Ethereum Surges Near $4K Mark, Investors Eye Potential ATH Retest

By: Isha Das

Cryptocurrency enthusiasts are witnessing an optimistic weekend for Ethereum (ETH), the world's second-largest cryptocurrency, nearing the $4,000 threshold once again for the first time since December 2021. Market analysts attribute this surge to a significant rise in Ethereum accumulation, influenced by several different factors.

Key players in the market, often referred to as 'whales', have collectively recorded over $10 billion in trade volume overnight. A data tracking company, Spot On Chain, suggests that these whales have collectively bought a massive 163,295 ETH in just four days, totalling around $621 million DAI. In addition, over 94% of Ethereum addresses are currently profitable, hinting at low selling pressure and a potential price surge.

The Ethereum community is also buzzing with anticipation over the coming Dencum upgrade aimed to address scalability issues, reduce transaction fees, and decongest the network. Speculations of a potential Ethereum ETF, subject to regulatory approval from the SEC, is further adding to the excitement. If approved, traditional investors will be able to gain exposure to Ethereum without directly owning and managing cryptocurrency, potentially expanding the investor base and increasing the demand for ETH.

While a lot of optimism surrounds ETH, experts advise a cautious approach given several factors that could still influence its price trajectory. The upcoming Dencum upgrade's success, as well as the approval of an Ethereum ETF, are yet to be determined. But with an increase in on-chain activity, whale accumulation, and a profitable investor base, Ethereum seems well poised for a potential price rally in the months to come.
