Ethereum Price Prediction: Analysis
Around mid-February, ETH had a bull run which brought the coin to a price of $280. The following days ETH struggled to keep itself around this level, trading mostly around $270 and $260.
But then on February 25th, the price of Ethereum (ETH) plummeted from the $265 to $240 level. The bearish momentum continued, further pulling ETH below $220 support and trading close to the $205 support. However, the market has recovered. Ethereum closed the month at a price of $219,85.
The first day of March began around the same price, and after testing the $226 resistance level, the coin fell back to $218 at the end of the day. March the 2nd, ETH got a boost that propelled it to $230 level.
On March 3rd, the price of ETH also went over the $230 level to create a new intraday high near $235. A correction then followed, and the coin went down to $228 level, ultimately closing to $224,48.
Today, March 4th, ETH is trading at a price of $223.31, down 2.86%. The coin has managed to get past its most recent slip to $220 support. But it started losing its gains after it failed to break the resistance at $235 for the second time in a four-day period. Also, the gains amassed have not been sustained even at $230 support after the challenging comeback from the $210 support level.
The current pivot, resistance, and support levels calculated by WalletInvestor are:
- Resistance Level (R3): 240.638
- Resistance Level (R2): 236.373
- Resistance Level (R1): 230.469
- Pivot Point: 226.204
- Support Level (S1): 220.300
- Support Level (S2): 216.035
- Support Level (S3): 210.131
On March 2, the total record volume of decentralized exchanges operating in the Ethereum blockchain reached its highest monthly number in February 2020, as stated by Dune Analytics and its statistics. Over $372M worth of transactions has been processed on decentralized exchanges, signifying an increase of 62%, which is higher compared to values from January 2020. The preceding all-time high value was $358 million and it was reached back in July 2019.
Ethereum core developers have declared last month that they will be continuing with the ProgPoW update, which is expected to make Ether mining more ASIC resistant. The hard fork is planned to occur around July, three weeks after EIP-1962, an update that will implement cryptographic functions to Ethereum.
This is the third discussion the core developers had regarding agreeing to implement ProgPoW. Many fear that this update will split the community apart again and lead to another chain splitting.
However, James Hancock, Ethereum Hardfork Coordinator, has stated that a split is improbable.
“I have not seen any evidence that there is an ideological or people willing to step up and actually have a network split. If I’m wrong I’ll resign as hardfork coordinator,” said Hancock.
On February 5th, developers finished the formal verification and audit of the bytecode of deposit smart contract for Ethereum 2.0. Bytecode is a low-level code written in Solidity which runs on the Ethereum Virtual Machine (VM as bytecode).
