ETH’s dual scenarios after this ‘record’



In the month of June, Ethereum (ETH), the largest alternative token in circulation, saw significant losses. The overall cryptocurrency market is continuing its downward trend, and there is no sign of a speedy recovery in sight. This caused the price of ETH to drop below $1,000 for the first time in over a year.

It would appear that Ethereum is about to establish a new record, but not the most desirable ones. Between June 18 and June 19, the market for cryptocurrency experienced a significant decrease in buying activity.

The single largest liquidation in the history of the platform was noticed by an address that ended with “c2B3c.” The liquidation involved the loss of almost 71,800 ETH collateral positions on liquidity when ETH was worth about $927.

Now, at the time this article is being published, numbers for the same were exhibiting a positive trend on the charts. At the time this article was written, the price of ETH had increased by 14 percent, which came on the heels of it surpassing $1,000. This may be a solid start to see where things are headed.

Despite the fact that this trip has been evidently fraught with difficulties, ETH holders continue to maintain their faith in the highly anticipated changeover (The Merge), the long-awaited upgrade. This transition should put to rest any concerns regarding the influence that Ethereum has on the environment. In a similar vein, it will also result in an increase in the transaction speed.

The aforementioned coin continually destroyed a piece of its own supply in order to fulfill its goal of being ‘deflationary.’ This was done in accordance with the Merge. The most recent statistics, as of the 20th of June, reported an amazing figure. The total number of addresses used for staking Ethereum 2.0 deposit contracts reached 12,917,637.

This indicates that more than 11 percent of the total quantity of ETH, which is now 119,318,828, is being staked in the ETH 2.0 contract at this time. The in-transit merge has been of tremendous assistance to the cryptocurrency network that holds the title of largest in the world. Investors have been preparing themselves for the staking functionality by continuing to deposit Ether notwithstanding Ethereum’s acceleration of the transition towards ETH 2.0.


Keeping with the current pattern, this Merge would also include environmentally friendly adjustments to the cost of the gas. Something for which ETH has received criticism in the past, among other things.

However, it appears that the Merge would be of assistance to ETH in overcoming this anxiety. In point of fact, the average amount of gas used dropped to 82,796.391 for the first time in one month.

Nevertheless, it is important to note that ETH still has a long way to go before reaching its destination. Due to the prolonged downward trend experienced by the market, loyal ETH holders have recently been dealt a terrible hand.

According to Glassnode, the number of addresses that are profitable touched an all-time low approximately 18 months ago.

Despite the carnage on the market, those who have ETH would want some confidence that they may continue to support the cryptocurrency.
