It was 7 years ago this week that Ethereum hit its ATH in BTC terms, and since then it has given up about 2/3 of its value in BTC. This happened despite the massive growth in ERC-20s, DeFi, NFTs, DAOs, Layer 2s, and the "Triple Halving" economic switch to POS which also cut the inflation rate to negative over the last year and under 1% annually for the last 3 years. To say that Ethereum has underperformed expectations is an understatement.

well pretty much. Halving hype, halving gets priced in heavily, nothing happens after halving. Months later price drops heavily "halving was a scam! I'm knew it, i'm out!".. price explodes to ATH. IMO right now we're waiting for the -20% in a day fase before the explosion.

I love the phrase "down to 60k". Someday we'll be hearing "down to 100k" the same way 15k was seen as a fall when it was the previous ATH

Everything is undervalued right now, imo especially ETH. Considering that the ETH ETFs can start trading on July 2nd, you know how everyone gets surprised by these news when we are close to the date. I see a great leg upcoming. Also, check that SP500 and Nasdaq are at ATH. All the profits will flow to crypto, the easiest way being through SPY and QQQ to the BTC and ETH ETFs. Not only ETH, but everything in the crypto market is also undervalued in this macro scenario.

Normal market sentiment, nothing goes up forever, people take profits, I would not be surprised if we see sub 40K before new ATH. Pro tip: dont put all your savings at the top maybe

Mentions:#ATH

Bro saving for the long-term in BTC is fine but you should expect 30% drops and up to 18 months for the price to recover back to ATH. Seriously

Mentions:#BTC#ATH

Yeap, and to be more precise — below the previous ATH consolidation levels, which we had a double top in 2021, so the consolidation was quite long over there as well. But! First have to break out of this consolidation. So before that happens we might as well see a 30-50k BTC (where 30k is very unlikely).

Mentions:#ATH#BTC

Alts are, Bitcoin is still sitting near it's 2021 ATH. These capitulation events are common, although brutal. True alt seasons happen after BTC rallies exponentially which is more likely to start end of year but truly happen during 2025. Until then, some coins will get lucky - but this won't be the last alt market blood bath.

Mentions:#ATH#BTC

Alt bagholders are getting rekt... Remember how they didn't want to buy btc because the returns were too "low" and it wasn't "worth it"? Instead they chose a far riskier option that underperformed and is probably down 50-70% against USD in the last 3 months and probably -90% from its ATH 3 years ago. You're a genius if you say that a 50% YTD is "too low" while bagholding a shitcoin that is -50-80% in that timeframe...

Mentions:#ATH

Spy ATH and dumping. Ouch! At least last year it went down when Spy went down

it's not even that low. do you expect it to be ATH 24/7

Mentions:#ATH

I get what you're saying now. You're saying it won't drop below the current consolidation levels, not below the ATH. That makes more sense and yes, that seems likely.

Mentions:#ATH

P x Q = revenue. Q was always going to happen. Price is borderline ATH. If price needs to double….

Mentions:#ATH

I’ve seen some painful alt drops in my time but with BTC being stable near an ATH, this is definitely up there with the worst.

Mentions:#BTC#ATH

Same difference. It’s still in the range. Except now it’s more likely, as BTC hasn’t broken out of the ATH range, so technically this range hasn’t yet became support.

Mentions:#BTC#ATH

Taking your stake out and riding the pure profit is not a bad idea, particularly if you bought around ATH. It's a pretty conservative option, but you do still need a sell price in mind for the remainder.

Mentions:#ATH

Yes, until the next ATH

Mentions:#ATH

>BTC has def dropped below its previous ATH Where? What date? And below what price to what price? (A 20% drop from the previous 19-ish, to 15.7-ish is an about 17% drop, and it’s a drop from the top wick, and not from where the ATH consolidated a bit distributing a lot of coins there. So it really didn’t drop.) You’re giving 55, and 58k as levels you would expect to see a drop during the next bear. Which is perfectly within what I talked about — BTC consolidated at those levels for a long time, and they are considered part of the previous ATH consolidation. Dropping below that might indeed happen, but it would be a flash sale, for barely days, or maybe hours, and would only show huge strength in the market, and be a powerful impulse to another rise. That’s based on previous BTC behavior, which is subject to change at any time, of course.

Mentions:#BTC#ATH

Yes BTC has made it past its ATH

Mentions:#BTC#ATH

Prepared how? By selling more earlier? Miners are in the business of selling Bitcoin. It is all they will ever do. The only variable is when they sell it. Selling it now near the ATH is actually the smartest thing to do.

ZkScam for sure, so many wallets getting max allocation (100k) with 0-9 tx is bs vs 0 for people active for over a year.

In order to respect this timeline, mining rewards are halved every few years. > > Since anyone who wants to validate transactions is forced to complete a very hard math problem (which becomes harder the more people are mining), no one can cheat in new transactions.

