Whale Withdraws 16,449 ETH Ahead of Ethereum ETF Approval

Ethereum (ETH) price saw a major recovery towards the $3,100 level as it nears the much-anticipated approval of the spot Ethereum ETF. Additionally, Ethereum whales appear to be providing further support for the ETH price to continue its advance.

Ethereum Whale Raises $50 Million Worth of ETH

According to on-chain data provider Spot On Chain, an Ethereum whale recently withdrew a whopping 16,449 ETH worth $50.3 million from crypto exchange Binance, while the ETH price surged above $3,000.

The data provider notes that this is the first significant accumulation from a new whale address. The whale also moved all of the withdrawn ETH to a new wallet and stayed there. The timing of this large-scale pullback coincides with expectations that the ETH ETF will likely launch next week, indicating a potentially bullish outlook for Ethereum.

Will Ethereum ETF Be a Major Catalyst for ETH?

Bitwise Chief Compliance Officer Katherine Dowling has confirmed that approval for the spot Ethereum ETF in the US is indeed imminent. With all issuers having submitted their S-1 amendments, analysts are expecting approval to come by July 18 next week.

Last week, inflows into Ethereum investment products surged to $10.2 million as institutional players accumulated ETH ahead of ETF approval. Some market commentators predict that these products will attract inflows as traders and investors reposition themselves ahead of final approval. A similar trend was observed after the SEC approved the 19b-4 filings of Ethereum ETFs, with ETH prices rising by 22% and strong institutional inflows fueling bullish momentum.
