Popular analyst Willy Woo said he believes Ethereum is under US control.

Making the statement on Twitter, Woo added a screenshot from include.watch and said that 69% of Ethereum blocks are OFAC compliant.

OFAC is the Office of Foreign Asset Control, the agency that enforces US economic sanctions.

There are several concerns in the crypto community regarding the centralization of Ethereum. The first is that about 52% of Ethereum nodes are hosted by Amazon Web Services, an infrastructure provider.

Another concern is that 50% of the Ethereum network is controlled by Lido and Coinbase after Merge. This is where around 50% of all staked ETH is kept.

However, the fact that Lido is a DAO does alleviate some of these concerns.
