This strong rebound is not something unique about Ethereum as the whole cryptocurrency market is showing a rise from the past couple of weeks. Data about smart contract sector performance in this quarter was shared by a research analytic platform – Mesaari.

He also stated that “Despite macro headwinds, the smart contract sector showed signs of recovery. Heading into Q2 + POW index up 1% + POS index up 4% + dPOS index down 11%.”.
Trends that could allow Ethereum to consolidate over the smart market and achieve dominance over Q2
ETH may continue to maintain its dominance over the smart contract market in Q2. There are a few key factors that will help ETH to expand its control over the sector.
“ There are three primary trends which will help ETH grow in the following months”. Said Wilson Withiam – who conducts research for Messari in his recent tweet.
Wilson also cleared that “ ETH 2.0 will continue to dominate conversations. ETH killer market will become more saturated and the staking market will continue to be under stress”.
If these factors are successful in allowing ETH to utilize its dominance over the smart contract sector in Q2 2020. The fundamental strength of crypto will grow and will also give a substantial price boost to the market.
