When we took a look at the MATIC token on December 20, we discussed how Polygon (MATIC) made bullish gains but retreated shortly after.
On December 23, we saw an official post on the Twitter page of WhaleStats, that an ETH whale bought 4,000,000 MATIC tokens, which were, at the time of the purchase, valued at $10,160,000 USD.
However, this was just the start of the buying spree, as afterward, a second whale bought 1,000,000 MATIC for $2,690,000 USD.
This was followed by another whale that bought 747,594 Matic for $1,996,077 USD and another whale that bought 579,116 Matic for $1,511,493 USD.
