  • Ethereum has broken into the $2,300 price range for the first time in over a year.
  • Non-exchange wallets now hold over 54 million ETHs.

Ethereum [ETH] has entered a fresh price range, marking the first shift in over a year. This new range has created an opportunity for a sustained price increase, as shown by the accumulation of various top addresses.

Ethereum’s top addresses display different accumulation patterns

Recent data from Santiment showed different accumulation patterns between top exchange and non-exchange Ethereum addresses in the past few months.

A detailed analysis of the accumulation trend showed that top non-exchange addresses have been piling Ethereum across various price ranges.

Due to this, the volume of ETH held by these addresses has steadily increased. Presently, these non-exchange addresses collectively hold over 54 million ETH.

In contrast, the accumulation behavior of top exchange addresses was different. The data showed that these addresses sell their holdings during price rises.

As of this writing, top exchange addresses currently hold around 9 million ETH.

According to Santiment’s chart, the combined holdings of these top addresses represent around 38% of the total Ethereum supply.

This different accumulation pattern could influence the upward movement of ETH prices. The stability of non-exchange addresses showed a  lower likelihood of engaging in sell-offs.

In contrast, the profit-driven behavior of exchange addresses showed the likelihood of selling once there was a price increase. The exchange addresses capitalize on price peaks for profit-taking.