I'd argue, the rise of cryptocurrencies may be a part of this crumbling. In fact, I'd go as far as to say that, Bitcoin replacing the US Dollar would usher a chaotic age of international relation. > > The world has shrank a lot since the rise of internet. The fact is that the stability of the world is much more precious than ever. Everyone can see what happens in any other country and how the supply chains which guarantee our comfort are of the utmost importance. YET, we are pushing forward a great disrupter of balance. > > Permissionless can help terrorists, permissionless can help crime.

A viable alternative to fiat money. But anyone with a neuron or two could realize that the fluctuation in the value of Bitcoin is crazy. Some pedentic nerd and bitcoin maximalist could argue that 1 BTC = 1 BTC BUT if you don't know how much you'll need to put food on the table then BTC is not working as a currency. Yes inflation is lowering the value of Fiat BUT fiat doesn't see wild swings of + or - 30 % in most economies. > > While not being really MONEY I'd argue that Bitcoin doesn't WORK. To work the economy needs money to move. 100$ could buy groceries then be used to pay the local brewery, the butcher and many more people before going back to a bank account. This movement has created economic vitality. Bitcoin, most of the time, is seen as an investment vehicle such as gold. I'd argue that these vehicle are not valuable for society since the freeze money in place. > > In a bank, your money is working.

Subsidies could prop up the green sector far better than the mining farms that go with windfarms. > > Seeing Bitcoin as one of the biggest leverage of the green sector is a non-sense. Optimization of the energy sector means that the variable production should allow to reduce the use of fossil energy. Not allow to waste energy in a senseless project. > > ​ > > # Conclusion: The harsh truth is, we may be the bad guys. > > Partaking in an economic sector which allows for a disruption of world order, which doesn't help the economy and which is wasting energy may not be beneficial.

I agree with almost everything you're saying, but BTC has def dropped below it's previous ATH. It does every bear market. We're ranging right now, which is great. Building lots of market structure, so a great level of support, but I would absolutely expect us to drop below this point during the next bear market unless there's a drastic shift in how the market operates. In any event, if we lose 63k then I'm expecting a continuation to 58k, and potentially even 55k if we lose the 58k level. Would expect a bounce back to the top around those levels. If we lose 55k, and it's not a fakeout, that would invalidate the range and I would expect a bigger drop. If we lose 55k briefly but it IS a fakeout and we re-enter the range, then that would indicate to me that our next trip to the top will be our last one before we break up out of this range and go parabolic.

But what if Ethereum Foundation and vanilla investors who are close with them manipulated the market (which is very possible to do when you own such a high % of all coins) and sold tops and bought lows to own even more coins? > > This is obviously just a speculation but the initial premining of coins is a fact and everyone should be aware of this.

To work the economy needs money to move. 100$ could buy groceries then be used to pay the local brewery, the butcher and many more people before going back to a bank account.

A public blockchain uses internet-connected computers to validate transactions and achieve consensus. Bitcoin is probably the most well known example of a public blockchain, and it achieves consensus through "bitcoin mining."

But Bitcoin offers its history and shows that it can survive the disparition of a big part of the network. > Decentralization allows for parts of the network to disappear and for the rest to take the mantle of securing the network. Yes, mining pools may grow too large for their own sake BUT in the end (nothing even matters) Bitcoin is heavily decentralized. It is so decentralized that, when China (which had a big part of Bitcoin mining) banned mining, Bitcoin just went through like nothing happened. Yes the hashrate fell a bit, the value too, but if we look back, it was nothing extraordinary. > > The resilience of Bitcoin is largely due to the fact that the hashrate symbolizes competition=> If the hashrate falls, then it is more profitable for other miners to keep mining or for new miners to start mining. This balance is what makes Bitcoin very resilient. > ​ > So if Bitcoin is highly secure and if it can survive part of the hashrate going bye bye, what makes it so good? What is the difference with any POW Cryptocurrency right now? > > > > # 3) Bitcoin: propping up the green energy sector. > > POW uses energy. One of the biggest concern about POW is the energy. While Ethereum was using GPUs and was asic resistant. Bitcoin mining is built differently. A long time ago, under oath, people discussed the environmental impact of Bitcoin Mining and I made a post explaining what was said: > ​ > The Energy Fud Was Killed > The most important thing that happened: The narrative that Bitcoin is too energy intensive was totally reversed. > Experts of the sector explained that, Wind Farms and Solar Farms, have a variable load. This variable load means that sometimes they lose money because they produce too much and there is not enough demand. Bitcoin mining provides a variable base load for these projects. What it means is that, mining can be turned on and off depending on demand. It was revealed that most of these wind and solar farms would simply not exist without Bitcoin Farming as baseline customers. > There are still miners that are using coal plants and fossil fuel but the leaders of the industry are developing in tandem with the green energy sector. > > My write up about the congressional hearing is still true and thanks to the infrastructure act, green energy will continue to grow and to be cheap.

