If this isn't the depiction of steady accumulation for #Chainlink's top 100 non-exchange whales in the past year, we don't know what is. $LINK's offline increase in tokens at this rate truly shows confidence in the asset from those with most at stake. https://t.co/8we3ZGkAy9 pic.twitter.com/0aUYFvklSC — Santiment (@santimentfeed) October 31, 2020 15% Of LINK’s Circulating Offer Come From Whales Highlighting the steady accumulation of LINK by whales, Santiment made it clear that the whales are very confident in this asset, due to how much they’re putting at stake to invest in it. LINK’s supply is currently dominated by whale wallets, and the top LINK whales have shown a stability in their aggressiveness for purchasing the token. Etherscan, a blockchain explorer, showed that the top 10 addresses, excluding liquidity pools, smart contracts, and exchanges, stand responsible for almost 15% of the total circulating offer of LINK. Massive XRP Internal Transactions Even XRPL Monitor, which is a tracking bot for XRP Ledger, has made it clear that transactions worth 100 million XRP have been made by several major exchanges, such as Bittrex, Bitstamp, Binance, Huobi, and Bitfinex. XRPL Monitor’s recent tweets showed that the On-Demand Liquidity (ODL) service of Bitstamp had moved 22.7 million XRP throughout its internal crypto-wallets. Another internal transfer was recorded by Huobi, who had moved 35 million XRP. Even BitFinex went in on this, having a similar volume of XRP move to the stock exchange. It should be noted that Huobi stands as one of the companies working alongside Ripple for the integration of PayID. PayID stands as a service dedicated to streamlining crypto payments, doing so by way of sending emails.
