Ethereum Miners Holdings Reach All Time Near High As PoS Approaches.

Ethereum [ETH] miners tend to be hesitant to sell their holdings and anticipate additional price increases. In terms of US dollars, miners’ holdings of Ether have reached fresh highs, showing that they are still unwilling to sell.

The amount of Ether owned by miners is at its highest level since the network’s inception five years ago. According to statistics given by analytics company Santiment, it is at a historic high of $1.85 billion when translated into USD.

The 532,750 ETH is the biggest amount held by miners since July 13, 2016, according to the company. The sum represents around 0.45 percent of Ethereum’s entire circulating supply, which stands at 117.8 million ETH at the moment.

Miners typically sell the asset on a regular basis to cover expenses such as electricity and hardware. Miners’ hesitation to sell might indicate that they are waiting for additional price hikes.

During the miner exodus from China, the Ethereum hash rate, which is generally seen as a sign of network health and security, fell along with Bitcoin’s. In late June, Ethereum’s hash rate dropped to 477 Tera hashes per second (TH/s), but it has since fully recovered and risen to new highs. It has increased by 150 percent since the start of the year.

Despite China-based Ethereum mining pools SparkPool and BeePool halting operations in recent weeks, this is still the case. Surprisingly, the hash rate has remained unchanged since reaching an all-time high of 745 TH/s on Tuesday, according to BitInfoCharts.

Following the London hard fork in early August, Cointelegraph claimed in September that Ether miners had begun stockpiling the cryptocurrency. Miners were anticipating more price rises from possible deflationary qualities following the publication of Ethereum Improvement Proposal 1559, which burns part of the transaction fees, according to research from the Kraken crypto exchange.
