🐳🦈 While markets have been suppressed, there has been an increase in the amount of larger #Bitcoin addresses popping up on the network. Addresses with 10 to 10k $BTC have surged on the drop 2 weeks ago, & 10k+ addresses have risen since February. https://t.co/A0KSYchZNW pic.twitter.com/h44uw5QjvK— Santiment (@santimentfeed) June 22, 2022
