Prior to the price of PEPE skyrocketing, Lookonchain observed several crypto whales snatching up the coin and profiting tremendously.
A recent observance has revealed that a trader made a significant profit from investing in PEPE and MEME coins. The trader bought four trillion PEPE tokens for 2.1 ETH ($4,410) just six hours after the token was listed and later sold 3.27 trillion of those tokens for $906,000 while holding onto 700 billion PEPE tokens valued at $808,000. The trader utilized a strategy of selling part of their holdings after each price surge in PEPE rather than selling all at once.
