Ethereum (ETH) has been on a negative trajectory ever since the second-largest cryptocurrency dropped from the recent all-time high (ATH) of $4,350. ETH was trading at $2,661, according to CoinMarketCap.
Nevertheless, Santiment has acknowledged that Ethereum is gaining momentum as address activity in this network is growing again. The on-chain metrics provider explained:
“Ethereum’s address activity is growing again, & the amount of active deposits that were prevalent during the major panic selloff last week has died down. The crowd sentiment is bearish, which is a good sign for the bulls.”
The Ethereum network is also being boosted because the number of addresses holding more than 0.01 ETH reached a record-high of 15,741,620.
Ethereum options spiked in May
According to crypto data provider Documenting Ethereum:
“Monthly Trade Volume of Bitcoin & Ethereum options. Ethereum volume spiking in May.”
On the other hand, the mean fee paid on the ETH network hit a 4-month low of $6.73.
Ethereum has been grappling with the challenge of high gas fees, which at one time became unbearable for those general traders.
The launching of ETH 2.0 in December 2020 is expected to tackle this problem, given that it will transit the present proof-of-work (POW) consensus mechanism to a proof-of-stake (POS) platform. Furthermore, scalability and efficiency are to be boosted.
Meanwhile, the world’s first Ether Exchange Traded Fund (ETF) by Purpose Investments surpassed 50,000 ETH on May 29.
The Ether ETF is a type of security that tracks the overall price of ETH. It enables investors to trade and purchase shares of it on traditional exchanges or circumventing crypto trading platforms.
Therefore, it was expected to offer investors a simple, affordable, and efficient way to attain direct exposure to ETH with the convenience of eligibility in any investment account.
Bitcoin: Here’s the ‘ticking time bomb’ traders should be aware of
Despite Bitcoin oscillating around the $40,000-mark over the last 48 hours, the outflow of BTC from exchanges continued its downward trend. Over the week, exchange balances have continued to decline to hit a new multi-year low of 13.0% of circulating supply. This pushes exchange balances to levels last seen in February 2018.
While the aforementioned outflow trend has continued to surprise, it has also been interesting to see how Bitcoin outflows played out differently for different exchanges and what affected this behavioral difference.
This article will delve into how differing sentiments and external and geographical factors played out during outflows from some of the top exchanges.
More and more outflows
According to a recent Glassnode report, there appears to be more demand for coins accumulated from exchange balances. In fact, the previous week saw a deeply negative (outflows) exchange net-flow reading, with BTC outflows happening at a rate of – 92k BTC/month.
Notably, both exchange balance and exchange net-flow balance highlighted that the market has clearly shifted its paradigm after March 2020. From a regime of net exchange inflow dominance to outflow dominance.
Comparative performance of exchanges
While outflows have been constant across the market, external factors have influenced how exchanges across the spectrum behaved. A characteristic behavior was noted in two cohorts of exchanges –
The first cohort of exchanges included Bittrex, Bitfinex, Kraken, Gemini, and Binance. On the contrary, the second included Bitstamp, OKEx, Huobi, and Coinbase.
The first cohort of exchanges demonstrated characteristic inflows and balance growth for most of 2020 and 2021, reflecting a rising dominance in coin holdings.
Binance and Gemini were the primary recipients of this cohort. Post the May sell-offs, balances across this exchange group plateaued and saw modest coin outflows.
On the other hand, the second cohort of exchange saw constant outflows since March 2020. In fact, this has actually accelerated in recent weeks.
Further, the net balance across exchanges has continued to decline as the inflows observed in May were absorbed by the market and moved to investor wallets.
Exchange balance serves as an important metric to gauge traders’ sentiments for the underlying asset. In the case of Coinbase, it’s a hint at its traders’ intention to hold BTC instead of selling it.
Notably, the amount of Bitcoin held in Coinbase Pro’s vaults dropped by 28,843.87 BTC over the last month.
On the other hand, modest outflows from Binance were indicative of the skepticism holders have for BTC’s price. Also, since Binance caters to a more global audience, it can play a part in this trend. The rising Bitcoin balances on Binance were suggestive of its users thinking about selling BTC, the opposite of the trend seen on Coinbase.
In hindsight, it can be noted that on Binance, the Bitcoin balance spiked from 199,700 BTC on 20 April to 347,590 BTC on 26 June – More than 1.5x. During that time, Bitcoin’s price dropped from over $65k to below $30k.
Thus, if the price doesn’t recover soon and outflows don’t dominate on Binance again, the rise in balances could prove to be a ticking time bomb.

MiamiCoin earns 2,000 USD every 10 minutes for the city
In February, Miami mayor Francis Suarez made first advancements to transform the city into a cryptocurrency hub. His plans were further cemented when the municipal cryptocurrency MiamiCoin launched last month with 30% of all mined coins going directly to the city.
In a recent interview with Fox Business, Suarez confirmed that the city receives roughly 2,000 USD every 10 minutes though MiamiCoin. Annualized, this transfers to a revenue of over 100 million USD, although Suarez has been more careful, estimating a yearly revenue of 60 million USD. The money is earmarked for specific projects, such as funding for underprivileged communities, crypto education, and climate change mitigation.
Crypto could revolutionize government funding, says Francis Suarez
In his interview, Suarez stated that MiamiCoin could theoretically abolish Miami’s already low tax burden altogether:
It’s interesting because it’s not an involuntary tax and it’s not philanthropy. It’s something that is completely different and could revolutionize the way governments are funded in the future.
It is still a long way to go for that though. In 2015, the City of Miami recorded a total tax revenue of roughly 240 million USD. Yet, the move towards municipal coins is a very natural development.
Using cryptographic tokens as a funding vehicle for developing DeFi platforms and other decentralized applications is a tested method and has specially made great advancements over the last year. It should be only a matter of time until this method will be tried on a municipal, or even nationwide scale.
