  • Ethereum worth $583.94 million has been burnt in the past thirty days, slashing the altcoin’s circulating supply. 
  • Ethereum hit a new all-time high at $4,012 on Binance, ahead of the upcoming Dencun upgrade. 
  • ETH price could target its December 2021 peak of $4,936, close to $5,000, in its uptrend. 

Ethereum price hit a new all-time high of $4,012 for the first time since late December 2021, marking a key milestone for the altcoin ahead of its key upgrade. Ethereum holders are awaiting the upcoming Dencun upgrade, the most significant development since the altcoin’s migration to Proof-of-Stake.

Ethereum burn picks up pace closer to Dencun Hard Fork

Ethereum has been under the spotlight since the altcoin hit a new all-time high on Friday, crossing the $4,000 level, on Coinbase and Binance. The altcoin made a comeback above this level for the first time since late 2021.

Ethereum had a major developmental milestone when it migrated from Proof-of-Work consensus mechanism to Proof-of-Stake, marked by the Merge. The next major milestone is the introduction of proto-danksharding, through EIP-4844, one of the improvement proposals included Dencun Hard Fork, scheduled for March 13. 

Data from ultrasound.money shows that nearly half a billion dollars in Ether have been burned in the past thirty days. This metric has significance for ETH holders since it supports the reduction of the altcoin’s circulating supply and reduces the selling pressure on Ether.

Ethereum price gains are supported by the bullish developments in the altcoin. The next target in Ethereum’s uptrend is likely $5,000, close to the December 2021 peak of $4,936. The Moving Average Convergence/ Divergence (MACD) indicator and the Awesome Oscillator (AO) support Ethereum’s uptrend and signal that the altcoin could rally higher.

A daily candlestick close below the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement of Ethereum’s climb to its 2024 high, at $3,307 could invalidate the bullish thesis for ETH. The altcoin could find support at the psychologically important $3,000 level if a correction ensues.
