On Tuesday, January 19, Ethereum (ETH) broke past $1400 resistance hitting its new all-time high of $1430 with a strong bullish sentiment. With this move to ATH, the Ethereum market cap also surged all the way to $163 toppling banking giants like Wells Fargo, Citi Group, and Morgan Stanley.
However, ETH has registered a partial retracement and is currently trading around $1350 with a market cap of around $154 billion. But several on-chain indicators also suggest that we might just be getting started with the Ethereum rally at the moment.
The signs of Ethereum (ETH) accumulation are very clear as over as the ETH coins have been steadily flowing out of exchanges. As per the below chart, over 530K ETH worth $740 million moved out of the exchanges in a single day.
On the other hand, the Ethereum hash-rate is at an all-time high of 313.12 TH/s as ETH miners have been making a lot of money in recent times. At the same time, there’s a surge in the active Ethereum addresses while the miner balances have been declining notes on-chain data provider Santiment. The daily active addresses for doubled so far in 2021 to 550K and is sitting comfortably even at the new All-time high.
???? #Ethereum was able to crack its long-awaited #AllTimeHigh today, fueled by rising active addresses, declining miners balances, & coins moving off exchanges. These are some of the best indications that a rise is imminent. Congrats to the $ETH community! https://t.co/fjirQOomQh pic.twitter.com/azGc7k1AKJ

Another data from Santiment shows that Ethereum (ETH) price surges as some of the top non-exchange wallets jumped 21% in the tokens held over the last week. citing data from Dune Analytics, Spencer Noon also notes that 2.57 million ETH has been sent to the Ethereum 2.0 deposits contract. This is another sign of investor confidence in Ethereum’s next-generation upgrade.
Many analysts have hinted that institutional participation in Ethereum will grow this year post the launch of CME ETH Futures next month. Just as ETH hits an all-time high, the large ETH transactions above $100K is seven times smaller than during the 2018 ATH. This shows that whales and institutions haven’t participated aggressively yet.
