Hayes additionally revealed that the present value of Ethereum represents an amazing shopping for alternative for traders as it’s promoting 76% beneath his mannequin value of $2815.
Hayes: Eth to $5000
In an August 5 put up, Hayes stated the Fed’s pivot towards “supporting development somewhat than preventing inflation” would result in an growth in amount –a state of affairs the place the Feds must print more cash to assist the economic system.
On this situation, when Ethereum Merge ultimately occurs in September, he believes the digital asset would be capable to breach the $5000 mark as it might change into a deflationary asset with excessive demand.
“The speed at which Ether is issued per yr will likely be diminished by ~90% beneath the brand new PoS mannequin … the Ether taken out of circulation will solely enhance because the community grows in recognition … all of those elements collectively ought to nonetheless drive the value of Ether up exponentially.”
No Fed pivot + profitable Ethereum merge
In a state of affairs the place the Feds backtrack on its determination to assist development by printing more cash, Hayes thinks the merge would nonetheless be capable to push Ethereum’s value to $3562.
In response to Hayes, the merge is predicted to drive a “triple-halving’ occasion” for Ethereum. Since Bitcoin’s (BTC) value has all the time reacted positively to its halving, one can anticipate ETH’s value to reply equally.
Hayes continued that if the Ethereum merge fails or is suspended and the Fed pivots its insurance policies, there wouldn’t be any hostile impact on the asset value as it might nonetheless be capable to keep its present stage of $1600.
Nonetheless, a number of individuals can be left upset by the failed guarantees.
Explaining how he arrived at his $1600 prediction, Hayes stated that Ethereum would have gone up by 1.72% with out the joy of the merge between June 17 and July 26.
So, a merge failure will drop the value to $1,099. However since there will likely be extra liquidity from the Fed pivot, he expects ETH to ultimately rise because it did between March 2020 and 2021 when “the Fed expands the cash provide as soon as extra.”
In the meantime, in a situation with no Fed pivot and Ethereum Merge fails, Hayes predicted that ETH would seemingly return to its July 17 low of $1,081.
