Ethereum Faces Major Outflows And Significant Whale Activity Amid Market Volatility

According to CoinShares, digital asset investment products experienced $30 million in outflows last week, marking the third consecutive week of outflows. Ethereum saw its largest outflow since August 2022, with a staggering $61 million, making it the worst-performing digital asset investment product so far this year.

Despite these outflows, a recent analysis by IntoTheBlock reveals that the supply of ETH held by long-term holders has reached an all-time high, nearly doubling since 2021. This indicates strong confidence in Ethereum’s long-term value, even amidst short-term market fluctuations.

A notable whale, who participated in the Ethereum ICO in 2015 and received 254,900 ETH at an ICO price of $0.311, transferred 7,000 ETH (worth $24.28 million) to Kraken yesterday after 209 days of inactivity. Currently, this whale still holds 40,000 ETH, valued at approximately $139.5 million.

Another Notable Ethereum ETH Sell-Off To Monitor 

In addition, the market witnessed significant trading activity by wintermute_t, who completed the sale of 12,695 ETH (around $43.84 million) on Binance. These ETH were transferred from various exchanges, including Coinbase, Kraken, and The previous day, they executed a similar movement, selling 12,608 ETH (approximately $44.27 million).

About an hour ago, the Ethereum Foundation sold 100 ETH for 343,934 DAI. Notably, since January 2024, the Foundation has sold 2,266 ETH for $6.56 million worth of DAI. This consistent selling by the Foundation could be part of a broader strategy to diversify its holdings or fund ongoing development projects.

These activities highlight the current volatility and mixed sentiments in the Ethereum market. While significant outflows and whale sales suggest some investors are taking profits or reducing exposure, the increasing supply held by long-term holders reflects enduring faith in Ethereum’s future prospects. As the market continues to evolve, these dynamics will be crucial to monitor.
