This address is the only non exchange wallet among the top three whale addresses. In their reaction to the activity of the whales still accumulating bitcoins, a user on Twitter, @0III62041407 said,
“If they keep accumulating BTC will get useless. Suddenly all BTC would be with whales and shitty companies like the one from Savior. No use cases and no interest for the rest of society.”
Another user, @wallstreetdebt used this analogy:
“If monkey collect all bananas in the world, monkey give banana value because there are no more bananas for other monkey. – real life example- the diamond industry.“
Like Fiat Like Crypto
@yyyyaoyyyao added that if this is the scenario, that BTC would be worse off for it since to the monkeys, bananas could be a priority more important than Bitcoin could be to people. @sheepdog315 said that if whales own most of the BTC in circulation, they may end up acting like banks. To which Stack Sats @BTC_Only_83 disagrees saying that whales are in no position to add to the supply.
The richest own most of the dollars in this country…
