Between the start of August this year to around the end of September, whales’ supply of (USDT) has been rising, and their supply of Bitcoin (BTC) was falling. However, the trend recently reversed over the last week as BTC whales’ supplies have been rising while their Tether (USDT) supplies have been falling.

Whales were most likely building up their USDT balances to pump BTC’s price, which would subsequently change the longer-term market cycle of the broader crypto market. The fact that the USDT and BTC balances of market whales altered how they did at the time could be more than coincidental, as October is known to be a positive month for crypto.

Whales may be moving now to pump BTC’s price, which will have a livening effect on the rest of the crypto market. At the time of writing, the crypto market leader is trading at $20,178.86 following a 2.84% increase in price over the last 24 hours, according to CoinMarketCap.
