The below graph shows all of the top 10 wallets since Epoch 6, and the deposited amount in USD is clearly visible there, we can see that there is a great deal of amount deposited with a single wallet, with some amounts reaching 2 million. When we consider that wallet as a whale, the others are average accounts. From the charts above, it is clear that most of these accounts are average Solana accounts, and there are only a few whale accounts on this BTC volt account.
From the above analysis,
- There are 168 unique wallets deposited into BTC covered call Volt since Jan 28th 2022 to Mar 18th 2022(Epoch 6).
- On Jan 28th 2022, we see that a large amount of deposits was deposited, and then gradually that amount was reduced over the next few weeks.
- The top 10 wallets accounted for almost three-quarters of total BTC transfers (USD) via 5XgStSeDe22PVKojnuHaoboNGiJxgeszhLHsQYAgEBvs wallets.
- From this list, we can observe that, out of the top 10 wallets, only one contributes more than 81% of deposited funds. If we consider this wallet a whale, the others are average. Therefore, it is evident that most of these accounts are average Solana accounts, and there are only a few whale accounts on this BTC volt account.
