Whale’s ARB windfall
Recent transactions include a whale known as gay_eth buying 1.4 million ARB for 1.61 million USDC at $1.15 per ARB. Afterward, the whale sold 12,000 ARB for 2.16 million USDC at a price of $1.53, which resulted in a profit of $550,000 from the deal.
Another whale with the identifier 0x8fe1 purchased about 730,977 ARB at a price of $1.37 using 1 million USDC. At a price of $1.51 each, the whale could sell his tokens for a total of $1.1 million USDC. It is believed that this whale brought in a profit of $105,000.
According to the cryptocurrency market monitoring website CoinMarketCap, ARB’s price increased significantly during the previous day, which most likely seemed to be the perfect buying opportunity for these ARB whales. After a 28.32% price gain over the last 24 hours, ARB is now changing hands for $1.53 at the time of this writing.
