Are Ethereum Whales Preparing for a Merger?
Earlier this month, Crypto analytics firm Santiment revealed that Ethereum whales appeared to be accumulating ETH as the price of the major altcoin surged to its highest level since June. The price spike is likely due to the announcement of the ETH 2.0 upgrade in September.
“Ethereum surged above $1,880 after Wednesday’s positive CPI report. The two-month high was accompanied by a massive influx of ETH transactions worth over $100,000. appears to be accumulating.”
In particular, we also see activity on exchange addresses. According to a report documenting activity over the past three months, Ethereum assets in non-swapped addresses fell by 11%. At the same time, whales’ on-exchange address holdings increased by a whopping 78%.
“Ethereum has seen an increase in supply held by top exchange addresses and it makes sense for traders to dump their holdings onto the larger exchanges during the 2022 slide. Bullish signal. As such, note the decline in top ETH exchange address holdings.” Santiment reported on August 3rd.
ETH is currently transitioning at 1,545.73 USD, down 0.54% on the day.
