*Price at the time of writing

Ethereum continues its extraordinary price run to break $4,000 today after surging by a total of 99% over the past month of trading. Toward the end of April, Etheruem break toward the upside of an ascending price channel as the market started to turn parabolic.

A few days after breaking the ascending price channel, Ethereum went on to break $3,000. Over this past weekend, ETH struggled with resistance at around $3,965, but this was eventually penetrated today as ETH surged past $4,000.

The latest price increase has now allowed Ethereum’s market cap to grow past legacy giants synch as Wal-Mart and Johnson and Johnson.

One of the reasons for this recent price rally is the fact that institutions are now starting to shift their attention toward Ethereum. A report from Coinshares stated that institutions had bought over $30 million worth of ETH toward the end of April, and institutions are estimated to hold almost $14 billion worth of ETH comboned.

Additionally, the upcoming upgrades to the network continue to act as long-term fundamental driving forces behind the major price increase. ETH 2.0 has been on the cards for a few months and, when this upgrade goes live, it will turn Ethereum into a Proof-of-Stake blockchain bringing in a host of much-needed scalability fixes.

Furthermore, the London hard fork for Ethereum, scheduled for July this year, will include EIP-1559 which will introduce a new fee schedule to the network, expected to decrease the skyhigh transaction fee costs signficantly.

Etheruem now holds a market cap value of around $478 billion.

Let us continue to take a look at the markets and see where they might be heading.
