It seems whales who staked a lot of $ETH to the ETH 2.0 contract before the price surge, staked a ton of ETH to the contract again.
These whales seem to think the fair price for $ETH is higher than $3k in the long term. https://t.co/P8I8xnk0wp
“These whales seem to think the fair price for $ETH is higher than $3k in the long term.”
Earlier, U.Today reported that as of August 18, the overall amount of value locked in the Ethereum 2.0 contract equals 6,837,922 coins (as per the data provided by Glassnode). This is an equivalent of $20,854,089,377.
Besides, number of ETH new and non-zero wallets has surged to new major highs, as well as the amount of addresses that contain 1,000 Ethers or more.
ETH 2.0 contracts holds more Ether that Wrapped Ethereum
Santiment data aggregator has tweeted that the Ethereum 2.0 staking contract has become the largest Ethereum holder at the moment.
The tweet says that it also contains more ETH than WETH (Wrapped Ethereum).
At the time of writing, the second biggest crypto is merely holding above the $3,000 level. Earlier this month, the launch of the London hard fork on this blockchain sent ETH above $3,000 and up to the $3,000 zone as the community was encouraged by yet another step towards the complete implementation of Ethereum 2.0 upgrade.