Commenting on my own post to say… Kendu has been sending! Featured in Shib mag - this confirms the shib connections but left A LOT of open ended hints at future collaborations. It states that Kendu is a part of the shib ecosystem. What this means is not yet clear, but bullish nonetheless.( read here: https://magazine.shib.io/article/665f5604dc89ea0001834eaf?woof=articles-5-edition-27) This spurred the next leg up. We hit an ATH around 280M and are consolidating nicely in the 200M range. Great entry point right now! This project is aiming for the tens of billions in market cap. We’re talking 50 - 100B here. 10B by end of year 2024, or the dev staples a piece of paper saying “jeet” to his head. Multiple CEX’s have started listen Kendu on their own volition. Bullish! Even better - Kendu is not providing liquidity. That means these exchanges need to buy their supply the same way is common folk do. In other news, Kendu broke 10K holders and is sitting at 10621 at the time of this update. It took the same amount of time to go from 0-1K holders as it did to go from 1k - 10K. The growth has been exponential. So long as these metrics are improving, you know the MC will follow suit!

Dude, the Europeans on here have always been so butthurt and in denial about American influence on the markets. I've been here since 2019 and they've always been like, "An American ETF won't matter. So and so country already has one and it didn't do anything for the price." Then the US finally approves one and we make a new ATH in record time. You can hate America or its politics all you want, but the fact of the matter is it's a pretty big country with A LOT of money to throw around. Not to mention they still have a ton of influence on the world, positive or negative. Denying that is just putting your head firmly and deeply into the sand.

Not what I mean. People say that this cycle is different, because BTC broke the rules and made ATH before halving. But it's different because inflation is really strong. I think real ATH will be 6-12 months after halving like always.

I mean, what you say it's true but when people talk about ATH nobody takes into consideration the dollar inflation. This is true not only in crypto but also in stocks and traditional markets

I don't understand how bitcoiners are so ignorant Bitcoin this cycle is lower than 2021. Since 2021 we have 15% inflation. 69k in 2021 are worth 80k today (with ATH in 2021 you could buy more products and services than ATH in 2024). Has BTC made 80k? No. It's dollar who is losing value at rapid speed. If you want to see accurate chart open BTC XAU instead of BTC USD, according to BTC XAU pair we are lower than 2021 and never broke out: [Watch 5 year chart](https://www.investing.com/crypto/bitcoin/btc-xau) We still cannot break 2021 resistance, we are still hanging there. 80k would be real ATH today.

The handful of friends who listened and bought some coin have never come back to tell me it was a bad move. The ones who still didn’t buy any make it a point to bring it up anytime a new ATH is met. Wishing they bought some and still never do.

I 10000000% disagree that BTC is similar to real estate and silver. BTC is going down again after ATH due to EFT approval (aka mainstream acceptance). Otoh real estate keeps going up and up. Silver rises slowly but rises. BTC will need continual inflow of cash to prop value above where it is. The end game with BTC is the implosion of USD... right? But the US and China governments are creating digital currencies and will not all BTC to ever be legal tender

‘Biggest altcoin season we have ever seen’- that arrogance is the problem right there. There is zero certainty around that, and imo most tokens will never reach ATH’s again. So much of the projection is based on a lazy analysis of cycles repeating, and yet fail to take into account: a/ the once in a generation economic event/bubble of 2021’ where everyone in retail went to the equity/crypto casino to gamble- the liquidity available due to ‘free money’ isn’t going to repeat in 2024 within an economic environment governed by inflation and high borrowing rates. b/ that in 2024 there are literally thousands more tokens all competing for a limited amount of money inflows- in 2017 and to a certain extent 2021 every token was a winner just because they existed, but imo we are reaching a tipping point in the industry where the failure rate of protocols is going to increase and projects simply fail. Added to that many were simply VC plays got investors to get in and out with quick vesting periods with little intention of long term development.

Once $HEGE reaches new ATH it will explode and reach 30 or even 40M in one week

Honestly trading sideways around the ATH of $70k is the most bullish possible pattern. the longer we stay here the better because this price will become normalized and once it becomes normalized in people's minds it becomes the new floor price. We just had an amazing bull run to new ATH, you need to have pauses in between bull runs and we're getting flat instead of a dip which is incredible. The next big move will be up

No mate- the vast majority of development, daily transactions, and TVL are still happening in the Ethereum ecosystem. You’re conflating L1 fees with usability, which is completely redundant when most DAPPs will ultimately be on L2’s anyway. My point wasn’t to dismiss Ethereum, it was to distinguish ecosystem TVL from the utility of the actual token (which is not designed as an SoV). However the utility that Ethereum provides as a smart contract L1 currently is still more that 99% of the market at this point. I got downvotes with other comment, I guess people don’t want to acknowledge a scenario in which tokens don’t ever reach previous ATH’s- I don’t really care either way but I think people are buring their heads in the sand in terms of the number of protocols that are actually ‘going to make it’. As for Algorand, imo it sits in that same bucket- for the primary reason that it operates as a centralised protocol, so its success is determined by how well it ‘keeps its moat’ rather than interoperability between chains/layers- in that respect it’s a ‘small’ protocol project relative to Ethereum. It’s also a VC led project, and its goal is to return value to its investors (the VC’s, not token holders)- and much of that value has already been returned anyway (most vesting ended in 2021), so the next ten years will be more about raising further investment rounds to provide more income streams/exits to investors than on development of the actual network. Just my 2c, happy to be wrong.
