CryptoQuant: Not all whales are bullish yet
Even though Bitcoin has entered the early BULL stage, the amount of Bitcoin entering exchanges has been quite stable. In addition, Bitcoin whales, or huge holders with more than 1,000 Bitcoin, have not yet transferred a significant quantity of their currency to exchanges. There was an increase in the number of coins that were between 12 and 18 months old that entered exchanges, which may be seen as a reflection of the spending patterns of long-term holders (3,390 BTC on January 18, when BTC crossed $21,000). Once the price of bitcoin reached $20,000, a significant rise in the amount of bitcoin flowing into exchanges was noted (5,592 BTC on January 19). This was witnessed in the case of miners.

CryptoQuant on ETH
According to CryptoQuant analysis, staking is gaining traction on Ethereum as the amount of activity on the ETH network grows. The total quantity of ETH that has been staked has hit a new all-time high of 15.9 million, which accounts for more than 13% of the entire supply of ETH. The record quantity of Ether that has been staked is the direct outcome of a rise in the total amount of Ether that has been deposited and staked. During this period, there has been a rise in the amount of activity on the network due to the growing number of active addresses and transactions.
