Crypto Whales Accumulate $3 Billion Worth Of Bitcoin In January

According to intotheblock, prominent crypto whales and institutional investors have collectively amassed $3 billion worth of Bitcoin this month.

The quantity of Bitcoin held in wallets with over 1,000 BTC has surged by more than 76,000 BTC, reaching a total of approximately 7.8 million BTC.

Recent on-chain reports from Lookonchain indicate significant accumulation by institutions. iShares, managed by Blackrock, added 2,073 BTC ($87 million) to their holdings, now totaling 52,026 BTC ($2.18 billion). 

Fidelity also increased their Bitcoin holdings by 2,383 BTC ($100 million), now amounting to 46,238 BTC ($1.94 billion). Additionally, ARK 21Shares acquired 1,105 BTC ($46.37 million), bringing their total holdings to 14,390 BTC ($603.89 million).

Meanwhile, Grayscale deposited 6,534 BTC ($274.95 million) into Coinbase Prime, continuing their accumulation trend.

Since the ETF approval, Grayscale has deposited 119,663 BTC ($4.91 billion) into Coinbase Prime, with current holdings totaling 495,290 BTC ($20.76 billion).

Over 516,000 Bitcoin Transaction Happened

An analysis by Ali highlights significant price ranges where over 516,000 BTC transactions occurred: $16,500, $26,770, and $42,550.

In November 2022, $16,500 served as a crucial support level, while $26,770 remained stable during the summer of 2023. 

Presently, $42,550 appears to be a pivotal support level for BTC in 2024, with Bitcoin currently up by 3% and trading at $43,400.

The accumulation of Bitcoin by whales and institutional investors, coupled with the identification of key support levels, underscores growing confidence in Bitcoin’s long-term potential and resilience. 

As institutional interest continues to strengthen, Bitcoin’s role as a store of value and hedge against inflation appears increasingly solidified in the financial landscape.
