In a recent development that has sent ripples across the crypto market, a notable Ethereum (ETH) whale has reportedly initiated a sell-off of a significant amount of the digital asset, totaling a staggering $38 million.

According to the tweet by Lookonchain, the whale's decision to offload 11,892 ETH, equivalent to $38 million, onto the Binance exchange for sale, has sparked widespread attention and speculation. Notably, this move follows a series of trading activities by the whale, who had previously taken long positions on Ethereum futures. However, the recent deposit for sale marks a significant reversal in their trading strategy, suggesting a shift in sentiment or a reevaluation of market conditions.

The tweet further elucidates the whale's trading history, revealing that since March 20, the individual had undertaken long positions on Ethereum futures on three separate occasions. However, two of these instances resulted in losses, amounting to a cumulative deficit of approximately $4.63 million. This sequence of events underscores the volatility inherent in cryptocurrency markets and the inherent risks associated with trading strategies, even for seasoned investors.

Ethereum price struggles continue

Meanwhile, the broader Ethereum market has been grappling with its own set of challenges. As of the latest data available, Ethereum is currently trading at $3,178, reflecting a decline of 3.86% over the past 24 hours. This downward movement in price underscores the prevailing bearish sentiment that has gripped the crypto landscape in recent sessions, with Ethereum mirroring the broader market trend.

Adding to the complexity of the situation, data from CoinGlass highlights a significant uptick in liquidations within the Ethereum ecosystem. Over the past 24 hours, liquidations totaling $25.94 million have been recorded, signaling heightened volatility and market activity. Of this total, $20.34 million pertains to liquidations in long positions, while $5.60 million represent liquidations in short positions, indicating a diverse range of market participants affected by recent price movements.
