In a recent tweet, Santiment on-chain data provider has shared that the number of ETH transfers while the participating addresses were at a loss exceeded that of when wallets were in profit by roughly 3.4 times.
That was the biggest increase of this ratio over the past 3.5 years (since mid November 2018).
Santiment team believes that this may be a sign of Ethereum bottoming out.
? On the #Ethereum network, there were about 3.4 times as many transactions taken while coins were at a loss compared to in profit, on Friday. This was the highest day, in terms of $ETH's capitulation trading ratio since Nov 18, 2018, or 3.5 years ago. https://t.co/Y7YKjknv7L pic.twitter.com/hXLkHsgFB2— Santiment (@santimentfeed) May 7, 2022
