Eth to $5000
In an August 5 put up, Hayes stated the Fed’s pivot towards “supporting development fairly than combating inflation” would result in an enlargement in amount –a scenario the place the Feds must print more cash to assist the financial system.
On this situation, when Ethereum Merge finally occurs in September, he believes the digital asset would have the ability to breach the $5000 mark as it could grow to be a deflationary asset with excessive demand.
The speed at which Ether is issued per 12 months might be diminished by ~90% underneath the brand new PoS mannequin … the Ether taken out of circulation will solely improve because the community grows in reputation … all of those elements collectively ought to nonetheless drive the worth of Ether up exponentially.
No Fed pivot + profitable Ethereum merge
