Whale wallet also headed for Covalent (CQT), ranked 722 on CoinMarketCap, and purchased 3,090,000 tokens for $2,039,319.
The Covalent token, which the whale buys in astonishing amounts, offers an application programming interface package that allows developers to pull data from different blockchains. CQT continues to trade at $0.59 according to CMC data as of the time the content was written.
The Light buying spree continues with the play-earn blockchain platform Gala, another gaming token that raised over $1.1 million last week.
