Crypto Update: Whale Acquires 211 Billion PEPE Tokens Due to Bitcoin Halving

Pepe [PEPE], a token with a frog-themed meme, has recently experienced a significant surge in value. This has attracted the attention of a whale investor who has purchased a staggering 211.6 billion PEPE tokens, which is currently worth $1.6 million. The investor acquired these tokens from Binance [BNB],, and Uniswap [UNI] within the last 24 hours.

The purchase has resulted in an unrealized profit of almost 4%. It is worth noting that this is not an isolated occurrence, as large transactions exceeding $100,000 have become increasingly common since the Bitcoin [BTC] halving. Santiment’s data shows a steady increase in such transactions.

Furthermore, the supply of PEPE on exchanges has been decreasing lately, which is a sign that investors are holding onto the meme coin. The recent price rally has also seen a surge in speculative interest for PEPE. The Open Interest (OI) in unsettled PEPE futures contracts has more than doubled in the last four days to reach $90 million.

A price increase, followed by an increase in OI, is usually an indication of an uptrend. Moreover, the Long/Short Ratio has indicated that more traders are taking long positions for PEPE than shorting the coin in the last 24 hours, which suggests a pivot towards bullish sentiment.


The price increase has also resulted in a rise in PEPE’s social activity. The number of mentions of the coin in top crypto-focused social channels reached a 3-week high on April 23rd.
