A recent tweet by on-chain data agency Santiment has revealed an important driver that pushed the second largest crypto, Ethereum, up, helping it to regain the $1,800 price mark.
Report reveals what pushed Ethereum above $1,800
A recent X post by Santiment revealed that the major driver, moving ETH over $1,800 was the day when the biggest number of new wallets emerged since early October.
The analytics team of the company reckons that should the Ethereum network keep growing long-term with the ETH supply on exchanges declining further, “ETH has justification to cross $2,000 once again”. Currently, the supply of Ethereum remains at the lowest level since ETH Genesis.
