In a surprising move, the largest buyer of ARB tokens on the first day of listing, a mysterious whale, has transferred all 9.94 million ARB tokens, now worth $17 million, to Binance, reports Lookonchain. The transfer, which is usually associated with an intention to sell, comes after the price of the Arbitrum token surged by 40% in the last week, making it the third most profitable cryptocurrency of the week among the top largest cryptocurrencies in terms of market cap, according to CoinMarketCap.
