Ethereum exchange balance fell by 5% in two weeks

by in Cryptocurrency News


Over the past two weeks, the volume of ether on centralized crypto exchanges has fallen by about 5%. This conclusion was made by CryptoQuant analysts who studied the activity of traders.

The outflow of digital currency from trading floors eases the pressure on the asset from sellers. As a result, the value of the coin starts to rise due to its low supply.

Accordingly, if investors, on the contrary, prefer to increase their reserves on exchanges, then they are preparing to sell the cryptocurrency.

An increase in the exchange balance of a digital currency is a bearish signal, the researchers note.
