The last time this number of Ethers (ETH) was registered in this category was on Oct. 10, 2018. To provide context, this happened when Ethereum (ETH) was worth $230.
To some extent, this can be interpreted as a signal of confidence demonstrated by long-term holders of Ethereum (ETH) coins amid a bearish recession.
It also should be noted that the Ethereum (ETH) supply is increasing: as such, the 2018 high was more impressive in term of the share of the dormant Ether supply.
Ethereum (ETH) price rejected at $1,660 twice in 24 hours
On Nov. 4-5, the Ethereum (ETH) price spiked to its highest levels in seven weeks. Its local top was registered over $1,660 on major spot exchanges.
Besides an overall increase in cryptocurrency capitalization, the Ethereum (ETH) price spike can be attributed to the release of the updated post-Merge roadmap by Vitalik Buterin.
However, Ethereum (ETH) failed to expand this upsurge further: currently, the second cryptocurrency is changing hands at $1,580, being down 3% in 24 hours.
