Ethereum Number of Addresses Holding Over 10,000 ETH Just Reached 2-Year Low

There is an indication of a decrease in the number of large holders of Ethereum (ETH), the second-largest cryptocurrency by market capitalization, according to the latest report.

Glassnode specifically stated that Ethereum addresses holding over 10,000 ETH has now dropped to 1,082.

The latest scenario indicates that there has been a drastic decrease in the number of Ethereum whales over the last two years. This could either imply that large holders are selling off their assets due to the lethargic growth of ETH over the same period or they are sharing their assets into smaller addresses.

Ethereum on Exchanges Just Reached 5-Year Low

A similar but positive report from Glassnodes has stated that Ethereum (ETH) has been flowing out of exchanges in numbers over the past 5 years.

According to Glassnodes, ETH on exchanges is currently at a 5-year low of 14,740,830.732 ETH. The platform added that the previous 5-year low of 14,741,838.489 ETH was observed on the 25th of August. This implies that about 1,007 ETH were moved away from exchanges over the last 24 hours.

Glassnodes tweeted, “Ethereum ETH Balance on Exchanges just reached a 5-year low of 14,740,830.732 ETH. Previous 5-year low of 14,741,838.489 ETH was observed on 25 August 2023.”

It’s generally known that is a positive fundament for an asset being continuously moved out of exchanges to self-hosted wallets. This certainly reduces the chances of being sold off on the open market.
