On the same day, an unidentified wallet transferred 30,710 ETH, equivalent to about $56.78 million, to crypto exchange Binance, Onchain analyst Yu Jin reported. Since September 20, the same account has reportedly withdrawn a total of 42,311 ETH from Binance, equating to roughly $70.55 million. These transactions have been executed at an average price of around $1,667 per ETH. This suggests that Whale is possibly transferring coins to Binance to make a profit.

The ETH transfers have sparked many discussions and speculation about the reasons behind whales’ substantial actions. Market experts are keeping a close eye on the situation, striving to decipher the possible effects on the overall cryptocurrency landscape.
Ethereum Sees A Continued Uptrend
Ethereum has been experiencing a continuous price increase for almost seven days, bringing positive news for its investors. At the time of writing, it was trading around $1,800, showing a 3% price increase. This increase adds to the already notable 6% uptrend seen on October 24th. Remarkably, this continuous surge has pushed Ethereum into a strongly bullish position.
According to the latest data, the Relative Strength Index (RSI) showed that Ethereum is now in the overbought zone. While this suggested a bullish trend, it may also signal the potential for a price correction in the near future. Furthermore, the continued accumulation of ETH by Market whales could be a sign of a prolonged upward trend.
Ethereum and the broader crypto market have been experiencing an upswing, closely tracking the leading cryptocurrency, Bitcoin. The surge in price is a result of the growing hype about the potential approval of the Bitcoin spot ETF by the SEC regulator later this year.
