The team of on-chain data vendor Santiment has reported that, in the past 15 weeks, Ethereum whales have added a massive amount of ETH to their holdings.
Meanwhile, the Ethereum price has recaptured the $5,500 area on the charts, and anonymous holders have moved almost $1 billion worth of Ether.
Top 10 largest ETH wallet supply soars to 51-month high
Santiment says that, as Ethereum has so far retaken the $3,537 level, the top 10 largest ETH wallets belonging to whales have shown a substantial rise in the amount of Ether they hold.
In the past 15 weeks, the amount of Ethereum stored in these cold wallets has risen to a 51-month peak. These addresses now hold 21.38% of the circulating Ethereum supply.
That is the largest amount of Ether they have been holding since early May 2017.
