EIP-1559 Has Burnt 800,000 ETH
The Ethereum blockchain has burned around $3.8 billion worth of Ether (more than 800,000 ETH) since the implementation of EIP-1559, which has likely contributed to the ongoing rally for the second-largest crypto asset.
In August 2021, EIP-1559, also called the London Hardfork, introduced the concept of burning a portion of the gas fee for all Ethereum transactions. EIP-1559 was introduced to stabilize the volatility of transaction fees on Ethereum. However, it also added a deflationary mechanism to its native asset, ETH.
Since the implementation, more than 800,000 ETH has been burned, per the latest data. This means that nearly $3.8 billion worth of ETH has been taken out of the supply.
Notably, ETH is the second-largest cryptocurrency and the native token used to pay for all transactions on Ethereum. The blockchain underpins the majority of value locked in decentralized finance (DeFi).
The sustained gas fee burn and high demand for ETH across hundreds of dApps support the argument that the asset has become a good store of value or “ultrasound money,” according to its founder Vitalik Buterin. EIP-1559 implementation has also become a major catalyst for ETH’s rally over the last few months.
Ethereum Price Is Expected To Reach These Levels
Looking at the Ethereum price chart, ETH has fallen into the red during the current session. If sellers can push the price down, then we could see ETH drop towards $4700. However, if the price recovers, then it could push to $4850.
