Basic Attention Token [BAT] has been gaining significant traction in the price activity even as the broader crypto market remained stuck in a consolidation phase. Several large-cap cryptocurrencies were trading in red.
As observed by the crypto analytic platform, Santiment, the Ethereum-based token surged by more than 58% on Saturday on the price front. This coincided with massive accumulation among the large BAT token holders. As the coins move to cold wallets, the amount of tokens held in exchange wallets are on a decline. This essentially indicated that the market players are bullish on BAT’s future price action. Providing further insights, the on-chain analytic platform noted,
Basic Attention Token jumped +59% Saturday, and one of the foreshadowing signals has been the rise of coins moving into the top 10 largest BAT non-exchange addresses, and away from the top exchange addresses. This key ratio often signals bullishness.
