Daily Price Outlook
The ETH/USD was closed at $4109.70 after placing a high of $4148.85 and a low of $3895.82. ETH/USD surged on Thursday and recovered all of its previous session’s loss amid positive developments surrounding its ecosystem. Terabithia, a cross-chain contract communication and asset mirroring technology, was launched by Psychedelic, a Web 3.0 development studio that builds solutions for the Internet Computer. This will effectively turn the Internet Computer into a layer-two scaling solution for Ethereum. Users will have the capacity to mirror and operate any Ethereum tokens, fungible and non-fungible, on the Internet Computer blockchain and vice versa. The protocol will tackle the problem of Ethereum network congestion and high gas fees. This news sparked some upside pressure on ETH/USD prices in the market.
A crypto research analyst at Fundstart, Armando Aguilar, has predicted the second-largest cryptocurrency. According to Aguilar, more adoption from institutional investors will be seen in bitcoin and will make the next year successful for BTC. For Ethereum, Aguilar said that he sees the price of Ethereum doing very well in 2022.
Aguilar predicted that Ethereum’s token might reach $9000 by the second quarter of 2022, and for this bullish prediction, he gave a reason for the growth of decentralized finance, NFTs, and Metaverse. He said that institutional investors would take more interest in DeFi, which will push it to new heights, and the trend will lift ETH to $9000. This positive prediction from a crypto analyst added further upside momentum in ETH/USD prices.
A report from statistics collector Glassnode showed that the Ethereum network reached an all-time high of non-zero addresses, wallets holding a positive amount of coins with 70.8 million non-zero wallets as of Thursday. This news also added a positive sentiment surrounding the Ethereum ecosystem and pushed its prices higher to recover all of its previous session’s loss.
