Is this the end of Ethereum as we know it?

By Crypto4you23 | Cryptoanswers22 | 10 May 2023


The amount of Ethereum (ETH) deposited in centralized exchanges has dropped to the lowest level in the last six months, raising concerns about the future of the cryptocurrency.

On Monday (8), on-chain analytics provider Nansen reported that the ETH held in exchanges had hit a new six-month low. Only 26.5 million tokens, worth around $49 billion, are residing in CEXs.

This marks a significant decline of about 10% since the beginning of the year, and there has been a massive exodus after the FTX collapse at the end of 2022.

The situation has alarmed investors, who fear that a further decline in ETH holdings could lead to a liquidity crisis and a possible crash of the Ethereum network.

According to Nansen's report, Coinbase (NASDAQ:COIN) has the largest share of Ethereum among CEXs, with 31% or 7.91 million ETH.

The second largest is Binance, with 19% or 4.78 million ETH, while Bitfinex holds 8.3% of the ETH balance in exchanges.

This drop in ETH deposits may indicate that investors are losing confidence in the cryptocurrency and are looking for alternative investment opportunities. It also suggests that more investors are opting for decentralized exchanges, where they can retain control of their assets.

The trend could have far-reaching implications for the entire cryptocurrency market, and experts warn that investors should proceed with caution.
