According to data provided by Santiment, despite volatility on ETH, the mean Coin Age of ETH continues to grow steadily, indicating an accumulation trend. Mean Coin Dollar Age is the average age of all coins/tokens on the blockchain weighted by the purchase price. This indicator enables estimation of the Long-Term Holders' portion.
This might also suggest large Ethereum addresses are still accumulating funds on the market despite the suppressed performance of the cryptocurrency.
Per CoinMarketCap data, at a present price of $2,980, Ethereum has dropped by almost 50% from its all-time highs. The reasons behind it are the general correction on the market and risk-off tendencies on the financial markets.

As U.Today previously reported, more than 10 million ETH have already been moved from the circulating market supply as ETH staking grows. Eight figures of Ether are now deposited into the contract, which allows receiving stable income with a certain amount of Ether that gets locked for a minimum of a three-month period. As Coinbase previously reported to its users, after a full switch to a proof-of-stake network, the APY is going to increase from 5% to 12%.
Ethereum bulls look to surmount a significant barrier at $3,000 as the community prepares for the merge of the Ethereum mainnet with the proof-of-stake Beacon Chain. Last week, Ethereum developers successfully tested the long-awaited merge of the programmable blockchain's proof-of-work and proof-of-stake chains, dubbed Eth 2.0.
With the merge test run completed successfully, researchers expect the mainnet launch to happen by the end of June. Observers foresee increased institutional adoption once the Eth 2.0 upgrade is complete.
