AXS, YGG and SAND token holders are likely anticipating announcements or updates during the event, therefore large wallet addresses of these tokens have accumulated the assets consistently over the past few weeks and months.
Activity of whale wallets influences the prices of these assets as the top 20 addresses holding AXS, YGG and SAND account for 96.76%, 93.26% and 80% of the token’s total supply, respectively. Whale wallet activity, therefore, has an influence on these assets’ prices.
Crypto intelligence provider Lookonchain identified whale wallets that scooped up these assets from centralized exchanges. According to Lookonchain data, a whale wallet withdrew 25,871 AXS tokens worth $158,000 from a crypto exchange KuCoin, on November 15.

Whale wallets “0x6dd2” and “0xefc2” withdrew 1.11 million YGG (worth $440,000) and 650,961 YGG (worth $257,000) from Binance. The withdrawals by the two whale wallets reduced the selling pressure on the YGG token, supporting a bullish thesis.
A whale wallet “0x3166”, withdrew 1.02 million SAND tokens (worth $434,000) from Binance on November 16. The activity of whale wallets ahead of the YGG Web3 Games Summit is fueling a bullish thesis for the tokens’ holders. It remains to be seen whether whales will engage in profit-taking during or after the event or continue accumulating in response to announcements and updates from the projects during the summit.
