A crypto whale is an investor or a wallet that holds a large amount of a certain crypto asset. Whale or large-scale transactions are tracked by many in the crypto community and are often considered an indicator of where the price is headed next.

Bitcoin whale movements towards exchanges are considered a bearish signal while a move away from exchanges is considered bullish for the asset.
