Ethereum Price Slides As Staked Token Reaches New ATH Ahead Of Hyped Merge

Despite changes in the asset’s price, Ethereum is steadily adding to the ETH 2.0 staking contract. According to the development team, this occurs about a month before the Merge is scheduled to occur. Ethereum Staked Token Hit New ATH According to Dune Analytics data, more over 13.2 million ETH have been deposited to the staking contract, however there are only about 80,000 unique depositors. ETH Staked on ETH 2.0 Contract. Source: Delphi Digital The graph above shows how ETH’s amount locked in the staking contract has gradually increased and reached a new all-time high in terms of ether. A far cry from the peak reached last year, when ETH was close to $5,000, the USD value had soared to just shy of $24 billion. The remarkable results come as the Ethereum development team continues to provide updates on the progress of the switch from PoW to PoS.

According to recent claims made by Arthur Hayes, it might increase the asset’s USD valuation in a manner comparable to BTC’s halving. On the other hand, Mark Cuban cautioned tha...

Bitcoin Tumbles As Fed Opts For Restrictive Rates

The price trend for Bitcoin seems to be moving with the set rates of the US Federal Reserve. BTC plunged shortly after the Federal Reserve’s July meeting. However, from the minutes released on Wednesday, August 17, policymakers had discussed more interest rate hikes to fight inflation. They deliberated on the need for checkmate borrowing costs by increasing rates which could restrict the country’s economic growth. By that, they could have the required time and influence in controlling potential inflation. Related Reading: TA: Ethereum Could Take Hit As The Bulls Show Weak Hands It’s not surprising to see the recent performance of cryptocurrency following the news of the Fed’s plans. The assets are pretty sensitive to such changes. For instance, the market saw crypto value halving as the central bank implemented its tightening cycle in March. BTC price data showed a drop of about 2%. This dip went below its high performance from the lows of both July 15 and July 26. With the dramatic appearance of the bears in the BTC market, deliberations are high on different platforms about a possible sell-off. The crypto market has become more vulnerable to the possibility of a further increase in rates and the US restrictive policy. As a result, there could be more spikes of volatility which could confuse the crypto market. Furthermore, the move acts against the current market pricing and anticipation for more cuts in the interest rates in...

Not-So-Diamond-Hands: Bitcoin Long-Term Holders Have Shed 150k BTC Since LUNA Crash

Data shows the total supply held by the Bitcoin long-term holders has decreased by 150k BTC since the LUNA crash. Bitcoin Long-Term Holders Have Dumped A Noticeable Amount In The Last Few Months According to the latest weekly report from Glassnode, the BTC LTHs have observed a sustained decrease of 150k BTC since the crash in May. The “long-term holder” (or LTH in brief) group is the Bitcoin cohort that includes all those investors who have been holding onto their coins since at least 155 days ago, without selling or moving them. The holders who sell earlier than this threshold are called the short-term holders (STHs). LTHs are generally the most resolute investors in the market and thus large selling from them doesn’t happen too often. Generally, the more amount of time a holder has held their coins for (that is, the more aged the LTH has become), the less likelier they become to sell at any point. Here is a chart that shows the trend in the total Bitcoin supply held by these LTHs during the past year: The value of the metric seems to have been trending downwards in recent months | Source: Glassnode's The Week Onchain - Week 33, 2022 As you can see in the above graph, the Bitcoin supply owned by LTHs seems to have been mostly moving sideways since around November of last year. The indicator set a high during the month of May of this year, but since then the metric’s value has been on a steady decl...
