Bitcoin Whale Buys 1,000 BTC at a Price Still Considered a Discount

A spectacular start to November, which saw Bitcoin peak at $68,789, came to an abrupt end on November 10. In the last 18 days, Bitcoin has dropped by more than 17% and now trades under $57k.

Although Bitcoin has underperformed in the market, investors have continued accumulating Bitcoin. This is evident by the increasing institutional inflow and the growing number of wallet addresses holding Bitcoin.

Bitcoin Whale Buys the Dip

As the price of Bitcoin plunged to $56k, Bitcoin whales purchased as much as 59,000 BTCs in the span of a week. 

The third-largest Bitcoin whale joined the trend, purchasing nearly 1,000 BTC in 48 hours when Bitcoin traded between $59,250 to $54,000. This is the 11th purchase on the whale’s wallet address this month, which now holds a total of 114,999 BTC.
