Santiment stressed that whale transaction spikes like these are often followed by ADA price reversal.
🐳 #Cardano's whales showed a flurry of transactions yesterday as prices were bottoming out to $0.40, between 8am and 12pm UTC. These spikes have very commonly indicated price direction changes for $ADA, and we're monitoring further whale activity closely. https://t.co/KKnjXVH8no pic.twitter.com/aRTfClg8qQ— Santiment (@santimentfeed) May 13, 2022
