Like the addresses reported in Lookonchain’s post, the activity of dormant addresses is not rare; networks frequently observe a surge in the activity of specific addresses that have not been active in years. Such awakenings, sadly, do not favor assets going in a downward trend.

Investors don’t need selling contributions from whales right now, given the market’s heavy selling pressure. The price of the second-largest cryptocurrency on the market, Ethereum, has recently demonstrated that bulls cannot keep up with the current market conditions as it has fallen below the $1,200 price level.

Ethereum made yet another effort at a breakthrough on December 13 and failed, losing more than 11% of its value in the previous three days. The market realized that the FED’s actions are not assisting risky assets like Ethereum, Bitcoin, or cryptocurrencies in general.

After the initial warning, the addresses made no transfers involving the whales. On-chain analytics have not discovered any links between such addresses and any illegal platforms or on-chain organizations that took part in criminal behavior.
