Ethereum network successfully completed its Merge on September 15 which transformed the network from proof-of-work (PoS) to proof-of-stake (PoS) mechanism. However, Ethereum didn’t receive the expected result as the currency started its downward journey right after the merger.
If the ETH/BTC is considered, it appears like Bitcoin is about to see its worst days when Ethereum’s growth rate is considered. Ethereum surged by 60% against Bitcoin from July 13 to Sept 8.
But the last 60 day bull run wasn’t that eye-catching as the flagship currency picked up the dominance while Ethereum lost it after the Merge.
On the other hand, in just 10 days ETH gave up half of its profit after facing 20% correction. However, as per the daily chart Ethereum might see a trend reversal soon.
Ethereum Merge : Buy The Rumor, Sell The News
Meanwhile, Ethereum witnessed an increased selling pressure after the merger was successfully completed. However, a few of the market experts claim this event as Buy the rumor, sell the news.
Though there wasn’t any issue while the network was getting transferred from proof-of-work (PoW) to proof-of-stake (PoS), the zero effect on Ethereum price has created a sense of fear among investors and traders which provoked them to exit from their position.
At the time of reporting, Ethereum is trading at $1,367 with a fall of 3.67% over the last 24hrs.
Additionally, it can be seen that the lead altcoin is dropping against the US dollar as Ethereum price has declined at $1,300 level. Hence, it’s important for the currency to maintain its price range above $1,280 which was a resistance area during June’s trading.
