  • ETH staking pool witnessed a rise in the number of one-time depositors 
  • ETH also managed to maintain its NFT trading volume as per data from Messari

The Ethereum [ETH] merge is set to come to an end, with its final upgrade — Shapella (Shanghai + Capella) — less than 36 hours away. The final event will let stakers withdraw their locked funds, thus enabling them to enter and exit their staking positions at any given point.

In anticipation of the Shapella upgrade, the ETH staking pool witnessed a surge in the number of one-time depositors. Data form Glassnode stated that staking pools usually witnessed recurring deposits.

However, that wasn’t the case anymore. Major events witnessed a spike in the number of one-time depositors.

Data from the Twitter handle glassnodealerts further pointed out that the number of addresses in profit reached a 16-month high of 66,500,400. This could be taken as a clear indication of budding investor interest in the king of altcoins ahead of the final upgrade.

Data from Santiment showed that ETH witnessed a slight surge in the volume and number of active addresses at the time of writing. At press time, the number of active addresses stood at 1.95 million and was extremely close to the figure it had been on the day before. Thus, nothing different from the usual.

Additionally, the volume on the ETH network did witness a slight spike as compared to the previous day. As of 10 April, ETH saw a volume uptick to stand at 7.77 billion. Additionally, the volume could witness a rise especially over the next day or two.

Glassnodealerts also reported that the total value in the ETH 2.0 Deposit Contract reached an all time high on 10 April. This was the second day in a row that the ETH 2.0 Deposit Contract reached an all time high. A surge of this kind indicated that the market was in favor of the altcoin. It also showed investor and trader confidence in ETH.

Furthermore, as per another update by glassnodealerts, ETH’s realized cap also reached a four-month high at the time of writing.

So where does that leave ETH then?

Considering the price front of ETH, at press time, the altcoin was trading at $1,886 after witnessing a 1.5% surge in the last 24 hours. Additionally, ETH had witnessed a massive growth of 6.16% in the last seven days as per data from CoinMarketCap.
