Dormant Ethereum Whale Worth 100 ETH Reawakens

A long-time dormant Ethereum whale holding 100 ETH tokens has sprung back into action after being idle for over 8 years. The reawakening joins a series of activations of dormant addresses in recent months.

In a recent development, a genesis Ethereum whale which has been dormant since after the launch of the coin has returned to action according to reports. According to reports from WhaleAlert, a cryptocurrency transaction tracker, the wallet address which has been out of action for 8.5 years contains 100 ETH tokens (worth approximately $265,000 at press time).

Several dormant whales come back to life

Meanwhile, the aforementioned awakening is not a unique event. Several dormant addresses holding substantial amounts of Ethereum tokens have returned to action, moving staggering amounts of ETH to different wallets.

These continuous activities have sparked speculation across the crypto community concerning the potential effect it will have on the price of the coin.

Also, other significant addresses holding 492 ETH (worth $1.3 million), 133 ETH (worth $352,450), and 200 ETH (worth $530,00) have returned during this period.
