On-chain data shows around 800k ETH has exited wallets of the crypto exchange Gemini, a sign that could prove to be bullish for Ethereum.
When the value of this metric goes down, it means the number of coins on exchanges are going down. Such a trend, when prolonged, can be a sign of accumulation from investors, and hence can be bullish for the price of the crypto.
On the other hand, an increase in the reserve implies users are depositing their coins right now. Since investors usually transfer to exchanges for selling purposes, this kind of trend can have bearish consequences for ETH.
Now, here is a chart that shows the trend in the Ethereum all exchanges reserve over the last couple of months:
As you can see in the above graph, the Ethereum exchange reserve has observed a crash in the last day as a large number of coins have been withdrawn.
This indicator has shown a huge negative spike recently, a trend which makes sense given the exchange reserve has plunged down.
The quant notes that these withdrawals took place on the crypto exchange Gemini and amounted to around 800k ETH.
Gemini is popularly known to be used by whales. In the past, transfers to and from the exchange have usually had a noticeable impact on the market.
As such, such a large number of coins exiting from the exchange can mean Ethereum’s near term outlook might be bullish.
