Dogecoin has begun to attract the largest crypto whales once again, and the price has soared by over 9% since yesterday.
DOGE price spikes along with whales' interest
A tweet recently published by @WhaleStatsBSC says that Dogecoin has reentered the list of the top 10 most actively bought cryptocurrencies among the 500 biggest wallets on the Binance Smart Chain (BSC, also well known as BNB Chain).
Dogecoin is now on that list, along with other popular altcoins — XRP, FIL and LUNA wrapped on BNB Chain. XRP, according to WhaleStats, is currently the most traded crypto by the biggest BSC whales, and ETH is the most widely held one.
