The LUNA wormhole token became a top holding among the top 100 Ethereum whales in terms of U.S. dollars, flipping Lido Staked ETH (stETH) tokens, which led to the price rally.

According to WhaleStats, the LUNA wormhole token replaced Lido Staked ETH (stETH) as the largest holding in terms of dollars among the top 100 Ethereum whales. stETH was previously the largest holding.
