  • The staking rate rose from 14.13% on the day of the upgrade to 14.61% as of 19 April.
  • As per Nansen’s dashboard, just about 4.08% of the total locked ETH was waiting to be unstaked.

Since the successful launch of the Shapella Upgrade, Ethereum [ETH] exhibited bullish tendencies. The positive sentiment propelled the king of altcoin beyond the $2,000 level for the first time since May 2022, marking a year-to-date (YTD) gain of 76%.

At the time of writing though, ETH retraced to $1,949 as per CoinMarketCap, following the FUD triggered by SEC Chair Gary Gensler’s iffy response on the status of ETH.

However, this takes nothing away from the impetus provided by Shapella. Moreover, data from blockchain analytics firm Nansen revealed that the ETH inflows have started to surpass outflows. This indicated that users were restaking their rewards for better returns.

 

FUD around ETH staking wanes

As per Nansen, the total number of ETH staked reversed its downward trajectory since 17 April. This was marked by increasing deposits and falling withdrawals.

Data from CryptoQuant added more evidence to this assertion. The staking rate, or the percentage of eligible tokens that were being staked, rose from 14.13% on the day of the upgrade to 14.61% as of 19 April.

The confidence of users in ETH was also reflected in the withdrawal patterns. As per Nansen’s dashboard, just about 4.08% of the total locked ETH was waiting to be unstaked.

In a CNBC interview, Nansen research analyst Niklas stated that most stakers were applying for partial withdrawals of their accrued rewards and restaking them.

ETH poised for more gains

In what was a testimony to ETH’s bullish tendencies, the supply outside exchanges exceeded the exchange supply by a big margin, at the time of writing.

This ruled out concerns of an immediate sell-off, discussions around which heightened leading to the launch of Shapella.
