Sentiment Towards Ethereum Price Is Negative
Santiment tweeted that the “Fear” level in investors has reached new heights.
“The crowd mood toward #Bitcoin and #Ethereum appears to have dropped to extreme negative territory after $BTC fell back under $60k & $ETH dipped back under $2k this week. Historically, buying during this level of #FUD & fear is a #bullish opportunity.”
Mark Cuban Prefers Ethereum Over Bitcoin
Billionaire investor Mark Cuban said that Ether (ETH) is a better store of value than Bitcoin. In a recent podcast hosted by Laura Shin, Cuban said ETH’s versatility makes it a more attractive asset. He added that Bitcoin is nothing more than a store of value.
There are significant differences between the two. Both of them are effective platforms that enable a lot to happen. But Bitcoin right now has evolved to be primarily a store of value and it’s very difficult to use it for anything else.
Bitcoin boasts almost five times the market cap of Ethereum at present. According to Cuban, this doesn’t necessarily mean BTC is five times better. He noted that Ethereum makes for the better choice between the two regardless of market cap size differences. Cuban said that Bitcoin’s utility is inferior when compared to Ethereum. He pointed out the fundamental difference comes down to smart contracts.
There’s just a lot more built in utility in its organic and native form. Just the ability to use smart contracts organically and natively is a significant difference right now.
Cuban referred to Ethereum Improvement Proposal (EIP) 1559 and ETH 2.0 as reasons for investors to buy ETH over BTC currently.
With 1559 everything changes and what happens going forward is really going to impact how people perceive it specifically as a store of value.
EIP 1559 is scheduled to go live this July as part of the London hard fork. It will improve Ethereum’s transaction fee system by replacing the auction model with a floating standard rate mechanism. Essentially, this would lead to a more predictable fee system with the price set by the network, not miners.
Ethereum Price Is Expected To Reach These Levels
The Ethereum price may regain bullish momentum and try entering the $2,000 psychological mark yet again.
