Whales Capitalize On Ethereum’s Dip Below $3000 Amidst Market Uncertainty

The current landscape of the crypto market reveals an interesting divergence from traditional markets and commodities, with the 30-day correlation of Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH) hovering close to 0.

This suggests that the crypto market is charting its own course, independent of broader financial trends.

Amidst this scenario, Ethereum, the second-largest cryptocurrency by market cap, finds itself trading below the crucial $3000 mark. However, rather than signaling a downturn, this presents an opportunity for whales to accumulate more tokens.

According to data from Lookonchain, a whale holding a long position in Ethereum recently withdrew a significant amount of ETH from Binance.

This withdrawal amounted to 6,030 ETH, equivalent to $18.09 million, further indicating the whale’s confidence in the asset despite its current price level.

Whale Accumulates Bitcoin And Ethereum Since May 2

In fact, this particular whale has been actively accumulating Ethereum from Binance since May 2, amassing a total of 10,758 ETH, valued at $32.14 million, amidst the ongoing decline in Ethereum’s price.

Interestingly, the whale’s strategy involves converting ETH to staked ETH (stETH) and depositing it into the Aave protocol. Subsequently, they leverage this position by borrowing $28.5 million worth of stablecoins from Aave to purchase more ETH.

This accumulation pattern reflects the whale’s belief in Ethereum’s long-term potential, even amidst short-term market uncertainty. By capitalizing on the dip below $3000, the whale is positioning themselves for potential gains as Ethereum’s price dynamics evolve.

Overall, the actions of whales like this one underscore the resilience of Ethereum and its attractiveness as an investment option, despite temporary market fluctuations.
