VC firms have been keeping a keen eye on the crypto sector based on the massive capital inflows witnessed. For instance, they invested a whopping $30 billion in 2021.

Market analyst Holger Zshaepitz pointed out:

“Crypto attracted $30bn of venture-capital funding in 2021, more than in all other years combined. VC money almost quadrupled previous high of $8bn in 2018, the year following Bitcoin’s 1,300% breakthrough gain.”

Bitcoin Whale Accumulation Soars

Despite Bitcoin whales’ holdings dropping significantly since October 2021, their accumulation has gained momentum based on the addition of 18,104 BTC.

Market insight provider Santiment stated:

“Bitcoin whale addresses holding 100 to 10k BTC have collectively accumulated 18,104 more BTC since the April 10th price drop below $40k. However, their holdings are still down substantially since October.”

Holding is a favoured strategy in the Bitcoin market, given that accumulation is not only being undertaken by whales but also by smaller addresses. 

Crypto analytic firm IntoTheBlock noted:

“The BTC accumulation is not only a whale’s game. Addresses holding <10 BTC have increased their holdings in 2022 dramatically.”

Meanwhile, the weekly trade volume on centralized exchanges hit lows, last seen in June 2021.

The tendency also shows a holding culture because once coins exit exchanges, they are transferred to cold storage and digital wallets for future purposes other than speculation.
