Ethereum Sets New All-time High of $2,146 – Binance Rate
At the time of writing, Ethereum is trading at $2,115 after setting a new all-time high of $2,146 only a few hours ago. The $2k price area is now a valuable support zone for Ethereum and ETH maintaining a value above this level will be crucial in ETH pushing higher.
In an earlier analysis, $2.5k was floated as a possible short-term target for Ethereum and if the current momentum is maintained, this level could be reached in the coming week. The possibility of Ethereum hitting this value is further affirmed by a stable Bitcoin that has its eyes set on $60k and beyond.
