350 million dollars disappeared… in 3 days – A fter the disappearance of bitcoins, is it the turn of ethers? We have written extensively on the huge flow of bitcoins leaving the exchanges, a signal that was believed to be bullish. The same trend seems to be emerging, but this time on Ethereum.
Our opinion on Ethereum (ETH) »
776,772 ethers less in 3 days
This figure is impressive. If we consider a $ 450 ether, then we can estimate that a total of $ 350 million of ether came out of the exchanges in just 3 days .

It is still early days to say whether this trend will last … However, this data could be a contextual element confirming a possible rise in the valuation of ETH in the future, due to an obvious scarcity of supply.

We notice an interesting element. The downtrend of Bitcoin’s balance is consistent with a trend change on the Ether balance , both of which took place in March , in the midst of the Covid-19 crisis.
However, while Bitcoin went downtrend immediately, that of ETH stagnated from April to August. The downtrend hardly seems to start, when the price of ETH has already taken off. This may suggest good prospects for valuation if our hypothesis is confirmed. As we said in the penultimate analysis, there is currently no real technical brake on the valuation of Ethereum up to $ 600-800 .
