As traders expect a massive surge in Ethereum price, a whale has taken 15,500 Ethereum (ETH) worth $20 million from multiple liquidity pools. The nearly $20 million worth of ETH taken from pools was later transferred to the crypto exchange Binance. Is the whale preparing to dump all Ethereum tokens as ETH price hits $1,350?

After that, the whale transferred 15,500 ETH to crypto exchange Binance. The Etherscan data also confirms a transaction of 15,499.99 ETH to Binance at 07:00 UTC.
Further on-chain analysis revealed that the whale was holding 30,000 ETH in September last year. Now the whale has Ethereum worth just $19.58. For example, the whale sold all its assets during the crypto winter.
In the past 10 days, the whale has transferred over 20,000 ETH to Binance. Crypto Twitter believes that a dump in the Ethereum price is likely to be expected. A lack of whale activity has been noticed despite a slight rally in the crypto market.
ETH Price Drop Coming?
In the past 24 hours, Ethereum price has been under pressure compared to Bitcoin price. While BTC price was up almost 2% on Wednesday, ETH price only jumped 0.5%.
The ETH price is currently trading at USD 1,335. The 24-hour low and high are at $1,324 and $1,342 respectively. In addition, trading volume is down 12% in the last 24 hours, indicating a decline in interest.
Crypto analyst Michael van de Poppe predicts a drop in ETH price below $1.3K in the coming days. Traders await CPI data on Friday as prices move into areas of resistance. However, he believes markets are likely to continue rising for the next 1-3 months.
