Ethereum Price Rally Blocked By The 50-day SMA

Billionaire Carl Icahn Prefers Ethereum Over Bitcoin
In a recent Bloomberg TV interview, Carl Icahn, the founder of Icahn Enterprises, praised Ethereum, claiming that it can function as both a store of value as well as a payment system. He said:
With Ethereum, it's the underlying blockchain. So, Ethereum has two things — you can use it as a payment system, you can use it as a store of value.
As for Bitcoin, the US-based businessman said that it could only serve as a store of value. Icahn's net worth is estimated to be $15.6 billion, and he is not the only Ethereum-curious billionaire. A few days ago, hedge fund legend Ray Dalio, who currently owns BTC, also said that transactions on the Ethereum blockchain are more efficient.
Icahn has not yet made a foray into crypto. However, he said that he wants to do it in a “big way” eventually. He said
I’m looking at the whole business, and how I might get involved in it…
The billionaire investor claimed that he could put over $1 billion into digital currencies. All in all, he thinks that crypto is here to stay but warned that many cryptocurrencies issued today might not survive.
According to a CNBC report, market forecaster Jim Bianco praised the crypto space recently. He said:
Some of these coins like Ethereum are going to be a lot higher way down the road. But you’re going to have to stomach through much more of what we saw in the last week coming in the next several months or year or so.
Ethereum Price Is Expected To Reach These Levels
The buyers will need to ensure that the $2,500 support wall doesn’t break since that could trigger a crash to the 200-day SMA ($1,600), which could be catastrophic.
