Why it matters: Cryptocurrency whales that own millions of dollars in Ethereum tend to move markets single-handedly.

It takes about $15 to $30 million of sell pressure to move the price of Ethereum down 2% on any given exchange.
According to Glassnode, there are 64,846 Ethereum wallets with over $100,000 in ETH.
