This rise indicates a growing trend of accumulation among addresses holding over 0.1% of the total Ethereum supply. In addition to this, the presence of these large holders suggests potential market confidence and long-term investment strategies within the Ethereum ecosystem.
The fact that whales continue to gather more ETH underscores their belief in the value and future prospects of the cryptocurrency. At press time, CoinMarketCap indicated that ETH was one of the cryptos trading in the green heading into the weekend.
