Additionally, Lookonchain, an on-chain analytics firm, has reported that these transfers were sent to a single wallet address, indicating that a single crypto whale may have had a hand in the price surge.
On Thursday, a large quantity of the IMX token worth millions of dollars was transferred to a particular address, making it the ninth-largest holder of the token. Some IMX investors, including GSR Markets, decided to sell their holdings and take profit after the token’s price gained.
