According to Santiment data, Ethereum has seen a significant inflow into exchanges in recent weeks. According to data shared by crypto analyst Ali Martinez, 330,000 ETH valued at nearly $825 million have been moved into crypto exchange wallets in the last two weeks.
An increase of inflows to exchanges might suggest increased selling pressure resulting from decreased demand. As the asset is being put up for sale, this leads to its availability on exchanges and a consequent drop in price.
Amid the recent price volatility, Ethereum has declined more than 5% in the past 24 hours to touch intraday lows of $2,358. Ethereum trades at $2,394 at the time of publication.
In positive news, the popular photo-sharing app Instagram might soon allow the display of NFTs issued on Ethereum, Polygon, Solana and Flow free of charge.
