On-chain analytics platform Santiment is warning investors that Ethereum (ETH) is at risk of falling further based on a key metric.
In a new report from the platform called Based on the 7-day market value to realized value (MVRV) of ETH, the second largest cryptocurrency by market cap is currently in the “danger zone”.
“ETH’s MVRV 7D, which measures short-term profit/loss for holders, shows that ETH has entered a dangerous zone as the indicator hits a three-month high that has short-term holders sold off sharply.”

MVRV is the ratio between the market cap and the actual capitalization of a coin. An increased MVRV value indicates a high paper yield and thus an investor’s ability to liquidate his assets profitably.
On the other hand, a low MVRV indicates a low paper yield and is an indication that an asset is undervalued or in low demand.
According to Santiment, a decline in Ethereum’s price and MVRV could be a good thing for the second-largest cryptocurrency.
“Price and MVRV declines in the coming days should contribute to the price pullback and create a good opportunity for investors.”
Santiment also cautioned that Ethereum’s price action is showing a bearish signal, saying that bulls need to strengthen to avoid a potential sell-off.
“After making a deep low in January 2022, ETH made a higher low in February. The bulls need to break out of the $3100-$3200 resistance area to set a higher high and continue the uptrend. .
Otherwise, the price will see a big sell-off below $2,000.”
Ethereum is trading at $2,661 at press time.
