Crypto Titan Justin Sun’s $891M Ethereum Holdings Signal Market Resurgence


In the volatile world of cryptocurrency investment, the second largest crypto token by market cap, Ethereum (ETH) could be poised for an epic market resurgence after a series of robust purchases, said to have been made by Justin Sun, the founder of Tron. This continual acquisitive activity is indicative of the considerable optimism expressed by the so-called ‘crypto whales’ regarding Ethereum, despite the token’s price instability.

There has been a recent hive of inquisitiveness concerning a particular wallet believed to belong to Justin Sun. This wallet has reportedly acquired a substantial amount of 127,388 ETH, amounting to approximately $405.19 million. These purchases which began on April 8, have been primarily from Binance and decentralized exchanges (DEXs), with the average purchase price per token being valued at $3,127.

Online analytics platform Lookonchain which first brought attention to this big spender, has further expatiated on the theory, emphasizing previous analyses which pointed towards another wallet in possession of 168,369 ETH, bought at $2,894. This wallet, also allegedly Sun’s, had made its purchase from Binance and a DEX between February 12 and February 24. Lookonchain noted the similarities in “transaction behavior” between these two wallets, thus inferring both could be owned by Sun.

Adding to Sun’s array of Ethereum holdings is likely to pique the curiosity of the crypto community. Should Lookonchain’s speculations be accurate, since February 12, Sun’s aggregate ETH holdings from both wallets could approximate a staggering 295,757 ETH. This translates to roughly $891 million, purchased at an average cost of $3,014 per token.

Sun’s Ethereum accumulation spree signals the positive belief that the crypto titans have in Ethereum, despite the token’s recent uninspiring performance. Bitcoinist recently highlighted another Ethereum whale that, unfazed by losing $4.5 million, took an additional long position on the second-largest crypto token.

Such actions from these cryptocurrency investors reflects a remarkable bullish sentiment. Whales such as the one that borrowed an impressive 17.3 million USDT to up their exposure to Ethereum, or the one that withdrew 7,182 ETH ($23.06 million) from Binance for long term holding, continue to drive hopeful market behavior.

Another unnamed investor, displaying a confident outlook towards Ethereum, withdrew 5,181 ETH ($16.28 million) from Binance and staked it into Bedrock and Pendle, presumably anticipating further upticks in price gains.

This persistent bullish attitude could prove fruitful for Ethereum’s price, considering that these whales wield considerable influence over token prices. In fact, their actions could possibly reignite a spark in Ethereum’s network growth and attract a new wave of users, which lately has been on a slowdown.

Despite the recent slump in Ethereum’s worth, trading at around $3170 and down over 1% in the past 24 hours according to data from CoinMarketCap, the inextricable link between whale activities and token prices is unequivocal and certainly warrants attention. With recent trends leaning favorably towards Ethereum, the crypto world could be on the precipice of a massive resurgence.
