Ethereum: USD/ETH (ETH=) Co-Founder Reportedly Sells 90k ETH To U.S. Cryptocurrency Exchange

Ethereum (ETH) co-founder and core developer, Jeffrey Wilcke, has reportedly sent 92,000 ETH ($11.5 million) to U.S. cryptocurrency exchange Kraken on Dec. 25.

The proof is in the blockchain

In addition to Wilcke’s tweet, sources show that an ETH address registering the name of Jeff Wilcke moved 90,000 ETH to Kraken in full.

In January 2016, an account funded by the Ethereum Foundation dev wallet moved 408,000 ETH to an ox600 address. Between January 2016 and the end of this year, the address shows continual selling and movement of funds, yet this decreases sharply on Dec. 25.

While the address still has 218,000 ETH ($27 million), 90,000 of this was moved to an intermediary address and then sent in full to Kraken.

Monitoring resource etherscan shows the interaction was performed by the ox600 address.

Prior to Wilcke sending 90,000 ETH to Kraken, Vitalik Buterin revealed on a podcast that aired Dec. 11 that the Ethereum Foundation netted around $100 million by selling ETH at its last all-time high, when it was trading close to $1,400 in January 2018.

Momentum Indicators

Momentum is a general term used to describe the speed at which prices move over a given time period. Generally, changes in momentum tend to lead to changes in prices. This expert shows the current values of four popular momentum indicators.

Stochastic Oscillator

One method of interpreting the Stochastic Oscillator is looking for overbought areas (above 80) and oversold areas (below 20). The Stochastic Oscillator is 74.0005. This is not an overbought or oversold reading. The last signal was a buy 25 period(s) ago.

Relative Strength Index (RSI)

The RSI shows overbought (above 70) and oversold (below 30) areas. The current value of the RSI is 48.51. This is not a topping or bottoming area. A buy or sell signal is generated when the RSI moves out of an overbought/oversold area. The last signal was a buy 12 period(s) ago.

Commodity Channel Index (CCI)

The CCI shows overbought (above 100) and oversold (below -100) areas. The current value of the CCI is 211.This is an overbought reading. However, a signal isn’t generated until the indicator crosses below 100. The last signal was a buy 9 period(s) ago.


The Moving Average Convergence/Divergence indicator (MACD) gives signals when it crosses its 9 period signal line. The last signal was a buy 6 period(s) ago.
