Ethereum Price Slides As Staked Token Reaches New ATH Ahead Of Hyped Merge

18/08/2022 9:27pm


Despite changes in the asset’s price, Ethereum is steadily adding to the ETH 2.0 staking contract. According to the development team, this occurs about a month before the Merge is scheduled to occur. Ethereum Staked Token Hit New ATH According to Dune Analytics data, more over 13.2 million ETH have been deposited to the staking contract, however there are only about 80,000 unique depositors.

A far cry from the peak reached last year, when ETH was close to $5,000, the USD value had soared to just shy of $24 billion. The remarkable results come as the Ethereum development team continues to provide updates on the progress of the switch from PoW to PoS.

Among other advantages, it should make Ethereum less energy-intensive and increase the network’s durability. Numerous well-known crypto insiders predict that it will significantly affect the price of ETH. According to recent claims made by Arthur Hayes, it might increase the asset’s USD valuation in a manner comparable to BTC’s halving. On the other hand, Mark Cuban cautioned that the Merge might initially be a “sell-the-news” event but thinks it’s a good move overall. Price Have Began To Slide According to the weekly shift in the Ether-Bitcoin cross rate, Christophe Barraud, chief economist, strategist, and top forecaster at Bloomberg, Ethereum is poised to lose ground against Bitcoin for the first time in seven weeks. ETH/USD trades at $1,800.
