Only a few transactions from this list involved exchanges: 35,001 ETH were sent to the FTX platform, 43,731 got wired from Arbitum to FTX and 10,000 ETH went from Binance to an "unknown" wallet. This was the smallest of these massive transactions.

Whale Alert also reported a lot of transfers smaller than 10,000 ETH, sent to, from and between major crypto trading platforms, such as Binance, FTX, Gemini and Coinbase.
Overall, 415,610 ETH in 11 large transfers have been moved, and this amount of crypto is worth a staggering $1.3 billion in fiat.
Whale stocks up on wrapped Ether
This was the top 20 ETH whale, according to WhaleStats. However, the wETH in their portfolio is the minority as it is in the group of crypto marked as "other tokens," which constitute 9.92% here.

As per data shared in a recent tweet, the number of ETH wallets that hold more than 0.01 Ether has surged to a historic peak of 21,636,020.
