Ethereum Whales Triggered Massive Transfer of 32,527 ETH Amid Market Volatility”

A collective group of Ethereum whales orchestrated a remarkable transfer of 32,527 ETH to various trading platforms.

Three long-term ETH traders (or possibly funds) deposited 32,527 ETH worth $109 million into CEXes within the past 24 hours.

Trader “0x213” deposited 12,500 Ethereum valued at $41.7 million into Kraken at a price of $3,339. This whale initially received 120,900 Ethereum from white-hat hacker Baylina.eth in July 2017 and currently holds approximately 12,200 Ethereum worth $40.9 million.

Another whale deposited 12,500 Ethereum worth $39.1 million into Binance at approximately $3,374. This whale received Ethereum for the first time in December 2017 and deposited all 32,600 ETH into Binance at around $3,312, worth $108 million. They have withdrawn $80 million in the past three days.

The third whale, “Metalpha,” deposited 8,427 Ethereum worth $28.2 million into Binance at $3,347. This whale received Ethereum for the first time in July 2021 and currently holds 62,300 WSTETH worth $242 million.

The timing of this transfer is particularly intriguing as it follows Ethereum’s surpassing of the $4,000 mark and subsequent significant decline. The recent move by the whales has sparked speculation: “Did the whales believe that the recent correction is still insufficient?”
