However Bearish sentiments have once again hit the number two crypto asset and it is trading at a price of $1,020.92, 9.50% down with a market cap of $123,872,288,330.
Well known market analyst Ali Martinez quoting data from Glassnode, said that there has been a huge surge in ETH exchange supply on the exchanges recently.
He added that 200,000 $ETH. Worth over $200 million, have been sent to known cryptocurrency exchange wallets over the past five days.
Ethereum could be into another steep price correction episode as per Ali Martinez. There has been a steep rise in ETH addresses that have come under losses with the recent correction.
This could trigger another sell-off. There are 468,000 addresses with more than 7 million #ETH which are in the red and a spike in selling pressure could trigger a downswing to $700 or even $600.

Ethereum shark and whale addresses (holding between 100 to 100k $ETH) have collectively added 1.1% more of the coin’s supply to their bags on this -39% dip.
