It is worth noting that this recent whale transaction marked only the third occurrence since the PHA token was introduced in 2020. The previous largest transactions were observed on 30 April 2020, involving 1 billion tokens, and on 31 August 2020, involving 908.98 million tokens.

The recent transaction on 20 April set the record for the third-largest trading volume since inception.

Phala exchange supply drops as active addresses stall

Although there was a surge in trade volume on 20 April, there hasn’t been a significant change in the exchange supply metric. However, there was a notable uptrend on 18 April, when the exchange supply rose to over 146 million.

The metric has since plateaued and remained relatively stable, with a current reading of around 146.28 million.

In contrast to the surge in trade volume, the latest development from the whales did not have a notable impact on the number of active addresses on the network.

According to Santiment data, the seven-day active addresses metric showed no significant activity in the last week. As of this writing, the number of active addresses was declining and stood at around 189.

Given the persistent decline in the price of the Phala (PHA) token, the recent transaction volume may indicate an accumulation phase among investors. Investors may be anticipating a potential increase in the token’s price in the coming weeks. However, it remains to be seen whether this will materialize or not.
