Whales moved nearly $1 billion in Ethereum (ETH) across 15 separate transactions during Tuesday and Wednesday, according to the crypto tracker Whale Alert.
After pumping to more than $3,320 in price at various points over the weekend, ETH has since tumbled down to a price of $2,988 at time of writing, according to CoinGecko.
The second-biggest crypto asset by market cap is now down 5.6% on the week amid a market-wide pullback that began on Tuesday after nearly three weeks of bullish price action that kicked off at the beginning of August.

The following day, a fourth unknown wallet sent 32,020 ETH, worth more than $97.6 million, to a fifth unknown wallet.
