Whales Sell These Altcoins: HODL Them!


The cryptocurrency market has returned some of its gains from the beginning of the week today. Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), and Cardano (ADA) have lost nearly 5% in value over the past 24 hours, with the total crypto market cap falling below $1.9 trillion. Meanwhile, Ethereum whales are divesting a number of altcoin projects, notably FTX Token (FTT), Polygon (MATIC), and Axie Infinity (AXS), according to WhaleStats data.
