Another significant purchase occurred on June 8. An unidentified whale bought 231.64 billion PEPE worth approximately $2.9 million from Kraken. Lookonchain reported that this transaction builds on a string of purchases.

These significant purchases happened when PEPE’s price had been consolidating lately. PEPE witnessed a notable rally in late May due to renewed interest in the broader meme coin sectors, fueled by financial analyst The Roaring Kitty’s comeback.

After reaching its all-time high record at $0.00001717 on May 27, PEPE consolidated around the $0.00001490 and $0.00001340 range. However, on June 7, its price fell to $0.00001277 and momentarily dipped to $0.00001198.

According to BeInCrypto’s previous analysis, the meme coin tumbled to $0.00001277 because it failed to maintain its support at $0.00001369. PEPE now has strong support around the $0.00001218 area. Its future trajectory will depend on whether it can trade above or break below this support.
