Ethereum price fell amid a broad selloff in the cryptocurrency market, fueled by fears of a brewing property bubble collapse in China.
There’s a lot of fear and uncertainty in the crypto market right now. With news that China has officially declared all cryptocurrency transactions illegal, the Ethereum price, like the rest of the market, is under attack.
Ethereum Price Analysis:
The Major altcoin has lost 5.76% in the last 24 hours. Although it is now seeking to construct a firm support base at $3000. ETH Price had a tumultuous start, rising to an intraday high of $3,114 in the early morning before reversing course.
To reach the first big resistance level at $3,149, Ethereum would have to break past the $2,942 pivot. Support from the larger market, on the other hand, would be required for Ethereum to reclaim the $3,100 barrier. Unless there is a sustained crypto rally, the first significant resistance level and Friday’s high of $3,160.48 will likely act as a ceiling on the upside.
Network Activity is Stagnant
According to Santiment, most speculators are shifting away from Ethereum (ETH) in pursuit of better options with larger returns on investment.
Exchanges are seeing an influx of Ethereum, implying that people are selling their holdings in response to the recent marketwide crypto slump.
Santiment claims that network growth has been static for several months before the price of ETH fell.
This is attributed to growth in other Layer-1 initiatives like Avalanche (AVAX), Fantom (FTM), and Cosmos (ATOM), as well as decreased speculation in the non-fungible token (NFT) market.
