Amid the current market volatility, the Ethereum (ETH) price is showing strength and holding steady around $3070 levels. There’s a massive whale activity currently happening around Ethereum, with Tron founder Justin Sun trying to absorb all the selling pressure before the upcoming approval of spot Ethereum ETF, scheduled within the next two weeks.

Justin Buys Ethereum in Huge Quantity

As per on-chain data provider Spot on Chain, Tron founder Justin Sun spent a total of $5 million USDT in order to acquire 1,614 ETH at a price of $3,097 per token.

Sun has been on an Ethereum accumulation spree since the beginning of the year. Spot on Chain reports that since February 8, Justin Sun has reportedly accumulated a total of 362,751 ETH across three different wallets, for an estimated total investment of $1.1 billion, and an average price of $3,047 per ETH.

Along with these purchases, Spot on Chain also noted that Sun recently deposited 45 million USDT to Binance, suggesting the possibility of future Ethereum acquisitions.

Interestingly, the ETH whale accumulation has been happening just ahead of the spot Ether ETF approval, likely to happen before the end of July.

Ethereum Whale Activity Jumps

While Justin Sun has been picking up Ethereum from the exchanges, there have also been huge ETH deposits taking place recently. In the last 24 hours, the Golem Project was one of the major depositors of ETH to crypto exchange Binance. However, on-chain data shows that they have reportedly stopped selling ETH, while simultaneously staking a total of 40,000 ETH.

Moreover, Elwood Technologies has also deposited 26,811 ETH worth over $84 million to crypto exchange Binance in the last three days. However, some of the Elwood-related addresses also withdrew 24,463 ETH from Binance during the same time.

As of now, the ETH price is holding firmly above $3,000 despite this massive whale activity. Technical indicators suggest that the Ethereum bottom could already be in.
