Ethereum

The largest altcoin Ethereum (ETH) is slowly approaching $3,000. Over the past 24 hours, the ETH exchange rate has strengthened by another 2.34% to $2916.

Cryptocurrency capitalization over the past seven days has increased by more than 15% to $349.667 billion.

At the beginning of last week, traders began to massively send ether for offline storage.

For example, on March 15, investors withdrew more than $500 million in ETH from cryptocurrency exchanges.

A total of 180,000 coins left the exchanges last Tuesday, according to the IntoTheBlock platform, the largest cryptocurrency outflow since October 2021, analysts stressed.

They also noted that a few days after such a massive withdrawal of ether, the value of the altcoin skyrocketed by about 15%.

Experts do not exclude that the reduction in the ETH exchange balance contributes to the formation of a cryptocurrency deficit. This situation will inevitably provoke a rebound of the altcoin.

In addition to the outflow of ether from exchanges, investors accumulate cryptocurrency in the ETH 2.0 deposit contract.

Almost 9% of the total supply of digital currency is already locked in the contract, which also contributes to easing pressure from sellers.
