
Finally, WhaleStats tweeted that SHIB has become the most popular token among the leading Ethereum wallets with 15.75% of all holdings.
“Just in: SHIB Shibtoken had come back to be [the] biggest token position by dollar value among the top 1000 ETH whale wallets.”
