Eth to $5000
In an August 5 publish, Hayes mentioned the Fed’s pivot towards “supporting development somewhat than preventing inflation” would result in an enlargement in amount –a scenario the place the Feds must print more cash to help the economic system.
On this situation, when Ethereum Merge finally occurs in September, he believes the digital asset would be capable to breach the $5000 mark as it could turn into a deflationary asset with excessive demand.
The speed at which Ether is issued per yr can be decreased by ~90% underneath the brand new PoS mannequin … the Ether taken out of circulation will solely improve because the community grows in recognition … all of those components collectively ought to nonetheless drive the value of Ether up exponentially.
No Fed pivot + profitable Ethereum merge
In a scenario the place the Feds backtrack on its choice to help development by printing more cash, Hayes thinks the merge would nonetheless be capable to push Ethereum’s worth to $3562.
In keeping with Hayes, the merge is anticipated to drive a “triple-halving’ occasion” for Ethereum. Since Bitcoin’s (BTC) worth has all the time reacted positively to its halving, one can count on ETH’s worth to reply equally.
Hayes continued that if the Ethereum merge fails or is suspended and the Fed pivots its insurance policies, there wouldn’t be any antagonistic impact on the asset worth as it could nonetheless be capable to keep its present stage of $1600.
Nonetheless, a number of individuals could be left upset by the failed guarantees.
Explaining how he arrived at his $1600 prediction, Hayes mentioned that Ethereum would have gone up by 1.72% with out the joy of the merge between June 17 and July 26.
So, a merge failure will drop the value to $1,099. However since there can be extra liquidity from the Fed pivot, he expects ETH to finally rise because it did between March 2020 and 2021 when “the Fed expands the cash provide as soon as extra.”
In the meantime, in a situation with no Fed pivot and Ethereum Merge fails, Hayes predicted that ETH would doubtless return to its July 17 low of $1,081.
