It is worth to mention that the origin of the 92,000 ETH sent to Kraken is this whale address https://etherscan.io/address/a7e4fecddc20d83f36971b67e13f1abc98dfcfa6 which received most of its balance from Vitalik Buterins address https://etherscan.io/address/0xab5801a7d398351b8be11c439e05c5b3259aec9bwhich which makes us speculate that the 92k ETH belongs to Vitalik or to an Ethereum developer.
Meanwhile, ETH price is 37% down compared to November these large movements of ETH toward exchanges suggest that further dumping in price is coming. However, some Ethereum believers think that these funds are being moved to those leveraged exchanges to go long in Ethereum.
Some are concerned that Ethereum 2.0 will be a disaster and maybe those transfers are from Ethreum insiders are preparing to dump their ETH before the price tanks.
There is saying that “The captain goes down with the ship” but in crypto, thinks work the opposite way. In crypto, the captain is the first to leaves the ship when it is tanking, dumping their coins to the retail users that blindly believe in them.
