ETH bag-holders have a reason to smile
Despite the coin’s sideways movements, transactions involving ETH have mostly returned profits, data from Santiment revealed. A look at the ratio of daily on-chain transaction volume in profit to loss confirmed this.
This metric shows the ratio between transaction volume in profit and transaction volume in loss. When it returns a positive value, profit-taking transactions exceed loss-taking ones. Conversely, when the metric is negative, it suggests that losses overwhelm profits during a specified time frame.
On a 30-day moving average, ETH’s ratio of daily on-chain transaction volume in profit to loss has remained positive. At press time, this stood at 1.2, meaning ETH profit-taking transactions happened almost twice as fast as loss-taking transactions.

Likewise, ETH’s Market Value to Realized Value ratio (MVRV) remains above the zero line. This metric track whether an asset is overvalued or undervalued. It shows the ratio between the current price and the average price of every coin/token acquired.
The more the ratio increases, the more people will be willing to sell as the potential profits increase. At 22% on a 30-day moving average, more traders might be willing to let go of their ETH holdings to book gains.
As profitable transactions count rally, ETH has seen a significant uptick in network activity, data from Santiment revealed. According to the data provider, “Ethereum’s market price has gained +4.9% against Bitcoin over the past month, and rebounding network growth has had a lot to do with this.”
