Whale Watching: 7000 Bitcoin transfer tops the list

This week saw one of the lowest weeks in terms of total volume moved by whales totalling a mere $97.8 million in the top five. The top three cryptos all feature with a surprise altcoin making the list with a large $20.6m whale move. 

This week saw the rise of altcoins as the market recovery with mid to low cap coins saw some decent gains. One would assume with all the green in the market and coins jumping up 20% in some cases, that whale moves would be the order of the week. However, this week saw very little whale moves occur with the top five totalling a mere $97.8m in transactions.

The most notable surprise comes from a coin called Maximime Coin (MXM) which took second spot with a $20.6m whale move. The project is not very well known and is only tradable on CoinBene and HitBTC. Currently MXM ranks 81 on Coinmarketcap with a total market capitalization of $56.3 million.
