Whales have been actively accumulating and growing their holdings by purchasing at a discount in response to the tumultuous trading action seen since the beginning of 2022. On July 4, digital assets showed mild signs of recovery following lackluster trading in the past week. At the time of publication, the price of XRP was $0.324, up 3.80% in the last 24 hours.
Market partly rebounds
Bitcoin and altcoins slightly rebounded, with several tokens adding value at press time. Dogecoin (DOGE) was up slightly by 4.28% to trade at $0.068.
The total market capitalization also stood at $883 billion at press time. Over the weekend, on-chain analytics firm Santiment reported that most crypto assets have reached historic MVRV levels, or "pain" thresholds, in their trading returns when a price turnaround to alleviate current losses may be anticipated. However, it remains difficult to predict when this will occur, Santiment noted.
