Memecoin Collector Becomes Largest Holder of Solana-Based Altcoin Before Bitcoin Halving: Lookonchain

Must read

A crypto whale that’s been dabbling in Solana (SOL)-based memecoins has become the largest holder of a dog-themed altcoin.

First spotted by blockchain tracking firm Lookonchain, a deep-pocketed entity has accumulated $4.29 million worth of PUPS, a cartoony animal-themed meme token.

PUPS was originally created for Bitcoin (BTC) Ordinals but also exists on the Solana blockchain.

Lookonchain says with the whale’s latest purchase worth more than half a million dollars, the entity has become Solana’s biggest holder of PUPS.

“This whale bought 8,862 PUPS ($512,000) at $58 again before the Bitcoin halving.

He has bought a total of 63,024 PUPS ($4.29 million), with an average buying price of $68, becoming the largest holder of PUPS on Solana.”

Lookonchain notes that the same whale also owns President Joe Biden-themed Jeo Boden (BODEN) and dog-themed dogwifhat (WIF).

Earlier this month, the firm witnessed Solana whales scooping up big discounts following a marketwide correction.

Lookonchain spotted one Solana whale that went in to accumulate sloth-themed Slerf (SLERF) and Pepe the Frog-themed Book of Meme (BOME) from crypto exchange Binance. Another deep-pocketed investor loaded up on BODEN using KuCoin.

Around the same time, the firm saw four other whales panic-sold the bottom or close to the bottom of last week’s correction, unloading a total of $12.41 million worth of WIF.
