Recent on-chain activity for Ethereum indicates that the altcoin may experience additional gains.

The emergence of new wallets on a chain indicates the cryptocurrency’s importance to market players and suggests that demand is probably increasing. According to Santiment data, Ethereum’s price has increased in comparison to Bitcoin, rising by around 18.00% during the previous week.
