Institutional investors are companies or organizations who invest in financial assets, and cryptocurrencies aren’t excluded from it. 2021 was the year when Bitcoin got adopted by institutional investors, like MicroStrategy and its CEO Michael Saylor, the company owning the most Bitcoins. Other industry giants shortly followed, like Elon Musks’ Tesla, Square of Jack Dorsey and Paypal.
Three Bitcoin ETFs also got approved by the Securities and Exchanges Commission (SEC) in the USA. Those big investors have a lot of weight on the market, which leads to the nickname « whales ». It is important to follow their portfolio movements in order to better anticipate price variations of the assets they possess.
Crypto wallets are anonymous, but it is possible to observe the transactions done by them. Our system identifies these institutional movements and identifies the wallet to their respective whale.
