Despite the new regulations of Ethereum introduced with the London hard fork, miners are still producing and setting aside a good amount of revenue since mining. In the panorama ETHIndeed, the balance held by miners had been declining since 2016, the main result of a series of poor market conditions and of those miners who sold their shares to finance their mining activities. With prices getting lower, the total dollar value of miners' holdings in ETH has therefore fallen almost steadily.
However, the number rose in 2021. After rally started in 2020, Ethereum price he gradually recovered. And, by extension, the dollar value of ETH shares has started to rise. The current metrics therefore show how the value of ETH held by miners has reached a maximum in five years: the last time that miners have held such a value in ETH was in 2016.
