“A renewed healthy hash-rate and improving mining metrics suggests that the worst of the miner capitulation saga is behind us. On-chain analysis also confirms that wallets holding 100 to 10,000 ETH, have been accumulating the past two months adding 3,000 new addresses, nearly amounting to 50,000 wallets, the highest level since a year. These strong accumulation trends coupled with promising macroeconomic data concerning a lessening inflation have led to strong rallies in the equities and crypto market alike with the risk-on sentiment reignited,” the CoinDCX research team told Gadgets 360.
