After reaching $420, Ethereum’s price value could easily claim the figure of $500. Prominent crypto analyst said,” Makes for a decent case that 420 down to low 400s are area of interest for dip buys before further upside.”
Investors’ Accumulation of Ethereum
The on-chain data shows the whales are busy accumulating Ethereum coin as transactions worth millions moved out of the cryptocurrency exchanges. “258k $ETH moved off Binance in the last 24 hours. Almost 10% of what Binance had in it’s wallets,” says an analyst.
Ethereum’s upgrade, ETH 2.0, could pour a significant change in the price value as well as network adoption. According to market analysts, the price could witness new highs after the launch of Ethereum 2.0. It could also transfer the current consensus towards proof-of-stake which will benefit those investors who are willing to store Ethereum and take passive returns over it. The upcoming update will also push “network’s compatibility, scalability, and security.”
As a result of staking tokens, the Ethereum’s supply will decline, and as a result demand will get a push from those who want to claim steady profit on storage of coins.
