Numbers showing growth
Santiment indicated on a chart that the number of Ethereum miners has been steadily growing; this was especially noticeable in the past month.
It was stated that, on March 26, after the concentration of 163,300 ETH in the hands of miners, this amount dropped to 94,200 ETH by June 6.
The analysis provided shows that, at the moment, the balance of the number of Ethereum miners is restored to 112,000.
Recall that the number of active Ethereum addresses previously exceeded the Bitcoin ecosystem. Thus, their number in the network of the second-most capitalized cryptocurrency in the first week of July increased by more than nine percent, reaching 700,000.
This figure was 22 percent lower than the similar April maximum of 900,000.
It is also worth mentioning that Ethereum’s main test networks successfully passed the London update. The London hardfork was activated in the main Ethereum test networks.
Recall that Santiment previously reported that Ethereum whales continue to increase their holdings in the second cryptocurrency’s network. Thus, the top 10 Ethereum addresses in the past two days or so were able to add 41 percent of the circulating number of tokens to their holdings.
