Analytics data vendor Santiment has published a tweet saying that Ethereum balances on multiple crypto exchanges have seen a historic drop.

The overall balance of the second largest cryptocurrency on crypto trading platforms has declined and went below 18 percent – that’s the lowest figure since November 2018.

Santiment believes that by moving their Ether out of exchanges into cold storage wallets, users have reduced the chances of a major ETH sell-off in the near future.

At the time of writing this article, Ethereum is trading at the $2,061 level. Earlier this year, ETH managed to hit an all-time high of $4,362 on May 12, as per the data provided by CoinMarketCap.
