The accumulation has been ongoing since Dec. 23, when Bitcoin was trading in the $48,300 zone and began going down lower several days later. Since the start of 2022, BTC has plunged from the $48,100 level to the $33,500 low last seen in May 2021. This was the fastest accumulation since September 2019, according to Santiment.

By now, the Bitcoin price has propelled to $43,943 per CoinMarketCap.

Earlier this month, data shared by IntoTheBlock suggested that Bitcoin whales holding more than 1,000 BTC entered an active phase of accumulating the king crypto. The data agency commented that these wallets begin to buy when the price goes down.
