It’s been almost a hundred days since the Ethereum Merge took place, which allowed the blockchain to bring down its energy consumption by almost 99%. And, although a short ETH price rally was observed following that, the upward trend was soon cut off by the FTX collapse and weak technical indicators. A recent price analysis further shows that, there can be more pain left for Ethereum (ETH) in the coming days of 2023.
Ethereum (ETH) Price Drop?
According to data obtained from CryptoQuant, the Transaction Count metric (30-day EMA) has been continually in a downtrend since May 2021 and has recently marked a new low. In general, bearish stages of the market are typically followed by much-decreased activity from the market players, which results in a lower transaction count metric.
In addition, as can be seen in the chart, each abrupt downward trend in the Transaction Count metric was accompanied by a substantial price drop. This remained the case throughout Ethereum historically. The metric has recently suffered a large drop, which may indicate that there has been a lack of activity. As a result, there is a high possibility that the price may soon see another significant drop to the key support level of $1000.
ETH Reserves On Decline
The Ethereum Exchange Reserve on-chain indicator also reveals that the ETH reserves on centralized exchanges have decreased by more than 30%. As a result, investors are growing their positions and further decreasing price activity.
