At the moment, virtually all digital currencies in the market are experiencing price appreciation, and crypto whales are not relenting from their usual activity of leveraging the market situation for their personal gains.
Obviously, the transfer of crypto-asset from an unknown wallet to exchanges implies sell-off for profits. Recall that the ETH is experiencing parabolic price appreciation, and it keeps consolidating on a daily basis.
At press time, Ethereum (ETH) trades above $220. No sign of price retracement yet, which could have resulted in the calculated efforts of crypto whales to take their profits before the next price pullback.

The Situation of Ethereum (ETH) in the Market
At the moment, there is no big impact noticed on the price of Ethereum (ETH) in the market. The digital currency is leveraging the favorable market situation, led by Bitcoin (BTC), the largest cryptocurrency by market capitalization.
Actually, a huge transfer from an unknown wallet to crypto exchange is not expected to be favorable to the digital token involved, but the market is generally firing on all cylinders, so such lapses could easily go unnoticed.
However, crypto whales remain significant in controlling the trend of prices in the market. At the time of filing this report, ETH is trading at $220.85, with a 7.86% uptrend in the last 24 hours.
