Ethereum Technical Analysis

The first thing we should note is that Ethereum is now close to its 20 day moving averages, which may act as price barrier for the asset. Volatility for Ethereum has been contracting over the past two weeks relative to volatility over the past month. Whether volatility reverts will be something to watch. Trend traders will want to observe that the strongest trend appears on the 30 day horizon; over that time period, price has been moving up. Or to view things another way, note that out of the past 30 days Ethereum’s price has gone up 20 them.

Overheard on Twitter

Behold! Here are the top tweets related to Ethereum:

  • From peter_szilagyi:

    Just realized #Bitcoin uses SHA2 and #Ethereum SHA3. We’re irresponsible for calling both “hash” and are deliberately confusing people. We *must* rename Ethereum’s hash “secure hash” since Bitcoin’s hash is weaker and we should not be dishonest about it.I can do maxi logic too.

  • From chainlink:

    .@ArbolMarket is using #Chainlink for validated weather data, making it the first decentralized weather insurance product live on the #Ethereum mainnet. Farmers can now protect themselves from negative weather events using universally connected smart contracts.

  • From boxmining:

    This whole #Bitcoin vs #Ethereum debate is boring and senseless. If crypto if to win, we’ll have to do it TOGETHER.Comparing two totally different projects and philosophies might be entertaining for podcast, but it’s also nonsense. @Excellion @VitalikButerin
