Santimen report: Whales are after these 3 altcoin projects

Because transactions exceeding $1 million involving these cryptocurrencies are on the rise. Company analysts interpret the whales’ behavior as follows:
Litecoin whale transactions were much higher than normal in the second half of December. Additionally, Binance’s native tokens BNB and BUSD are seeing high gains of over $1M in their respective transactions. Keep these cryptocurrencies on your radar.
Binance Coin is currently trading around $240. Meanwhile, Litecoin is hovering above $65. Santiment also says that news events play an important role in influencing the direction of the crypto market in 2022.
Binance news had a direct impact on the market
According to its analytics platform, crypto prices are likely to rebound after fear, uncertainty, and suspicion (FUD) revolving around the COVID-19 pandemic, Federal Reserve interest rate hikes, the Russia-Ukraine war, and the multi-billion dollar collapse of FTX. Company analysts say the following in annual analysis:
2022 has been the most prominent year for the crypto markets to be affected by the news. As the year draws to a close, investors are watching news of COVID-19, FTX and Sam Bankman-Fried, interest rates and the Russia-Ukraine War. As the FUD on these four issues eases, prices are likely to rise.
How about Bitcoin?
Whale accumulation is the driving force of a rise in the price of a crypto. However, the current backlog of whales has remained incomplete for BTC. According to on-chain analyst Dan Lim, in the current bear market, there is a correlation between large movements in the market and increased BTC deposits on exchanges to protect the investments of the top 10 whales.
Lim noted that this could be a sign of capitulation due to macroeconomic factors or a temporary capitulation to market conditions.
Whales’ reluctance to trade BTC over the past few months has been confirmed by Santiment’s recent data, which showed BTC whale transactions exceeding $100,000 and $1 million on Dec. 27 to hit their lowest levels since 2019 and 2020, respectively.
Finally, the balance volume of the leading crypto was determined as -883,026. When a crypto’s OBV drops to a negative value, it is a bearish signal that indicates a decrease in the accumulation volume. Therefore, the possibility of further price declines should not be ruled out. cryptocoin.comAs you follow, BTC is trading at $ 18,500 at this time.
