Recently, a notable Ethereum whale, identified by the address “0x2c74”, has been making waves with substantial withdrawals from the popular cryptocurrency exchange, Kraken.
Just 9 hours ago, this Ethereum whale withdrew 1,269 ETH, equivalent to approximately $2.3 million. This transaction, however, is just the tip of the iceberg. Over the past week, the same address has withdrawn a staggering total of 24,930 ETH, valued at around $44.6 million, from Kraken.
This whale’s activity is part of a larger trend. Three fresh wallets have collectively withdrawn a total of 86,520 ETH, equivalent to approximately $150 million, from Binance and Kraken in the past week.
The address “0x5bA3” withdrew 35,860 ETH from Binance and subsequently transferred these funds to a contract address. Meanwhile, “0x7c82” withdrew 27,000 ETH from Binance. The aforementioned “0x2c74” rounds out this trio with a withdrawal of 23,660 ETH from Kraken.
These substantial movements of Ethereum are indicative of the significant influence that whales can exert on the cryptocurrency market. As these large-scale investors continue to shift their holdings, the potential for market volatility increases. It remains to be seen how these recent transactions will impact the Ethereum market in the days and weeks to come.
