The current upward trend of the crypto market has drawn the interest of large investors and institutions. As per a report from IntoTheBlock, there has been a significant rise in the volume of Bitcoin [BTC] and Ethereum [ETH] transactions exceeding $100,000.

The data presented in the tweet above indicated an 80% increase for BTC and a 170% increase for ETH. This suggested a rise in demand from institutional and large-scale investors as the prices of BTC and ETH climbed.
