Following the accumulation, the address has become the 20th biggest DOGE holder.
A Dogecoin (DOGE) whale just accumulated up to 450 million tokens valued at $39.41 million in two recent transactions, subsequently climbing to the 20th position on the list of the biggest DOGE holders. The assets were sent from a Crypto.com wallet.
This accumulation has occurred when the asset is leveraging the recent market-wide rally to recover losses of the past few days, as an increase in weighted sentiment triggers a surge in demand from investors.
Lookonchain, a blockchain surveillance resource, called public attention to the transactions in a tweet today. According to the disclosure, the whale received 250 million DOGE from a wallet affiliated with the Singapore-based exchange Crypto.com. Data from Bitinfocharts reveals that the transaction occurred today at 10:23 (UTC).

These transactions are part of an accumulation trend some DOGE whale addresses have recently embarked on amid the price uptick. Blockchair data reveals that a newly-activated address amassed a whopping 53.1 million DOGE ($4.65 million) today at 11:47 (UTC). Shortly before this, another address was seen to have accumulated 92.2 million tokens ($8.04 million).
DOGE Sentiment Hits a 4-Month High
This whale accumulation campaign has picked up when bullish sentiments surrounding Dogecoin are seeing a surge. Seasoned analyst Ali Martinez highlighted this uptick, citing Santiment data. Data from a Santiment chart reveals that weighted sentiment around DOGE had reached 6.199, a value last seen in October 2022 when the asset rallied by 160%.

Social volume has also increased, reaching a high value of 4317, its highest point this year. This is a testament to the surge in the asset’s social activity, particularly following billionaire Elon Musk’s tease of a new Doge Twitter CEO yesterday.
Meanwhile, DOGE has gained by 1.49% in the past 24 hours, but it is trailing behind most assets despite the uptick in social activity. The asset changes hands at $0.08759 after facing slight rejection at the $0.088 price point.
