On 10 February, the largest APE staking address received 300,000 APE from Binance, which was worth $1.7 million. However, during the latest bull rally in 2023, investors sold their tokens at a comfortable margin of profit. This increased selling pressure was the main reason for APE’s recent price decline.
Despite the decline, recent data suggested the possibility of a trend reversal as the selling pressure might come to an end. Lookonchain also pointed out that Machi Big Brother bought 10,000 APE for 52,910 USDT.

Are ApeCoin investors accumulating?
As per Santiment’s data, APE’s supply held by top addresses registered an uptick in the last week, which showed that the investors were accumulating APE when its price was lucrative. APE’s exchange outflow also spiked quite a few times in the last seven days, which was a positive development.
Moreover, APE’s daily active address and network growth followed the trend of the bull market, reflecting a larger number of users in the network. However, APE’s MVRV Ratio was considerably lower, suggesting the possibility of a further price decline.

Concerns still remain
Though a few metrics looked optimistic, APE’s daily chart showcased some concerns. For instance, APE’s Relative Strength Index (RSI) registered a downtick, which was a development in the bears’ favor. APE’s Chaikin Money Flow (CMF) also followed a similar path and was heading further below the neutral mark, increasing the chances of a continued downtrend.
Lastly, the Exponential Moving Average (EMA) Ribbon provided much-needed hope as its data revealed that the bulls still had the upper hand in the market.
