  • Whales showed notable interest in ARB.

Realistic or not, here’s ARB’s market cap in BTC’s terms


Whaleing around

According to lookonchain’s data, over the past three days, a notable development occurred as five whales withdrew a combined amount of 10.5 million ARB ($13.5 million) from Binance. Among these withdrawals, a single whale removed 2.34 million ARB ($3 million) from Binance at the time of the latest update. This movement of funds by large investors may have positive implications for the ARB.

Analyzing the social landscape

The large number of withdrawals and the faith showcased by whales could improve the overall sentiment around ARB. At press time, the weighted sentiment of ARB was negative, which indicated that the overall outlook of the crypto community towards ARB was pessimistic.

The popularity of Arbitrum on the social front hadn’t seen any green either. According to data provided by LunarCrush, the number of social mentions and social engagements for Arbitrum fell by 70.2% and 72.6% respectively over the last week.
