ETH holdings of the top ten Ethereum whales have dropped to a three month low. This is according to on-chain data courtesy of the team at Santiment.

Ethereum Investors Continue Accumulating ETH

At the same time, and according to Glassnode, the number of Ethereum addresses holding 100 or more ETH reached a new all-time high of 53,019. Additionally, the number of Ethereum addresses holding at least 32 ETH has also hit an all-time high value of 126,852.

Accumulation of ETH Hints of Investor Confidence and Adoption of Ethereum

Further dissecting the Ethereum statistics from the team at Glassnode, it can be concluded that Ethereum investors are accumulating ETH due to several reasons.

Firstly, those holding over 100 ETH are probably playing the long game with Ethereum once staking goes live on ETH2.0. One possibility is that they intend to commit the minimum 32 ETH or all their Ethereum to staking. The same applies to those holding 32 ETH or more.

Secondly, in the case of addresses holding at least 0.1 ETH, this amount of funds could be an indication of both adoption (in DeFi)  and accumulation in anticipation of Ethereum gaining in the crypto markets.

In conclusion, the fact that several Ethereum investors are staying put with their holdings is a confirmation that they anticipated brighter days ahead for the value of ETH and the growth of ETH2.0.
