Ethereum had an excellent run for a couple of weeks. Even the coin surpassed 600,000 transactions a day on its network. This week, it crossed $500, marking a new high, but only to fall instantly. With this, the current market cap of the coin is nearing $50 billion.

Key Highlights

  • Against USD, Ethereum crossed the $500 mark for the first time, setting a new record, but the price fell almost instantly from that peak
  • ETH/BTC depreciated 14 percent week-on-week and is currently trading around 0.0407 BTC

Ethereum Market Cap

After the bullish end of the previous week, Ethereum started this week with a sideways movement. But soon with a buying rage, the value of the coin shoots up to reach an all-time high at $516. This is the first time Ethereum crossed the $500 mark. But due to the high peak resistance, the coin dived instantly to reach $401.

Though the high market activity tried to recover the coin, it further fell to $385. Fortunately, that point acted as a pivot and initiated an upward trend. ETH/USD reached $465, only to face resistance above $463. But a support level at $451 also formed.
