Ethereum Weekly (1/27/23)

Ethereum Weekly - Edition 8

Welcome to the latest edition of Ethereum Weekly!

Ethereum (ETH) had its third-straight green candle week gaining just over $50 which is smaller than the previous weeks but positive nonetheless. Current momentum looks set to meet a resistance level of just under $1,650 and it will be interesting to see if the second-largest cryptocurrency can break through the next barrier. If not, ETH could go the other way and test the current floor level sitting right around $1,500.

So what factors will drive the price of Ethereum?

First, the overall crypto market has a huge impact on the price of all coins and tokens with Ethereum being no exception. In reality, the best indicator of the sector's overall financial health may be the price of Bitcoin. Ethereum has a .9 correlation with Bitcoin so as BTC moves so does ETH. Bitcoin, on the other hand, is closely dependent upon the US stock market which is greatly impacted by interest rates. This means that decisions made by the Federal Reserve impact the price of Ethereum. All markets get direction from macroeconomic conditions so Ethereum will do better as the global economy tends to do better. Greater public adoption of cryptocurrencies and institutional investments will also have an impact on Ethereum over the next decade or so along with the success of its own upgrades.

Speaking of upgrades, the recent ETH rally leading up to the next upgrade called "Shanghai" looks very similar to the run-up prior to the "Merge" that occurred in September. While the Merge helped switch Ethereum to a proof-of-stake network, Shanghai will allow those currently staking Ethereum to unstake their ETH tokens. While some believe that there could be some selling pressure when the Ether is unstaked and sold, others believe Ethereum adoption will grow further and more will stake ETH which looks to become deflationary.

The Crypto Greed and Fear Index highlighted below sits at 55 in the "Neutral" range and is up 5 points from where it was at last week.

What is Ethereum?

Ethereum (ETH) is a digital cryptocurrency that is known for being a blockchain technology that operates decentralized apps (dapps) such as decentralized finance (DeFi), non-fungible tokens (NFTs), stablecoins, lending, and more. First proposed by Vitalik Buterin who published a whitepaper in 2013 and went live as a network in July 2015, Ethereum claims it is not controlled by a centralized authority but that can be questioned. Ethereum went through the "merge" in 2022 moving from a proof-of-work to a proof-of-stake mechanism becoming much more environmentally friendly.
