Data from the whale's address on the Polygon blockchain shows that this cryptocurrency owner held a whopping 71,451.559 coins in the past four months.

However, 125 days ago, he moved that crypto out of his wallet, presumably to sell it or convert it into a different crypto. Four hours ago, he also shifted 2,674,144 MATIC tokens to the Binance exchange.

At the moment, they hold 0.00936988 MATIC in their wallet.
