Experts of Glassnode, a leading on-chain analytical firm, noticed an interesting pattern in Ethereum's (ETH) supply distribution. Six months after the FTX collapse, one crucial metric revisited historic highs. Speculators might not be as powerful as they seem to be.

Long-term holders dominate Ethereum (ETH) supply

On-chain wallets that belong to long-term holders of Ethereum (ETH) are now responsible for 74% of its total available supply. "Diamond hands" accumulated a whopping 14,350,000 Ethers (ETH), latest Glassnode data says.

This impressive level has never been surpassed in the entire eight-year history of the second cryptocurrency. Besides growing confidence in bullish prospects for the ETH price, there is one more powerful catalyst that drives this upsurge.

In Glassnode, LTH metrics covers all coins that were not moved for at least 155 days. As such, in mid-May, Ethereum (ETH) wallets that were only active during the collapse of the FTX exchange will be mature enough to be included into this research.

The followers of the Glassnode account stressed that for Bitcoin (BTC), the largest cryptocurrency and the only token that exceeds Ethereum (ETH) by market cap, the long/short-term holder ratio looks just the same.

As of press time, it is struggling to protect the $1,900 level on major spot exchanges. In the last 24 hours, the Ethereum (ETH) price lost almost 3%.
