Even though it has experienced a decrease, the current price of the cryptocurrency still represents a 5% increase within a week and a 37% increase since the beginning of the year. With the ongoing recovery of the cryptocurrency market, ETH appears to be among the tokens with the greatest potential for growth. Boasting strong fundamentals and network effects, it could see significant price gains as 2023 progresses, solidifying its position as the top layer-one smart contract platform.
Ethereum’s Shanghai update
Moreover, Ethereum is preparing for the Shanghai update, which will facilitate the withdrawal of staked ETH. Although some have raised concerns that this may lead to a sudden influx of ETH being introduced to the market, it is more likely that this will have the opposite effect by finalizing Ethereum’s shift to a proof-of-stake consensus mechanism. In fact, the ability for users to withdraw their staking rewards is expected to attract more investors to participate in the Ethereum ecosystem.
Once the update is implemented, likely by the mid of this year, Ethereum prices might get a boost.
