IntoTheBlock on-chain data company has tweeted that, this week, it has noticed a steady increase in the volume of massive ETH transfers.

On April 9, the largest Ethereum transfer was 708,000 ETH, while yesterday, on April 13, the biggest transaction already carried 2.2 million ETH.

This uprise in transactions was noticed after the recently implemented Shapella upgrade on Ethereum, which included the Shanghai upgrade. The latter now allows stakers to withdraw their ETH from the Beacon Chain deposit contract.
