It also mentioned that over the past three months, top whale addresses had sent a significant amount of ETH onto exchanges.
Non-exchange addresses have declined 11%, while exchange-based addresses have surged by 78%.
Earlier last week, the exchange balance of Ethereum reached 21.96 million, the highest level in five months.
Also, an anonymous cryptocurrency wallet holding $69,500,418 of Ethereum transferred its funds onto Binance in the previous week. Abnormally large cryptocurrency transfers from wallets to exchanges are typically a bearish signal.
At the time of writing, ETH was trading at $1430.91, down almost 19% in the last seven days.
