Analyzing Ethereum’s Supply on Exchanges
AMBCrypto’s analysis of Ethereum’s exchange supply revealed a recent fall in the volume of assets held on exchanges. The chart indicated a notable reduction, which started around 23 October.
During this period, the supply fell from over 10.7 million to around 10.6 million ETH.
Furthermore, the decline suggested that more ETH was being withdrawn from exchanges. What this could mean is increased confidence in a sustained price uptrend and a desire to accumulate holdings.
Additionally, at the time of this writing, the Supply on Exchanges remained at around 10.6 million ETH. However, the chart also showed that it was approaching the 10.7 million mark.
Furthermore, AMBCrypto’s analysis of Glassnode’s Exchange Netflow chart revealed a consistent trend of outflows from exchanges. The chart showed that over the past few days, the volume of assets leaving exchanges had surpassed the inflow.
This data underscored the magnitude of withdrawals Ethereum has experienced across various exchanges. Also, it showed a strong movement of ETH away from these platforms.
Whale transactions pick up
A further analysis of Ethereum’s whale transactions involving amounts exceeding $100,000 and $1 million on Santiment showed a notable surge in activity. When examining transactions exceeding $100,000, the data indicates a total of 179 such transactions.
