Ethereum Could Move Toward $500
Analysts think that Ethereum is primed to press higher despite last night’s $40 drop, which took place in the span of two minutes.
One crypto-asset trader noted that even after the drop yesterday, Ethereum remains in an extremely advantageous position on a macro time frame. As the chart shows, ETH is currently sitting above macro supports, meaning it has room to stretch toward $800 and beyond as it continues to hold those technical levels.

Another analyst, one that predicted Bitcoin would hit the $3,000s in 2020 months before it did, also recently shared a chart indicating Ethereum will move higher.
The chart suggests that ETH will soon retest its year-to-date highs at $485-495.

Boosting the expectations of a further ETH rally is the expectation that soon enough, Ethereum 2.0 will launch. ETH2 is a fully-fledged upgrade that will overhaul how the blockchain operates to increase transaction efficiency and reduce transaction costs while reducing the energy usage of the blockchain.
Ethereum Foundation researcher Danny Ryan recently commented on the concerns that the ETH2 deposit contract won’t get enough in deposits prior to the launch:
Ethereum could see further gains as ETH is accumulated to be deposited into the ETH2 contract.
