1/3rd Of The Total Ethereum [ETH] Is Owned By Just 376 Individuals – Analysis Report.

In line with a recent analysis report published by ‘Chainalysis’, around 1/3rd of the world’s total Ethereum [ETH] is owned by just about 376 individuals.

However, despite controlling a major portion of Ethereum’ circulating supply, the study found these “whales” are liable for just 7% of all the transaction activity.

Chainalysis revealed that whereas these people don’t essentially have a meaningful impact on ETH’s worth, they do contribute to promote volatility when major sell-offs are made.

These figures might be seen as an improvement compared with 2016, once whales owned about 47% of ETH’s circulating supply.

As per the team’s report, around 60% of whales hold their assets and don’t often trade with exchanges.

Recent analysis of activity from 2016 to 2019 additionally disclosed that Ethereum price worth tend to follow movements in Bitcoin [BTC].

Explaining further, Researchers added:

“On an avg., about 1% hike within Bitcoin [BTC] prices yesterday proportionally lead to a 1.1% increase in the prices of Ethereum Today. “

Overall, the ‘blockchain‘ analytics company believes that issues regarding this impact of whales on market prices might have been exaggerated, but added:

“We can’t rule out the chance that whales can impact price changes in a single days based on outlier events.”

Just last month, the firm’s research ‘disclosed‘ that a min. of around 90% of cryptocurrency crimes investigated by law enforcement involve Bitcoin [BTC].

Chainalysis additionally recently ‘expanded‘ its real-time transaction monitoring tools to cover 10 crypto-currencies in response to demand from law enforcement agencies.
