The price movement of Ethereum shows worn-out bulls following an extraordinary increase over the previous five days. Given the tremendous obstacle this uptrend is currently facing, it will probably retrace to reliable support levels in order to refuel. The subsequent increase might push ETH to crucial psychological thresholds.
Here’s AMBCrypto’s Price Prediction for Ethereum [ETH] for 2023-24
Around the $1,280 support level, where the price of Ethereum displayed remarkable endurance, there was a tight consolidation and sideways movement. However, the breakout was almost as remarkable as ETH increased by 25% in just five days, creating a local peak of $1,594.
The price of Ethereum may overcome this barrier and head for the psychologically significant $2,000 level, depending on the state of the market and the bullish momentum. Investors would gain 44% overall from this move, which indicates that this is where ETH’s upward potential is limited.
Given everything, buying Ethereum must be a sound investment in the long term, right? Most experts have positive predictions for ETH. Furthermore, the bulk of long-term Ethereum price projections are upbeat.
Why are projections important?
Since Ethereum has seen phenomenal growth in recent years, it is not surprising that investors are placing significant bets on this cryptocurrency. Ethereum gained traction after the price of Bitcoin dropped in 2020, following a protracted period of stagnation in 2018 and 2019.
Interestingly, much of the altcoin market remained idle even after the halving. One of the few that picked up the momentum quickly is Ethereum. Ethereum had increased by 200% from its 2017 highs by the end of 2021.
Ethereum may experience such a spike thanks to several crucial factors. One of these is an upgrade to the Ethereum network, specifically a move to Ethereum 2.0. Another reason is the Ethereum tokenomics debate. With the switch to Ethereum 2.0, ether tokenomics will become even more deflationary. As a result, there won’t be as many tokens on the market to meet increasing demand. The outcome might increase Ethereum’s rising momentum in the future.
In this article, we’ll take a quick look at the cryptocurrency market’s recent performance, paying particular attention to market cap and volume. The most well-known analysts’ and platforms’ predictions will be summarized at the end, along with a look at the Fear & Greed Index to gauge market sentiment.
Ethereum’s price, volume, and everything in between
Ethereum, at press time, was trading at $1,624, and it was up significantly from the past week. It increased by more than 18% in the last seven days. Thanks to its high ROI, early investors have tripled their investments yearly. It currently holds a market cap of $183 billion.
Ether spot market activity has also increased, with the cryptocurrency surpassing Bitcoin as the most traded coin on Coinbase a while back. Also, while the trading volume for Ether made up 33.4% of the entire turnover recorded in the week ending on 29 July, the volume for Bitcoin came in at 32%, with SOL coming in last.
Even though it can be difficult to forecast the price of a volatile cryptocurrency, most experts concur that ETH may once again cross the $4,000 barrier in 2022. And, according to a recent forecast by Bloomberg intelligence analyst Mike McGlone, the price of Ethereum will conclude the year between $4,000 and $4,500.
Additionally, according to a report by Kaiko on 1 August, ETH’s market share of trading volume will reach 50% parity with Bitcoin’s for the first time in 2022.
According to Kaiko, ETH outpaced Bitcoin in July as a result of significant inflows into the spot and derivative markets. Most exchanges have seen this surge, which can be an indication of returning investors. Additionally, a rise in average trade size is the exact reverse of what has been seen so far in 2022’s downturn.
On 2 August, Open Interest (OI) of Deribit Ether Options priced at $5.6 billion exceeded the OI of Bitcoin valued at $4.6 billion by 32%. This was the first time in history that ETH surpassed BTC in the Options market.12 views
