IntoTheBlock noted that Ether’s price rallied by 60% over the past month after $1 billion was pulled from the centralized trading platforms in April. The situation changed since April but last month’s London upgrade introduced a burn mechanism into the ETH fee market which only increased the deflationary pressure on the ETH supply dynamics. At the time of writing, 309,505 ether that was worth $1.1 billion were burned in the past 42 days since Ethereum’s Improvement Proposal 1559 went live. Ether was removed from the supply at a rate of 5.05 ETH each minute or $26 million since the upgrade. The booming NFT marketplace OpenSea is the leading decentralized application for Ethereum by burn rate and represents more than 14% of the ETH that was removed from the supply followed by Uniswap with 5.5% and Ether with 4.9%.
Bitcoin also saw some steady outflows from centralized trading venues since peaking at 17% of the supply in May and according to the on-chain analytics firm Glassndoe, the centralized exchanges BTC rivers dropped to their lowest since February 2018.
