The Ethereum supply shock has been growing as exchange reserves continue to decrease and value staked in ETH 2.0 contract rises.
Ethereum Supply Shock: Exchange Reserves Go On Decreasing While ETH 2.0 Staking Contract Grows In Value
Como lo señaló una publicación de CryptoQuant, ETH exchange reserves have been decreasing while the coins locked in the staking contract have been rising.
The “all exchanges reserve” is an Ethereum indicator that highlights the total number of coins stored in wallets of all exchanges.
When the value of this metric goes up, it means there is an increase in the supply of ETH on exchanges. Such a trend may show that there is a selling pressure in the market as investors are sending these coins to exchanges for withdrawing to fiat or altcoin purchasing.
A decrease, por otra parte, would imply the supply of ETH is going down as investors take their crypto off exchanges for hodling or selling through OTC deals. This behavior may show that buyers feel bullish on the coin’s future.

Como muestra el gráfico anterior, the Ethereum exchange reserves have been steadily heading downwards since quite some time now.
This is despite ETH’s recent sharp increase in price. It seems investors are willing to hold on as they believe the price will appreciate even further.

This is creating a supply shock in the market. An increase in demand from big whales like institutional and retail investors now can blow the price up.
De hecho, on-chain data suggests institutional investors have already started getting involved in the crypto as 400k ETH exited the crypto exchange Coinbase a few days back.
Por cierto, the chart from before also includes the value currently staked in ETH 2.0. As this contract is seeing a steady increase in the number of coins being locked, it looks likely that some of the supply going off exchanges is going into this contract. This further backs the idea that investors are in Ethereum for the long term.
En el momento de escribir, Ethereum’s price floats around $3.8k, arriba 5% in the last seven days. Durante el mes pasado, la cripto ha ganado 9% en valor.
The below chart shows the trend in the value of the coin over the last five days.
