Ethereum energy consumption had been on the rise through 2021. Most of it had been triggered by the bull market which had brought renewed interest to the market. However, with the market now finally headed into the dreaded bear trend, the interest in the blockchain has waned. As a result, activity on Ethereum is down […]
Ethereum fees had touched new highs thanks to the popularity of the decentralized finance (DeFi) space. As network activity had grown, so had the transaction volumes. The effects continue to linger even into the bear market, although fluctuations between low and high are now more common in the space. Presently, transaction volumes have fallen sharply and ETH fees have now plummeted to monthly lows. Ethereum Transactions At $0.5 Ethereum transaction fees have declined to one of their lowest points this year. Gas costs which have been fluctuating between high and low seem to have found their resting place at lower prices. In the early hours of Monday, the gas costs for the Ethereum network had declined to their lowest point for June. It sat at only 19.8 Gwei per transaction at the time of this writing, which converted to about $0.5 per transaction on the network.

This coincides with a decline in transaction volume on the network, as shown on Messari. The data aggregation website shows that Ethereum’s transaction volume is down more than 80% from its monthly high. On the 13 of June, transaction volumes on the network had sat at more than $10 billion in real volume. Today, the real volume was sitting at $570 million, the lowest it has been for the month. ETH price declines to $1,179 | Source: ETHUSD on TradingView.com Supply has also taken a hit in the month of June. By the end of last month, there was more than 8.6% of all total ETH supply in DeFi. However, as of the time of this writing, there is less than 8.3% of the circulating supply in DeFi. This also translates to a dollar value of under $10 billion when three weeks ago, the value was at $30 billion. ETH Profitability Tanks With the recovery in the price of Ethereum has come some good tidings for investors. But, there is still a gap in the profitability levels from last year compared to this year. Going into the last month of the year in 2021, more than 80% of ETH investors had been swimming in profit. Given that the digital asset had hit a new all-time high in November, this was expected. However, there is a significant drawdown from this point. Data from IntoTheBlock shows that while the majority of ETH investors remain in profit, it is only by a small margin. 52% of wallets are currently in the green while 47% are in loss. This puts only 2% of all investors in the neutral territory, which remains shaky.

The major reason for this is all of the competitors that are moving into the DeFi and NFT space. Solana especially has been giving Ethereum a run for its money in the NFT game, triggering an exodus towards the network which offers faster transactions and lower fees. Nevertheless, Ethereum remains the second-largest cryptocurrency by market cap. Currently trading at $1,200 at the time of this writing, the cryptocurrency boasts a market cap of $149 billion.

Since crypto prices have fallen to their lowest point, now is the ideal time to “Buy-the-Dip.” But during these brief price declines, traders appear to be shorting cryptocurrency more than they are buying it. “Buy-the-Dip” Sentiments Does Not Stop Crypto Shorting More short sales or shorting occur in altcoins than in bitcoin. In the past day, short holdings in Bitcoin (BTC) have averaged roughly 51% across exchanges, while short positions in altcoins have averaged about 55%. BTC/USD hovers around $20k. Source: TradingView Santiment, an on-chain analytics tool, states that data on the average funding rate for Bitcoin and altcoins relative to the price of bitcoin shows that traders continue to short altcoins at every minor decline. The long/short ratio for Bitcoin, in contrast, is unchanged despite price swings. “As prices gradually fell on Sunday, traders have shown that though they may proclaim to be buyingthedip, they are shorting more on these mini drops. Interestingly, this only applies to altcoins right now, indicating that Bitcoin is being flocked to as the safe haven.” According to Coinglass data, traders kept shorting crypto on Monday. In the last 24 hours, a $25 million liquidation of Ethereum (ETH) witnessed 56 percent shorts. Polkadot (DOT), Solana (SOL), XRP, Cardano (ADA), and BNB, meanwhile, saw 55 percent, 59 percent, 63 percent, 67 percent, and 53 percent shorts.

Bitcoin price action on monthly timeframes has made a historic move to the touch the lower Bollinger Band – a popular technical indicator and volatility measuring tool. Although he warns there isn’t yet a sign that a bottom is in, the tool’s creator says where price action tapped is a “logical” level for such a bottom to occur. Unprecedented Bitcoin Price Action Taps Monthly Bollinger Band For First Time In History Expectations for Bitcoin price in 2022 were closer to $100,000 per coin and above. Yet the top cryptocurrency today is trading close to its former 2017 all-time high at $20,000. But unprecedented macro conditions has caused unprecedented price action in Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies.

Time To Pay Attention: John Bollinger Points Out Logical Level For Potential Bottom The Bollinger Bands are a technical analysis tool that can help to measure and predict volatility, or find areas of potential resistance and support. It was created in the 1980s by John Bollinger, who today is a frequent Bitcoin speculator. It relies on a 20-period simple moving average and a dynamic upper and lower band set each at two standard deviations. Mr. Bollinger pointed out the touch of the lower Bollinger Band in a new tweet, where he suggests the area would be a “logical” level to bottom. Bollinger did warn, however, that there still aren’t signs of such bottoming yet. In the past, Bollinger was able to call out the April 2021 peak by spotting a “three pushes to a high” bearish reversal pattern with striking accuracy. The analyst says his tools later confirmed what he says was an “M-type” double top. Picture perfect double (M-type) top in BTCUSD on the monthly chart complete with confirmation by BandWidth and %b leads to a tag of the lower Bollinger Band. No sign of one yet, but this would be a logical place to put in a bottom.https://t.co/KsDyQsCO1F — John Bollinger (@bbands) June 27, 2022 Bollinger also shared in his chart a look at ancillary indicator, B%, which also has set historical lows.

The Bitcoin Mayer Multiple has recently sunk to a lower value than the bottom of the previous cycle. This is the first time in the history of the metric that such a trend has formed. Current Bitcoin Cycle’s Mayer Multiple Low Is Deeper Than Last Cycle’s As per data released from the analytics firm Glassnode, the current value of the BTC Mayer Multiple is around 0.478. Before seeing what the Bitcoin Mayer Multiple does, it’s best to look at a basic explanation of a “moving average” first. A moving average (or MA in short) is an analytical tool that averages out the value of any quantity over a specific period of time. As its name implies, it moves forward along with the quantity, and changes its value accordingly. An MA can be taken over any timespan, whether that be 100 days, 72 hours, or even10 seconds. Related Reading | Why Pain May Not Be Over For Bitcoin Holders Just Yet The bigger MAs are usually quite useful for long-term analysis as they smooth out any irrelevant short-term fluctuations. One popular moving average for Bitcoin is the 200-day MA, which has historically indicated a bear market whenever the price has went below it, and a bull market whenever the price has crossed over it. Now, what the Mayer Multiple does is measure how much the price of the crypto has deviated from this 200-day MA. The below chart shows the trend in the metric over the course of the history of Bitcoin: The value of the metric seems to have been below 0.5 in recent weeks | Source: Glassnode In the graph, the blue line is for the Bitcoin 200-day MA and the green curve represents the points where the Mayer Multiple would have a value of 0.5. As is apparent from the chart, the price of the crypto has sunk below this 0.5 Mayer Multiple line only a few times in the past.

In fact, out of the total 4163 trading days for the cryptocurrency so far, only 87 have been spent below the green line, which comes out to be about only 2%. A pattern that the Mayer Multiple followed before this cycle was that all successive cycles observed higher bottoms than the low of the previous one. In the cycle so far, the metric has already dipped to 0.478, which is less than last cycle’s bottom of about 0.511. This is a first occurrence in the history of Bitcoin.
