Whale Wallet Analysis - Origin Protocol

Whale Wallet Analysis - Origin Protocol

By D3F1 | DeFi Box | 28 Oct 2020

Hello guys, I am back with another Whale Wallet Analysis for your pleasure and research.

I have previously conducted a similar analysis for AMPL, SNX, BASED, LINK, YFI, YFV, UNI, and WBTC - and they were quite well received, so I would love to continue this series for you.

The OGN rich list is accessible on the Etherscan page for anyone to see. 

As always, I have ignored all the contract addresses or any exchanges that might have holdings. In addition to this, I have ignored whales solely holding OGN as I am more interested in what other DeFi tokens they might be holding. 

In this analysis, I had to include a number of whales that hold less than $100K OGN but hold substantial amounts of other assets.

Following is a list of hand-picked OGN whales that I found - I hope you find it interesting;

#1 Whale

Whale #1 bought his OGN in early October through Binance. He is quite a large whale with a total of $2.3 million in crypto assets. The largest of his holdings are OMG with the rest spread between BAT and ETH. Surprisingly, this whale had not lent any of his assets to lending platforms and is not farming anything.

Whale #10 is a much smaller whale to the rest on this list with just $121K in total assets - the majority of which is in WETH.


Origin Protocol whales are extremely interesting to me. First of all, the majority of them are not lending to earn interest nor are farming any sort of DeFi protocol. On top of this, they seem to have a wide range of different tokens that they are all investing in. The typical coins here seem to be $NMR, $ENJ, $LINK, and $ZRX.
