Walrus-like investors appear to be hunting for Cardano (ADA) bargains as the DeFi protocols of the programable blockchain expand.

Cardano's (ADA) whale holdings hit a record high.

In the week ending February 12th, the total amount of ADA held by addresses with 1 million to 10 million active accounts reached a record high of 12 billion ADA ($9.72 billion), representing a 41 percent increase since the end of January.

During the course of a week, Cardano's Total Value Locked reached a new record high of $160.79 million. The SundaeSwap DEX holds more than 70% of the funds.

Whaling sales that took place in the beginning of September foreshadowed future strandings. As Outmuro pointed out, "These [whale] addresses had previously sold a large number of their holdings just before ADA began to crash.
