The cryptocurrency market was abuzz with news of Uniswap’s UNI token registering double digit gains in a single day. CoinMarketCap’s data revealed that UNI’s price had increased by over 11% and 23% in the last 24 hours and week, respectively, and at the time of writing, UNI was valued at $6.78 with a market cap of more than $5.1 billion.
The success of UNI was largely attributed to the growth in the NFT space. Funding rate and MVRV Ratio also increased, suggesting a bullish sentiment in the market. Realistic or not, this pushed the UNI market cap in BTC’s terms higher, which may have played a key role in garnering whale interest.
Evidence of this was found on WhaleStats, a popular Twitter handle that posts updates related to whale activity. The account revealed that UNI was among the cryptos that the top 100 Ethereum whales were holding. 🐳 The top 100 #ETH whales are hodling $143,904,510 $BEST$82,328,580 $LOCUS$69,548,634 $SHIB$54,079,306 $BIT$45,040,571 #UnknownToken$38,364,578 $MATIC$35,607,938 $UNI$29,912,204 $MOC Whale leaderboard 👇https://t.co/N5qqsCAH8j pic.twitter.com/0EYhh5oRAs — WhaleStats (tracking crypto whales) (@WhaleStats) January 13, 2023
