The crypto crash can be unnerving, but the crypto community sustains its bullish position for the Ethereum (ETH) price by June 30, 2002. They are projecting it to soar by 78% at the end of the month.
The CoinMarketCap community has predicted ETH will trade at $3,140 at the end of the month. This latest project has accumulated over 15,362 votes and an accuracy record hitting 65%.
Hence, when you compare the current value of ETH, which is at $1,758, to the projected value of the crypto community, an increment of $1,382, or equivalent to 78.59%, is apparent.

On the flip side, over 8,442 crypto community members had a lower target for ETH, with a trading value hovering at $2,982 by June 30, which projects a spike of $1,224.6 or roughly 69.66% in comparison to its current price.
ETH Shifting From PoW to PoS
Ethereum has been gaining momentum in terms of investor interest and trading value. The shift of Ethereum from proof-of-work to a proof-of-stake mechanism may be at play. The transition mapped out for ETH is bound to improve its speed, scalability, performance, and efficiency.
With the proof-of-stake mechanism, stakers are responsible for validating each transaction. Staking would be equivocal to a deposit of 32 ETH that will activate the validator software.
With the transition to PoS, users get to save from gas fees, which is one weakness of the PoW mechanism with its high gas fees. In addition, it also has a reduced carbon footprint.
On the other hand, ETH blockchain dominance is weakening because of other NFTs moving to other blockchains with lower fees. But, it’s important to note that even though Solana is coming on strong for this quarter, ETH remains on top of the food chain as of this writing.

Bitcoin Pulling ETH By 5%
While ETH has been in a depressive state in 2022, it’s gaining traction and has surpassed the $1.8k mark, and is shooting next for $2k. However, the surge may be related to ETH’s dependence on Bitcoin as the top cryptocurrency has also had an upward trend of 5%.
ETH balances on different crypto platforms have also moved up by 550,459 ETH since May, or roughly $950 million in the total value of inflows into crypto exchanges.
ETH’s correction may be the result of these factors at play. But, it’s mission-critical to always focus on the long game.
