Ethereum Sets Sights on $3,000 as ETH Bulls Take Control. Bitcoin Minetrix Presale Tops $5 Million
Ethereum (ETH) price is on the rise again, continuing the altcoin’s strong performance over the past couple months.
After trading near $1,500 in mid-October, ETH now sits around $2,385, representing a gain of nearly 60% in under two months.
Analysts have turned increasingly bullish on Ethereum heading into 2024, citing improving technical and on-chain signals.
Swimming Past Resistance at $2,340
According to crypto analyst Cryptonary, Ethereum faced near-term resistance around the $2,340 level. However, ETH successfully pushed past this barrier earlier today, reaching as high as $2,385.
In his analysis, Cryptonary noted:
“Despite the nice move-up we’ve seen in the last week, ETH remains out of the main uptrend, which is usually not positive for price. ETH is now forming a pennant pattern that could bring a volatile move. The upside would be $2,340; the downside would be $2,130.”
With Ethereum now trading comfortably above $2,340, the pennant pattern appears to be breaking upward. This could signal further near-term gains ahead.
When examining the market mechanics behind Ethereum’s latest push higher, Cryptonary noted that open interest has declined from $8.47 billion to $7.82 billion. He views this as a healthy pullback, not indicating any overheating in ETH futures trading.
Additionally, he pointed out that the funding rate traders pay to maintain bullish positions has ticked higher but remains relatively subdued. This suggests some growing bias to the upside, but not yet extreme greed or euphoria. Cryptonary sees market conditions remaining fairly balanced around Ethereum in the near-term.
Support sits near $2,130. As long as ETH holds above support, the analyst expects further upside ahead.
“We see ETH potentially breaking up to $2,340 before finding that area of resistance and pulling back from there. We aren’t looking at any short-term trades, but we will DCA into the $2,130 area if price pulls back to there.”
Ethereum Outperforming Bitcoin Ahead of 2024 Halving
Another crypto analyst, Michaël van de Poppe, also sees bullish signs emerging for Ethereum. Specifically, he notes that ETH tends to strongly outperform Bitcoin in the months leading up to Bitcoin’s halving event.
With Bitcoin’s next halving estimated in April 2024, Ethereum could be kicking off its pre-halving rally. If historical trends hold, this would point to a price target above $3,000 for ETH over the next 12 months.
As van de Poppe stated:
“Ethereum starts to rally against $BTC. In the period prior to the Bitcoin halving, 3-8 months before, it’s the best period to allocate towards altcoins. Right now, we might be seeing the exact same on ETH, which means that Ethereum is ready for $3,000+ in Q1.”
Between improving technical signals, bullish on-chain metrics, and historical trends around Bitcoin’s halving timeline, analysts seem increasingly optimistic on Ethereum’s price potential in 2024.
Bitcoin Minetrix Presale Tops $5 Million as Launch Nears
An innovative new project called Bitcoin Minetrix has been gaining rapid traction in recent weeks. The core utility token, BTCMTX, introduces a novel stake-to-mine model that lets users earn Bitcoin mining rewards simply by staking BTCMTX. This groundbreaking approach has resonated strongly with the crypto community, highlighted by the presale raising over $5 million so far. Hitting this major milestone well ahead of the official launch highlights the massive excitement building around Bitcoin Minetrix.
Mohammad Sitaboha, Lutfi Khanfar and Ghazi Sitaboha are highlighted as project’s ambassadors. Their domain expertise across crypto marketing, finance, sustainability, and partnerships will be integral to cementing Bitcoin Minetrix’s success.
Easy Cloud Mining with Stake-to-Mine Model
Unlike traditional Bitcoin mining, Bitcoin Minetrix removes the need for expensive equipment and specialized knowledge. Instead, users can simply purchase BTCMTX tokens and select a staking package to begin passively accumulating Bitcoin mining credits.
These credits are then redeemed to mine Bitcoin via the cloud. This presents a straightforward way for crypto investors to gain exposure to potential increases in the Bitcoin price.
Here are advantages over conventional mining include:
- No or low barriers to entry
- User-friendly platform
- Avoid noise and excess heat
- No maintenance requirements
By leveraging innovations like staking and cloud computing, the project makes tapping into Bitcoin mining simple and accessible for regular crypto users.
BTCMTX Price and Launch Details
The BTCMTX token is currently priced at $0.0121 in Stage 12 of its presale. The price will rise to $0.0122 in fewer than 4 days when Stage 13 commences.
Once the presale concludes, BTCMTX will list on Uniswap and other decentralized exchanges.
