Ethereum price prediction for June 1 as whales move $118 million ETH

Ethereum price prediction for June 1 as whales move $118 million ETH

Ethereum (ETH) is looking to reclaim the $4,000 mark after receiving a major boost from the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).

Excitingly, Ethereum investors are anticipating a potential surge in the cryptocurrency’s value following the U.S. regulator’s approval of a series of first-spot ETH exchange-traded funds (ETFs). 

Notably, there is a buzz of speculation about the possibility of Ethereum mirroring the price movement of Bitcoin (BTC), which experienced a significant rally after the approval of a similar product. 

Amid the rollout of the ETFs, Ethereum is witnessing significant whale activity. According to data shared by Whale Alert, three major transfers were observed from unknown wallets to the crypto exchange OKEx on May 25. 

The transactions involved 9,019 ETH (approximately $33,776,166), 22,429 ETH (valued at around $83,993,750), and 26,925 ETH (worth about $100,832,790), all moving to the exchange.

These transfers, totaling 58,373 ETH and equating to $118,602,706, have led to speculation regarding the impact on the valuation of the second-ranked cryptocurrency by market cap.

Overall, significant movement of such large sums into exchanges could suggest an anticipation of heightened trading activity. Historically, large transfers to exchanges have sometimes preceded major price actions, either due to impending sell-offs or strategic positioning for significant market events.

To gather insights into how Ethereum is likely to trade in the coming days, Finbold turned to CoinCodex, leveraging its AI-powered machine-learning algorithms. According to CoinCodex’s projections, Ethereum is expected to trade at $3,813 on June 1, representing an increase of almost 2% from the current price.

Notably, the price projection could set the stage for Ethereum to target new highs following the ETF approval. 

For instance, crypto analyst RLinda suggested in a TradingView post on May 24 that the approval could act as a bullish catalyst. According to RLinda, if Ethereum consolidates above $3,827 and surpasses $4,095, it will likely target a new record high.

However, RLinda also cautioned that history might repeat itself, similar to the pattern observed with Bitcoin after the approval of BTC ETFs. Market makers could create a trap by causing a quick drop in price before an upward movement.

Meanwhile, the ETF approval acting as a catalyst for attracting institutional investors should encourage ETH bulls to work harder to sustain the price above $3,500.
