According to information shared by crypto analyst Ali, Cardano whales seem to be making radical moves. Whales, or large holders, are typically known to utilize periods of dips or consolidation to accumulate crypto assets at a discount, and this seems to be holding for Cardano whales.
According to IntoTheBlock data shared by Ali, Cardano whales or large holders have scooped up 560 million ADA worth $218.4 million in the past two weeks.
On April 3, Ali made a specific categorization as he reported that Cardano whales holding 1 million to 10 million ADA had bought nearly 150 million ADA worth $57 million since February.
At the time of writing, ADA was marginally up in the last 24 hours to $0.388. While ADA's price consolidates, Ali believes ADA has the potential to move to $0.60 if a textbook head and shoulders pattern on its daily chart is validated.
