ETH Struggles Below $2000 As Ethereum Whales Battle Among Others

On Tuesday, June 22, the world's second-largest cryptocurrency registered a 10% price drop, reaching close to $1700 and falling below key support levels.

According to on-chain data, ETH whale wallets holding anywhere between 10,000 and 100,000 have tracked the ETH price over the past three months to last month's clearing. Fun fact: ETH held in 10K – 100K wallets tends to follow price over the past three years. But last month the price underperformed. — Lex Moskovski (@mskvsk) June 20, 2021 Ethereum analysts bullish on ETH chart patterns Although Ethereum has been trading sideways for a while, some chart indicators show that Ethereum has a strong support formation.
