Data from Santiment on-chain data aggregator shows that one of the main reasons for such a big price jump is the recent activity of a large group of whales of a high tier.

These wallets, the company's analysts say, hold between 1,000 and 10,000 Bitcoins. Over the past two weeks, they have collectively bought $1.46 billion worth of BTC. That is equal to 64,638 coins.

Per a Santiment chart, these whales were actively selling their Bitcoins between February and December last year. Now, over the past 15 days, they resumed aggressive purchasing.
