Ethereum (ETH) startling run of $3,000 and above is far from over. We could see Bitcoin’s main competitor exceed $5,000 before long, as claimed by experienced analysts.
Ethereum, the second-largest digital asset by market cap, breached the $3,000 threshold this week. It more than doubled its 2017 all-time high.
Yesterday, Vitalik Buterin’s masterpiece reached up and planted a kiss on the cheek of $3,500; before gravity saw it slide down to $3,235. Ether crawled back up today to take a breather on a ledge of support about $3,360.
Many traders will surely anticipate ETH to hold track for a while and concentrate. This is before initiating any firm effort to return to yesterday’s levels. Historical models would favor this notion.
In its newest Market Recap Report, analysis by Kraken Intelligence; recommends the ETH rally may still be in the early innings. They state that, even with the most current price appreciation, Ether dominance. Its share of the total crypto market cap; is only getting close to the 18 percent multi-year high achieved in mid-February. It remains far away from the +30 percent earned at the height of the 2017 rally.
Multi-billion dollar explosion
“The multi-billion dollar explosion in DeFi and this year’s NFT frenzy took place on applications built on Ethereum,” stated Pete Humiston, Manager of Kraken Intelligence.
“Past performance does not indicate future prices, but the fact that Ethereum remains firmly at the heart of bleeding-edge activity and innovation in the industry – just as it did in the previous bull market – suggests ETH has plenty of upside potential. With Ether held on exchanges at a 2.5-year low, and institutions warming up to the second largest crypto asset, as well as market participants having locked up more than four million ETH – 600k on Kraken’s secure on-chain staking service alone – ahead of the launch of Ethereum 2.0, the stars are aligning for another significant leg up for the ETH price.”
On page 17 of its 22-page dossier, the record charts “ETH: The Road to $5,200” and uses a logarithmic regression graph to highlight inherent future positions for Ethereum.
“As difficult as it will be for ETH to sustain double digit returns, the case could also be made that ETH still has plenty of upside,” the accompanying notes state.
“Since hitting a multi-year high of ~18 percent around mid-February, ETH’s dominance has to mean reverted down to 12 percent and had trended mainly indirectly. The fact that ETH continues to climb higher while retaining the same market share suggests that ETH has yet to take off.”
