Ethereum price analysis: ETH/USD plunges a monstrous 10%; bears are unstoppable



  • Ethereum smashes several lifesaving support to trade below $200 for the first time in October.
  • ETH/USD struggles to make headway above $200; easiest path is to the south.

The cryptocurrency market has turned bearish on Thursday following two weeks of consolidation. The sudden drop has not been explained while a research firm says that Bitcoin whales are not entirely behind the up and down swings in the market. The research was released by Chainalysis and took into account the activities of 32 biggest Bitcoin wallets. The research firm dived into the investigation following an article by Bloomberg which insinuated that a Bitcoin Whale sent the market tumbling while Bitcoin dropped 15%. However, the results of the research show that the claims were unfounded.

Prior to today’s overarching fall, Ethereum was stable above $220. In fact, it has been hammering at the resistance level at $230 since this week started. The buyers had eyes on $250, a level that would open the door for gains towards $300 and beyond. The declines have not only broken the support at $220, they have smashed a couple of other lifesaving support zones at $205 and $200 respectively. ETH/USD also tested the nest support at $195 before the ongoing weak recovery began.

Ethereum price is currently dancing with $200 while the bulls are pushing for a pull back above the next broke support at $200. Looking at the chart, TH/USD is likely to correct lower towards $190 as opposed to making headway above $200. This is because the indicators like the RSI and the MACD keep sending negative signals.

Ethereum Mining Pool Receives Mysterious $300K Blockchain Payout



Ethereum mining pool Sparkpool received a payout of over 2,000 ETH (worth $300,000) just for mining one block on the ethereum blockchain Tuesday – a figure that’s about 600 times the network’s standard block reward.

Miners who secure blocks are programmed to be awarded 3 ETH (about $500) for every new transaction block added to the ethereum blockchain. On top of this, there is also a small payout attached to transactions incentivizing miners to validate and include new transactions into a mined block.

Yet, with only 210 validated transactions, Sparkpool received 2,103.1485 ETH at block number 7,238,290, according to data from ethereum block explorer Blockscout.

As highlighted on Twitter by Jimmy Zhong – co-founder of decentralized application platform IOST – the strange activity could be seen as a random fluke, with one ethereum user (or perhaps multiple) accidentally attaching abnormally high transaction fees to their payments.

Alternatively, it could be seen as a sign of goodwill from an anonymous supporter of the ethereum mining community, which in recent days has been divided over a contentious proposal to change which type of mining chips can be employed by miners seeking to compete for rewards.

Others suggested it could be a less altruistic attempt to “wash” money through the ethereum blockchain, obfuscating that it might have been illegitimately acquired.

But if past crypto history is any indicator, the likelihood of an innocent human error is not as outlandish as one might assume. Back in July 2014, one bitcoin user attached 30 bitcoins worth of transaction fees to a 38 bitcoin transaction due to an accidental error in typing, an error that despite enhancements in UX, is not altogether uncommon in the industry at large.

The one-day chart pictures a downtrend from $499.01 to $144.62. On the other hand, the uptrends are recorded from $82.82 to $103.22 and $103.22 to $120.42. The coin has its immediate resistance level at $155.99, after which the strong resistance is at $219.04. The coin’s immediate support is seen at $103.17 and there is strong support at $82.72.

Klinger Oscillator has joined the bandwagon and is pictured celebrating the return of the bull as the reading line turned north after its crossover with the signal line.

Parabolic SAR is also seen rejoicing as the dots have aligned below the candlesticks, acting as a support system against the bear.

RSI shows that the cryptocurrency is currently overbought in the market as the buying pressure is more than the selling pressure.


The coin continues to indicate a bright future and the bear’s influence over the market is seen falling as the day passes. This is mainly because the bull is supported by Klinger Oscillator, and Parabolic SAR from the one-day chart, and Chaikin Money Flow from the one-hour chart.
