Uniswap Whale Accumulation

Since May 2022 crash, Uniswap whale addresses have been accumulating a large number of UNI tokens in heavier percentages. The whale addresses with 100k to 1m UNI has seen a large accumulation spike in the last two weeks. Santiment reported:


Speaking of whales, the amount of large transactions (which we deem to be transactions valued at $100k or more) are rising back to May levels as well. We can clearly see the major clump of big whale transactions that began forming one week ago, just prior to the major price rise up to $9.69.

Furthermore, the active average trader returns for Uniswap have also shot up. The 30-day MVRV is currently up by more than 22.5%. Santiment notes that this is well above the ‘Danger Zone’ of +15% or more.

However, Santiment asks new investors to remain cautious after the sharp price surge recently. It notes:

Mid-term trading returns beginning to overflow, the good news is that long-term traders (in the 365-day MVRV) are still well under water. This means that there may be an upcoming downturn in the next week or two for UNI, but its future for the long-term still looks to be undervalued.
