Ethereum price prediction: ETH to climb to $1,300 resistance 1

Ethereum price had a strong start to 2021 as the price quickly found bullish support raising the price above the $750 level. The bullish momentum caused the price to rise to $1,200 before meeting strong resistance. While the bulls managed to cause the price to rise to the $1,350 mark, the price could not hold at the level and declined below.

The rejection caused the price to fall to the $1,000 level before recovering. The price once again observed wave-like bullish activity as the price rose to the $1,400 mark. The price was rejected from the level and fell back to $1,050. Since then, the price has recovered to the $1,200 level and now trades near the $1,245 price mark.

Technical indicators

Across the technical indicators, the MACD shows a bullish reversal and suggests increasing bullish pressure. The two EMAs converged recently and now move in the opposite direction suggesting an increasing buyer momentum for ETH. However, the two EMAs are close together now, suggesting that movement below the $1,230 mark would show a reversal.

The RSI is neutral and sticks close to the 50.00 mark showing low momentum on either side. The indicator is inclined upwards, suggesting an increasing bullish pressure for Ethereum.

The Bollinger bands are currently narrow but show expansion upwards, suggesting an increase in ETH price volatility. Traders can expect ETH to observe an increase in price volatility as ETH heads upwards.

Overall, the four-hour technical analysis issues a buy signal as 14 of the 26 major technical indicators issue buy signals. On the other hand, only four indicators issue sell signals while the remaining eight indicators remain neutral, not leaning towards either side.

The 24-hour technical analysis shares this sentiment as the analysis shows 14 indicators supporting a bullish movement while only three indicators suggest a negative price action. Meanwhile, nine indicators remain neutral, issuing no support towards either side.

What to expect from Ethereum price?

Traders should expect Ethereum price to observe sideways movement at the $1,250 price level before the price breaks out to the $1,300 mark. The high trade volume and the positive technical analyses suggest a bullish breakout.

Conversely, if Ethereum price falls below the $1,200 mark, ETH may revisit the $1,100 support level. Further downwards movement may mean a fall to the $1,000 psychological level.

Binance proposes a real-time token burning mechanism to boost BNB value

Published

on

  • Binance has proposed the BEP-95 aimed to burn a percentage of transaction fees as a deflationary measure.
  • BEP-95 will occur alongside the quarterly token burn and well after the 100 million token supply is achieved.

Binance Smart Chain (BSC) is taking further steps to incorporate an additional deflationary mechanism to increase token valuation. As announced today, Binance (BNB) is introducing a new Binance Evolution Protocol (BEP) known as BEP-95. The BEP stands out from the network’s occasional token burns since it introduced a real-time burning mechanism.

According to Binance, a fixed portion of gas fees collected by validators in each block will be sent to the burn address. The ratio initially set at 10 percent, is adjustable according to changes proposed by the Binance community. BSC validators get to vote on community proposals, where voting power is based on staked BNB.

For a proposal to be reviewed by the validators, it has to receive a minimum deposit of 2,000 BNB (mainnet). All BNB is returned to holders after the finalization of the voting process. A proposal that wins is that which gathers 50 percent of the total voting power on the mainnet. Binance notes that voted-upon parameters are implemented immediately.

Details of Binance BEP-95 token burning mechanism

BEP-95 became relevant as it speeds up the BNB token burn, and makes the network increasingly decentralized. The BNB supply cap is about 168 million tokens and Binance intends to burn until 100 million tokens remain in circulation. This will take about 5-8 years to complete, according to Binance. The network’s most recent quarterly burn wiped out over 1 million tokens, worth about $639 million, from circulation.

However, the latest update from its blog now says the BEP-95 burn “will continue functioning” even after the above target is attained. With the burn, Binance expects the intrinsic value of the BNB token to increase in tandem with demand. The network notes that validators and delegators may receive fewer tokens from staking, but the “fiat-denominated value of their rewards may increase.” Moreover, BNB has multiple use cases that benefit all holders of the token.

Currently, BEP-95 is in the draft stage and the network is yet to give a specific date for its implementation.

Several blockchains use the crypto-burning mechanism to create token scarcity and a subsequent increase in token value. Ethereum, for instance, uses the EIP-1559 for this purpose.

BNB price action

BNB, the fourth-largest cryptocurrency by market cap, was trading at $494 at press time, according to our data. The token has gained 0.8 percent in the day, and 4.8 percent week-over-week. Similar to other digital assets, BNB has rallied fueled by the Bitcoin-led gains. Crypto investor and YouTuber Lark Davis expects “good things” for the BNB price following its launch of a $1B growth fund.
