These significant trades by Ethereum whales might be a sign of strategic repositioning ahead of the anticipated Ethereum update and unlock. As uncertainty looms over the market, large retail traders are also seen deleveraging and closing positions, potentially indicating a mass derisking in preparation for the significant event.

The market's reaction to the upcoming Ethereum unlock remains uncertain, as the majority of investors are unsure about the consequences for the second largest cryptocurrency. At press time, Ethereum is trading at $1,870, with an insignificant 1% price change over the last 24 hours.
