Recently, several altcoins have seen significant moves by crypto whales, indicating a surge in investors’ interest.

Hex (HEX) Remains Trending Upwards

Richard Heart’s baby, Hex, has been the subject of much debate in the crypto world. Despite this, it continues to climb, with the highest level of whale transactions occurring yesterday, excluding February 9, and a mid-sized correction on that day.

It won’t be surprising if history repeats itself for a few more days.

Are Crypto Whales Cashing Out of Paxos Standard (USDP)?

The recent SEC lawsuit against Paxos Standard’s owned BUSD stablecoin has caused significant shifts in asset trading.

The major spikes in Paxos Standard can be attributed to this lawsuit, with fluctuations likely to continue as more stories break around this issue.

The Sandbox has been on a tear of its own, turning heads with a significant increase in prices.

Recently, it marked the third-highest crypto whale spike in the past three months as prices continued to rise. This may increase the likelihood of a short-term correction.
