PEPE sees massive spike in price as whales scoop up billions of meme coin tokens

Data from crypto intelligence tracker Lookonchain reveals that large wallet addresses have recently accumulated PEPE in large volumes.

Lookonchain noted similar actions of other whales. One whale wallet bought 840.86 billion PEPE tokens from Binance, worth nearly $5 million, while another wallet spent $2 million in stablecoins to buy 340.86 billion PEPE tokens on the exchange platform. 

Whale accumulation has likely influenced PEPE’s recent gains. On-chain metrics support the meme coin’s price rally. PEPE’s Active Addresses and Network Growth metrics are flashing positive signs for a sustained price rally in the meme coin.
