According to a recent update from Whale Alert, a dormant pre-mining address containing nearly $21.9 million worth of Ethereum (ETH) has been reactivated. This is the first pre-mining Ethereum address to be activated in June.

In May, two such addresses, holding $325,535 and $5.9 million respectively, were also unexpectedly activated. April saw the activation of one address created before the launch of the genesis block. For comparison, three such activations were recorded in March, five in February, and two in January, all involving pre-mined addresses returning to activity after years of dormancy.
