“Bitcoin whale addresses holding between 100 to 10k BTC kicked off July with a 60k BTC accumulation, the highest daily spike of 2021. These addresses hold 9.12 million coins combined after holding 100k less BTC just 6 weeks ago,” Santiment mentioned.
The latest BTC whale transfers came after the Bitcoin exchange supply ratio dropped significantly in the last few weeks.
