Ethereum hits new all-time highs this May 3

This is revealed by data published by our section CryptoMarkets, where it is appreciated how the digital currency has been increasing in the last hours. Specifically, the digital currency surpassed the USD $ 3,000 barrier shortly after 9:00 pm (New York time), and from that point it continued to rise until reaching a peak equivalent to about USD $ 3,200 at 4:30 am on May 3. .

What is the reason for this increase?

While it is not surprising that the digital currency has reached these new all-time highs precisely because of the existing expectations around its commercial evolution and improvements for its network, these new all-time highs go hand in hand with a series of events that take place. this May 3.

According to reports published by Chinese analyst Colin Wu, this increase coincides with a drop in liquidity present in the main exchanges. In this regard, it is estimated that the availability of ETH on such platforms it fell by 42%, indicating that owners have been drawing their funds into their private wallets, creating a shortage amid growing demand for the digital currency. These data are also accompanied by an increase in the volume of daily operations, which is estimated at some USD $ 30,202 million traded in the last 24 hours.

Another aspect that is focusing the eyes of many on Ethereum is the update that will take place in the next few weeks. Here, important properties will come into being to optimize the operation of the network, among which the implementation of the EIP 1559; which would bring notable improvements in the reduction of transaction costs, hand in hand with the implementation of deflationary properties for the digital currency.

And the last aspect that also goes hand in hand with the aforementioned is the existing enthusiasm regarding Ethereum 2.0, the new version of the network Blockchain, whose smart contract recently exceeded 3,000,000 ETH arranged as collateral. These figures reveal great support for the system of Staking implemented for this new part of the process, and let us remember that these funds housed there are not available for commercial operations precisely because they are blocked generating profits for investors.
