Ethereum [ETH] has been trading steadily at $3,500 for the past few weeks. But ETH's price on the charts dropped dramatically during a recent dip, which fueled a shift in opinion.

Increasing outflows

Notwithstanding this correction, exchanges have seen large withdrawals since March totaling almost 1,000,000 ETH, or $3.41 billion. This pattern continues in spite of macroeconomic headwinds and concerns over the SEC possibly rejecting a spot ETH ETF.

 These outflows show that people are using the Ethereum network for legitimate purposes, like making transaction payments, staking, and restaking. This indicates that they are not just trading speculatively but are also comfortable keeping ETH in the face of adverse market conditions. However, spot Ethereum liquidity is still very valuable.

Dealers bleed

ETH was down 2.68% in value over the previous day as of the time of publication, trading at $3,254.80. Many traders also liquidated their holdings as a result of the quick drop in the price of ETH. Coinglass's data shows that during this time, investments valued at $57.22 million were liquidated. Fourteen million dollars or so were liquidated from the long bets.

Additionally, within the past few days, ETH's trading velocity decreased. That meant there was a significant drop in the rate at which ETH was exchanged. Further evidence that new addresses have been losing interest in ETH comes from the fact that the network expansion of ETH has also significantly slowed.

Long-term owners demonstrate their faith

The price correction caused a large decline in ETH's MVRV ratio. This suggested that, as of the time of writing, the majority of ETH holdings were not lucrative. This might be seen favorably since the majority of these investors do not need to sell their holdings, and the price of ETH may continue to rise from here. Furthermore, within the past several weeks, ETH's Long/Short discrepancy has also increased.

The number of long-term holdings exceeds that of short-term investors when the long/short discrepancy rises. These long-term investors have lower selling rates and are less prone to behave rashly in response to market changes.
