This positive change in sentiment is also noticeable when observing what whales (holders of large amounts of Bitcoin) are doing. Between December 17, 2018 and February 25, 2019 these whales accumulated over 150,000 Bitcoin (more than 500 million USD).
When looking at further data provided by the transparent Bitcoin blockchain we can see that the number of transactions per day grew by 66.91% from March 1, 2018 until today.
