The numbers are alarming for an average trader as it high volume Ether holders currently have 33% of total Ether [ETH] circulating in the market. However, it was observed that large volume ‘hodlers‘ do not move their cryptocurrencies much often. Kim Grauer, a Senior Economist at Chainalysis noted,

“The majority of whales aren’t traders,” she said. “They’re mostly holding.”

At the New York Consensus Week, one of the biggest crypto-conferences, she addressed the more important questions of how these whales affect the prices. The report suggested that whales are practically harmless because they are mostly ‘Hodlers‘ and their sell-off or addition do not affect the demand and supply curve enough to affect the prices. She said in the interview,

“People tend to be a little spooked by these ‘whales’. However, most of the time it is just exchanges moving their coins. Identifying them was difficult.” She added, “But once we’re able to identify the whales. We didn’t actually find any correlation to price. Whale movement impact the intra-day volatility of cryptocurrencies only. “

Further, on the correlation between price movements, she said that they identified that,

“Bitcoin has a causal effect on the Ethereum prices.” The report found, “On average, a 1% increase in Bitcoin prices yesterday leads to a 1.1% increase in Ether prices today. “
