The world’s second largest cryptocurrency by market cap is currently trading at $342 after bouncing from the $316 level of support over the weekend.
While holding above $316 will be key, in the short term Ethereum is showing signs of weakness with the four-hour 50 EMA crossing the 200 EMA to the downside for the first time since June.
The velocity and efficiency of the recent break down in price can only be attributed to the lack of long-term belief in DeFi projects like Sushi and Yearn Finance.
Over the weekend Sushi, a yield farming protocol, crashed by 80% as the lead developer controversially liquidated his Sushi tokens for $15 million before transferring ownership of the project to FTX CEO Sam Bankman-Fried.
The token, which reached an all-time high of $11 on September 1, is now worth $2.73 after bouncing from a gruelling low of $1.21.
A key level of resistance to look out for if Ethereum can recover in the next few days is $366, while a potential target of $284 may also be on the cards if $316 breaks.
Buterin had proposed that Bitcoin needed a scripting language. He decided to develop a new platform with a more general scripting language when he couldn’t get buy-in to his proposal.
