Bitcoin whales returning to pre-December 2017 pump levels

The number of investors that are holding an immense amount of Bitcoin (otherwise known as Bitcoin whales) is starting to approach the level that the crypto community hadn’t seen since the 2017 levels when Bitcoin rallied to $20,000.

According to Glassnode’s report dating June 15, we can see steady growth in the number of Bitcoin whales (traders holding over 1000 BTC) since April 2019.


Technical analysis



The largest cryptocurrency by market capitalization managed to return to its pre-price drop level, reaching back above $9,000. Bitcoin has skipped the $9,120 and $9,251 levels as well, currently stabilizing between $9,251 and $9,580.

Bitcoin’s volume increased during the rally but returned to the previous levels, while the RSI level increased to 50.

Key levels to the upside                    Key levels to the downside

1: $9,580                                           1: $9,120

2: $9,735                                           2: $9,251

3: $9,870                                            3: $8,980


Ethereum also had a correction over the day, bouncing above the $225.4 and trying to consolidate. However, the price action looks like the $225.4 level will be tested to the downside. If it stays strong, traders will have a chance to possibly enter a strong position towards the upside from there.

Ethereum’s volume increased both during the price spike as well as in general. Its RSI level is currently at 43.5.

Key levels to the upside                    Key levels to the downside

1: $240                                               1: $225.4

                                                           3: $198


XRP moved back above the $0.19 during the day, which represents a great bullish sign for it. Unlike with Bitcoin and Ethereum, XRP doesn’t have many support levels below $0.178, and dropping below it would be extremely bearish. However, the recent price increase returned XRP’s price to pre-price drop levels.

XRP’s volume returned to average after a slight increase due to the price increase, while its RSI level came to 50.

3: $0.214
