The number of ethers held on exchanges has also reached a new low for 2020 at 15.8 million.
In addition, the number of addresses with at least 0.1, 10 or 100 ethers also reached new highs. This development indicates that there is an increased demand from both speculators and potential ETH stakeers.

According to the Ethereum developer Afri Schoedon, the deposit contract was released on November 4th at 4 p.m. (CET).

The deposit contract is the point at which there is no going back for ETH 2.0. We have to do this now. After two and a half years of development, I’m incredibly curious to see where we stand and what is still to come.

The Ethereum 2.0 Deposit Contract is live. The long-awaited update makes the hearts of the Ethereum community beat faster. At the same time, the network breaks several records and the ETH course takes off.
