For months, traders have been debating whether the Ethereum (ETH) price will rise or fall due to a major upgrade to the Ethereum blockchain, known as Shanghai.
ETH price climbed above $2,000 after the upgrade, fueled by renewed enthusiasm that its success led to growth and rising investor interest. It rose in 4 out of the last 5 days, and on April 16, it recorded an 11-month high of $ 2,141 (around $ 2,093 around 10:30 on the 17th Japan time).
ETH is up 77% year-to-date as of this writing. It’s still not close to Bitcoin (BTC)’s 83%, but it’s fast approaching.
“Market pessimism about staking withdrawals has proven to be excessive,” said Sean Farrell, head of digital asset strategy at FundStrat.
