The amount of Ethereum (ETH) that is sold via ICOs has reached high rates, with over 100,000 ETH coins being sold in the last month alone.
Large ETH sales and movements detected
Ethereum (ETH) has seen a lot of action recently, with more than $40 million in ETH being liquidated in a period of a single month. This translates to almost 100,000 tokens, which are all sold through ICOs alone.
That is not exactly an isolated event either, and the firm called Santiment, that has been tracking various ICOs and collecting data has posted interesting results.
According to the data, a single project by the name of Atonomi managed to sell over 12,000 ETH coins by itself. An even more exciting thing is the fact that 9,000 of those coins were sold on a single day, July 26 of this year. This is the biggest ETH sale in the last 30 days.
The second biggest one came from AppCoins, which managed to sell 8,400 within 24 hours, which happened only a week ago, on August 9. In the same time, Openledger managed to sell around 5,400 ETH.
Next, we have Etheroll, which has been selling Ethereum coins throughout the year. However, it would seem that they moved around 5,400 coins around August 2nd, which is actually the highest amount that this project has handled at once since February.
Last year, the firm called Status managed to set a record when it comes to ETH sales. They managed to sell over 30,000 ETH coins between August and October of last year.
While they sold only half of that this year (16,000 ETH), it is still a big deal, especially since 4,800 ETH coins were sold in the last 30 days alone. The list of projects that have had a significant impact on ETH movement goes on and on, and the result is that over 100,000 ETH has been sold or moved in the last 30 days.
ICOs are even cashing out
Of course, it should be remembered that this data doesn’t necessarily show the sales of ETH, but the amounts that are moved for whatever reason as well. So far, for example, Etheroll itself confirmed that they did not sell 5,400, but have instead migrated the coins to a new smart contract.

The biggest assumption here has been that moving ETH coins is the same as spending them. And, while this stands true in most cases, it doesn’t always have to be, as we can see in Etheroll’s example. Still, the sole fact that the coins are being moved at all is a pretty big hint that somehow something is about to happen to them.
Additionally, ever since ETH’s price started to go down, many ICOs decided to cut their losses and simply cash out. An unnamed ICO was recently reported to have raised around $30 million through a pretty decent roadmap. However, they did so when Ethereum’s price was sky-high. After it dropped, the ICO panicked and went for cash, which landed them only $4 million.
“ETHRekt” the term given to ICOs wiped out by the drop off ETH.

While the data is not detailed enough to point out the exact project that did this, there is enough evidence to prove that a lot of ICOs have done the same.

XNO Token of Xeno NFT Hub listed on Bithumb Korea Exchange
Hong Kong, Hong Kong, 25th January, 2021, // ChainWire //
Xeno Holdings Limited (xno.live ), a blockchain solutions company based in Hong Kong, has announced the listing of its ecosystem utility token XNO on the ‘Bithumb Korea’ cryptocurrency exchange on January 21st 2021.
Xeno NFT Hub (market.xno.live ), developed by Xeno Holdings, enables easy minting of digital items into NFTs while also providing a marketplace where anyone can securely trade NFTs.
The Xeno NFT Hub project team includes former members of the technology project Yosemite X based in San Francisco and professionals such as Gabby Dizon who is a games industry expert and NFT space influencer based in Southeast Asia.
NFT(Non-Fungible Token) technology has recently gained huge focus in the blockchain arena and beyond, making waves in the online gaming sector, the art world, and the digital copyrights industry in recent years. The strongest feature of NFTs is that “NFTs are unique digital assets that cannot be replaced or forged”. Unlike fungible tokens such as Bitcoin or Ether, NFTs are not interchangeable for other tokens of the same type but instead each NFT has a unique value and specific information that cannot be replaced. This fact makes NFTs the perfect solution to record and prove ownership of digital and real-world items like works of art, game items, limited-edition collectibles, and more.
NFTs are already being actively traded in markets globally. For…
Should Crypto Projects Devote Resources to Community Growth and Marketing?
2020 has been an incredible year for crypto as investors have generated windfall profits and crypto projects have seen their businesses gain the spotlight they’ve been looking for. While Bitcoin has received most of the attention after major institutional investors announced they were accumulating the increasingly scarce asset, many altcoins have also seen their fair share of glory. When looking at all the big winners of the past year, the first project that probably comes to mind is Chainlink, having appreciated by more than 550% YTD and now valued at over $4.5 billion. But, the actual biggest winner of the year is HEX with a YTD return of over 5,000%.
I mention both of the above projects as they have each taken slightly different paths to achieve greatness. Chainlink has devoted resources toward building a fundamentally sound business with many strategic partnerships while HEX has spent vast sums of money on marketing and promotion. Both approaches are valid, but one thing is certain, it is absolutely imperative for crypto projects to let the crypto community know what makes them special. Of course, one of the reasons that makes crypto so valuable is the powerful blockchain technology that most projects are utilizing.
Cryptocurrency vs. Blockchain Technology
It’s important to make a distinction between blockchain technology and cryptocurrency. Although they are often used interchangeably, they are different. Blockchain technology and crypto were both created after the 2008 financial crisis, but cryptocurrency…

He also added “This does not mean we will prohibit other types of NFTs from our ecosystem However, it simply means that XENO’s efforts as a company will be targeted into these verticals initially as a cohesive business approach.”
Development and Procurement Lead, Gabby Dizon explained, “Despite our initial focus, we found ourselves with a unique opportunity to host some of the works of Mr. Hiro Yamagata. We are collaborating with Japanese artist Hiro Yamagata to enshrine some of his artwork into NFTs.”
