Ethereum Name Service ‘ENS’ Adopters Get Massive Airdrop Rewards, Possible Hopes For Those Who Missed Out

Published

on


As we have seen with other protocols in times past, the Ethereum Name Service protocol is also rewarding some early birds on the protocol with an airdrop for its new ENS DAO token. The popular Ethereum Name Service protocol, typically issues nonfungible tokens NFTs that can serve as both Ethereum addresses and web domains.

Ethereum Name Service Protocol Distributes Massive Airdrop

Ever since decentralized exchange Uniswap awarded its users with a retroactive airdrop towards the end of 2020, it has somewhat become the norm all through 2021. Members of the ENS community have been waiting eagerly for this, and now the resulting airdrop has translated to an immediate five-figure remuneration for many holders. That’s not all, for those who might have registered many ENS addresses to many wallets, this could mean a whopping six-figure airdrop.

A total of 25 million tokens were distributed by ENS and the token is presently trading for $85 on a number of exchanges.

Meanwhile, although the claims process for the ENS tokens already started since 7 p.m. on November 8, all qualified domain holders must claim theirs no later than May 4, 2022.

Those That Missed Out On ENS Can Keep Hopes Alive

For those that lost out on the ENS goodies this time, probably as a result of their skepticisms, there just might be hope though.

One simple thing to do is to keep using the protocols that are operational today and keep their fingers crossed. It is almost a certainty that the decentralized web rewards its actual users for their time and efforts, keyword being ‘actual’. While some of these protocols may issue tokens in the future, others probably would not. According to a spreadsheet document that’s been making rounds, some projects have been rumored to possibly do the token thing, including those on alternate blockchains like Terra, Solana, and Polkadot.

There have also been reports that MetaMask is already weighing its options on the token matter.

Another place to look would be with the undisputed reigning champion of NFT platforms, OpenSea. Meanwhile, Coinbase, FTX and a host of other big names have also announced plans for their own NFT platforms. But with many startups springing up and taking off the market share, a token may be the only way to ensure that users stay, especially in an ever increasingly competitive market as we have it.

In conclusion, it’s safe to say that just about any crypto project that doesn’t already have a token, will. Possibly even those claiming they won’t drop one.

Crypto Analyst Nicholas Merten Makes Massive Ethereum Prediction for End of Bull Cycle – Here’s His Target

Published

on

Prominent crypto analyst Nicholas Merten says that top smart contract platform Ethereum (ETH) may grow another 325% before the current bull cycle comes to an end.

In a new strategy session, the host of DataDash tells his 458,000 YouTube subscribers what he thinks it will take for Ethereum to eventually smash the $20,000 level.

“If everything goes perfect for Ethereum, if we get that opportunity to be able to get ETH to launch properly, people using roll-ups, whether it be zero-knowledge roll-ups or optimistic roll-ups, generally ‘layer-2 solutions,’ we could see a $20,000 Ethereum this cycle. I know it sounds crazy but when you look at the logarithmic chart we’ve seen these kinds of percentage returns before.”

Rollups are solutions that execute transactions outside the main Ethereum chain, but record transaction data on it. The two types of roll-ups are zero-knowledge (ZK) rollups and optimistic rollups.

The closely followed analyst says that if Ethereum maintains solid fundamentals, a rally to the $20,000 may not be as overly optimistic as it sounds. He notes that such a gain would only be about half of what ETH achieved in the first five months of 2021.

“I think it’s very reasonable we could see this kind of price level. Somewhere between our neutral and optimistic target. To play it safe, I would say that we’ve got a really solid steady stream of price action for Ethereum ahead of us. The key thing to understand is that there are periods of this cycle where Ethereum outpaces Bitcoin, which makes these higher targets reasonable.”

Ethereum is currently trading for $4,685 at time of writing, up 7% over the last week while Bitcoin has remained almost completely sideways in the same timeframe.

Ethereum price builds the momentum to hit new all-time highs

Published

on

  • Ethereum price develops an entry condition before a test of $5,000.
  • The outperformance of Bitcoin is likely to be sustained.
  • Downside risks remain but are limited.

Ethereum price is up more than 16% for the week, reflecting a resurgence of buying pressure despite the last three weeks of uncertainty. Point and Figure Analysis indicates a bullish entry opportunity is present.

Ethereum price action prepares for another run at $5,000

Ethereum price is positioned to be the primary leader in the cryptocurrency space again. It has broken out above the upper trendline of the bear flag it was trading in, denying any short sellers an opportunity to continue further selling pressure. The $4,800 price level is the final resistance zone that bulls must cross to put Ethereum at new all-time highs.

A double-top at $4,800 currently exists on the $50/3-box reversal Point and Figure chart. That double-top top creates what is likely the final buying opportunity before Ethereum hits its new all-time high. Therefore, the hypothetical long setup is a buy stop order at $4,850, a stop loss at $4,600 and a profit target at $6,250. The projected profit target is derived from the Vertical Profit Target Method in Point and Figure Analysis.

Conservative traders may wish to wait for a pullback from the current double-top and then look for a triple-top to develop. Additionally, conservative traders could wait for a Bear Trap, Bearish Fakeout, or Bearish Shakeout pattern before going long.

ETH/USDT Daily Ichimoku Chart

However, downside risks remain. Ethereum could very quickly develop a deep retracement towards the $3,300 level despite a breakout above the former bear flag. Hidden bearish divergence is now present on the daily Ichimoku chart, warning traders that the current upswing may be a false move. A daily close that returns Ethereum inside the bear flag would likely trigger a move south and invalidate any bullish entry opportunities on the Point and Figure chart.

According to the project’s website,

“Payment experiences should be free from artificial barriers imposed by closed ecosystems. We work together with leading innovators and organizations in the decentralized financial (DeFi) ecosystem to create seamless financial experiences.”

Main features of the Request Network include generating invoices to receive payments in different cryptocurrencies as well as accounting tools for financial management.

The Sandbox co-founder Sebastien Borget says that only Request Network offered the scope of solutions needed to ensure efficient workflow.

“Payments and accounting are challenging for large companies that deal in crypto. Making manual payments to large numbers of blockchain wallet addresses, and recording the transactions took up precious time and energy from the team each month.

We really needed a way to automate payments to our employees and contractors, and easily account for the company’s crypto transactions and assets during annual financial audits.

Using Request Finance has helped us slash the time we spent on making crypto payments by 90% every month. That frees up our time and mental resources to focus on building a better platform for our community of creators and gamers.”

Request Network has forged a number of partnerships as well, including with Maker (MKR), Aave (AAVE), Ocean Protocol (OCEAN), and The Graph (GRT).
