- Ethereum supply on exchanges increased rapidly in the past three days.
- ETH token inflow to exchange platforms climbed 62% last week.
- Ethereum price could face selling pressure from the rising token reserves, pushing ETH lower.
Ethereum supply on exchanges noted a considerable increase between December 21 and Saturday. As ETH reserves in exchange wallets climb, there is more Ether available to sell, typically increasing the selling pressure on the altcoin.
ETH price could suffer a pullback in response to the selling pressure. At the time of writing, ETH price sustains above $2,200 on Binance.
