Whales Are Transferring Their ETH
The superposition of the plummeting non-exchange wallet balances and the ETH transfer activities is a hint that Ethereum whales are accumulating ETH for trading later. In addition, the Ethereum 2.0 development and its final test net to be launched on the 4th of August, may have some effect on the on-chain features of Ethereum. Ethereum’s market capitalization stands at $29.64 billion and the daily trading volume is $7.82 billion. The Decentralised finance (Defi) protocols have also hugely contributed to the growing user base as well as the daily trading volumes of Ethereum.
Bitcoin’s Price Hike This Week May Have Influenced Ethereum’s Price Pump
In the Q2 of this year, the total transaction of the DeFi protocols rose to $12 Billion. Ethereum Dapps accounted for a total of 82% out of this $12 billion volume. Bitcoin’s spike in its price this week may have influenced Ethereum’s price pump. Right now, BTC is trading at $9,471.77 down by 0.36% in the last 24 hours and the daily high being $9,551.00.
According to an analyst, since July 21st Ethereum has been in the resistance range of $249.195–$253.556. If Ethereum bulls could help it climb over the range, then it is imminent that the price uptrend would continue. Another crypto analyst suggested that the total market capitalization of the cryptocurrency market will break out. And also added that it’s not going to be because of BTC but because of ETH.
