As Ethereum Price Suffers, JPMorgan Strategist Hits The Asset With A 55% Lower Valuation

22/09/2021 6:00pm

NEWSBTC


The past two days following the weekend close have not been the best for Ethereum. Along with the broader crypto market, the digital asset has suffered numerous dips that saw it break below $3,000 for the first time in a month. Although recovered back above $3,000, Ethereum continues to have a hard time maintain its position above this resistance point. Although hopes are up in the community for recovery, a JPMorgan strategist has warned that the market is likely to see more dips that will drive the price of the digital asset further down. The strategist’s forecast essentially puts Ethereum in a bear market. Placing the bottom of the downtrend at less than half the current value of the digital asset.

The strategist put the asset’s fair value at $1,500, less than half of its current price. Unlike the rest of the market, Panigirtzoglou does not believe that the Ethereal network is the most attractive for investors, even though the price might suggest otherwise. ETH price struggles at $2,900 | Source: ETHUSD on TradingView.com The growth of ETH recently has been attributed to the growth of market applications like decentralized finance. Currently, Ethereum is the leading smart contracts platform, which has seen the highest development of decentralized finance protocols. But even this does not convince the strategist of ETH’s current valuation. According to Panigirtzoglou, the actual valuation of the digital asset should be 55% less than it currently is. Panigirtzoglou points out that with growing competition from other blockchains like Solana and Cardano, Ethereum’s offering is no longer unique and “can easily be replicated by other networks.” The Rise Of The “ETH Killers” Panigirtzoglou elaborated on the growing competition for Ethereum, highlighting that there are just going to be more blockchains popping up to compete with the network in the future. The strategist brought up Cardano’s latest upgrade, which added it to the growing list of competitors for Ethereum. “You’re already seeing competition from Binance, competition from Solana,” Panigirtzoglou said. “And there are going to be more in the future,” he added.

Although Ethereum still hosts the majority of smart contract-related activities in the market, blockchains like Solana have started creeping up to take more share from the leading blockchain. Giving credence to Panigirtzoglou’s belief that these blockchains will make ETH less valuable in the long run. Featured image from Libertex, chart from TradingView.com
