According to CryptoSlate data, Arbitrum (ARB) reversed its recent surge and fell by 12.69% in the last 24 hours.
The fall came at a time when Bitcoin (BTC) also fell below the $30,000 mark — pulling many altcoins down with it, including ARB.
Seven days before the time of writing, on April 12, ARB was being traded at around $1.167. The token started to surge after that and reached as high as $1.795 on April 18 — marking over a 53% increase in six days.
The surge was also noticed by whales as well. Data from April 18 revealed that whales have been trading ARB during the week of April 10 – 17.
As of April 18, there are 23 whale accounts that hold over 1 million ARB tokens. During the week, nine whale wallets cumulatively bought 12.4 million ARB tokens between $1.2 and $1.5. In the meantime, three whales sold a total of 22.8 million ARB from $1.37 and $1.69.
However, despite the weekly surge in ARB prices, CryptoSlate data indicates that the token price is 94.18% lower than 30 days ago.
