Ethereum's non-exchange whales currently hold $23.7 million in ETH. At the same time, Santiment data further shared how ETH's top 10 exchange addresses have recorded a 0.2% increase in accumulation. Presently, these exchange whales are holding around 8.7 million ETH.

ETH price activity

Ethereum's price activity has been volatile as of late. The token has been hovering in between the $1300-$1600 price range despite the fact that the token's burn mechanism has improved significantly after the blockchain's transition from proof of work to proof of stake.

Despite Ethereum's current price action, large amounts of ETH being scooped up by Ethereum whales is generally a bullish indicator.

Planet Crypto earlier reported on how whales have been aggressively accumulating large amounts of Bitcoin and Ethereum with the intention of "hodling" the purchased crypto tokens.

Thanks to Binance's zero-fee Bitcoin trading many traders and whales have taken advantage of the exchange's discount.

With Bitcoin and Ethereum's recent price rally many speculators anticipate the top 2 cryptocurrencies to spend some time above their old resistance levels before their next move.
