Going by on-chain analytic data from SpotOnChain, an inactive ETH whale has finished selling its ETH stash: 7,240 ETH, having a total value of $21.4 million, to Kraken crypto exchange. Depositing to crypto exchanges signals an intent to sell, while withdrawals signal buying.

The ETH shift follows a period of unknown direction on the market, with cryptos experiencing a fall in price. Ethereum was not exempted from such selling activity on the market, losing the value of 11.77% weekly.

Spotonchain said the Whale had held these tokens for a year and a half, possibly at the start of 2023, when the crypto market started recovering the selling period of 2022 and the price of ETH increased.

Going by the present reality of the ETH price, the whale now stands to make a likely gain of $12.83 million, or a 149% increase, which suggests the whale might have been strategic in its move by avoiding losing its stash on the market.

If the price continues its present move higher, ETH may meet sellers at $3,373. If Ethereum’s price crashes from this main price zone, the likelihood of selling below $2,850 is higher.

The next price support zone on the downside for ETH is $2,200. To confirm that the range-bound action is still in place, bulls might need to push the ETH price over the $3,373 price area.
