Whales Boost Ethereum Holdings With $1 Billion Accumulation Amid ETF Anticipation

During a recent market downturn, Ethereum whales capitalized on the opportunity, amassing an impressive $1 billion in holdings. Cryptocurrency analyst Ali’s data for December revealed a consistent upward trend, showcasing an increase of over 410,000 ETH in holdings by Ethereum whales.

Current on-chain reports from Lookonchain highlight ongoing whale activity, with a notable instance of a whale making substantial Ethereum purchases from Binance. The whale withdrew 9,705 ETH ($22.9 million) from Binance and subsequently deposited it into Compound. 

Taking a bullish stance, the whale borrowed 12 million USDT to further acquire additional ETH. The trading activity involved three transactions, with two of them proving profitable and resulting in a $5 million profit.

More Ethereum Whales To Monitor

In a separate move, another whale expressed optimism about Ethereum while adopting a bearish stance on Bitcoin. This whale borrowed 241 WBTC ($11 million) from Aave in the past few hours and exchanged it for 4,677 ETH ($11 million).

These strategic moves by Ethereum whales reflect a prevailing sentiment in the market, anticipating positive developments such as the potential approval of Ethereum Exchange-Traded Funds (ETFs). As anticipation for ETF approval grows, investors and large holders seem keen on bolstering their Ethereum positions, signaling confidence in the cryptocurrency’s future trajectory.

The proactive behavior of whales in accumulating substantial ETH holdings underscores the dynamic nature of the crypto market and the strategic considerations made by significant players in response to evolving market conditions and regulatory developments.
