Considering this dump, the possibility of a continued sell-off seemed high. However, it did not affect sentiment around Ethereum, as evident from the rise in its weighted sentiment. In fact, Ethereum’s popularity rose as its social volume went up.
Selling pressure on Ethereum is high
Glassnode Alert’s tweet revealed that Ethereum’s exchange outflow recently reached a 1-month low. The metric clearly revealed that investors were not buying the token. This was further proven by CryptoQuant’s data, which pointed out that ETH’s exchange reserve was increasing, meaning that it was under selling pressure. Its net deposits on exchanges were also high compared to the last seven days, suggesting that investors were selling their holdings.
As per Santiment’s chart, Ethereum’s MVRV Ratio and velocity both plummeted last week, which were bearish signals. However, the supply held by top addresses registered a slight uptick in the same period.
