Sharks and whales increase the accumulation
An increase in XRP accumulation has been seen with whale shark addresses in the range of 1 million to 10 million, data from S.antiment detection.
The cool thing about this backlog is that the token has never been at its current level before. As of press time, the total number of addresses has risen to 1,614, which is an increase from 1,500 in November.
Additionally, these whale sharks and sharks titles account for 7.2% of shipments in their holdings. In keeping with the title level statistics, viewership was also at an all-time high.
This actually indicates that December was the month with the largest accumulation of whale sharks. However, what could be responsible for this development?
Increases and decreases in the accumulation of sharks and whales can be seen on both charts. Additionally, this correlation could be related to the ongoing XRP price trajectory. It can be seen that when prices fell, these levels of addresses were presented with an accumulation opportunity.
The current price of XRP in December was a huge opportunity given the high accumulation potential offered by the low price.
