Summary

Someone has just deposited 7,072 eth, worth more than $3.5 million, to stake on the new ethereum 2.0 Proof of Stake (PoS) blockchain which is expected imminently. Whichever one, he is a longterm eth backer and has just gotten the network 7,000 eth closer to the finishing line of 524,000 eth needed preferably by November 24th. Each transaction seems to demand $1 in eth fees to transfer $16,000 worth of eth to the new blockchain. If the rest follow his (her?) example and meet the minimum by this Tuesday, then the ethereum 2.0 genesis block will launch on December the first, so starting the transition to a new staking network. Meaning this is perhaps an eth ICO buyer or someone involved in the ecosystem or someone who bought in 2016.
