Ethereum Rises Amid Spot ETF Filings, Whale Activity, And Staking Milestones

Ethereum is currently the top trending token in the cryptocurrency market, following the filing of updated S-1 forms for Spot Ethereum ETFs by major financial players including Fidelity, VanEck, Franklin, 21Shares, Grayscale, and BlackRock.

Ethereum’s market value has climbed to $3,080, positioning it to potentially separate itself from the broader altcoin market.

Despite reclaiming the $3,000 mark, Ethereum faces significant resistance around $3,200. Approximately 2 million addresses that previously traded ETH at this level are now at a loss, potentially ready to sell as they break even. However, bullish news, such as the approval of Ethereum ETFs, could prevent this sell-off and serve as a catalyst for further gains.

On-chain reports indicate that a whale or institution withdrew 16,449 ETH (worth $50.3 million) from Binance as Ethereum’s price rebounded above $3,000. This marks the whale’s first large ETH accumulation, with all the ETH moved to a new wallet where they are currently held.

Justin Sun-suspected Wallet Address Buys Additional Ethereum ETH 

In another significant transaction, a suspected address associated with Justin Sun bought 1,614 ETH through 1inch at an average cost of $3,101, valued at $5 million. This address subsequently deposited 20,000 ETH into Aave. Since April 17, this address has accumulated a total of 65,878 ETH.

Additionally, the ETH2 Beacon Deposit Contract, which is used for staking deposits for Ethereum 2.0, now holds an all-time high of 47.36 million ETH. This amount represents 33.9% of the total supply, more than tripling from the 10.9% it held two years ago.

These developments underscore Ethereum’s strong market activity and growing institutional interest. As Ethereum continues to attract significant investments and staking participation, the approval of Spot Ethereum ETFs could further propel its market performance, reinforcing its status as a leading cryptocurrency.
