The Chart Pattern That Takes Ethereum To $10K

ethereum eth ether

In a flash, Ethereum is back to trading under $3,000 after just weeks ago reaching a high well over $4,000. The wider crypto market correction got the best of ETH and the rest of altcoins especially, and even managed to take down Bitcoin.
However, if past market cycles are any indication of future results, the crash could be the first touch of an ascending trendline that sends the top-ranked altcoin to around $10,000 per ETH.
How DeFi and NFTs Make For A Very Different Bull Run Than ICOs
During the 2017 bull market, both Bitcoin and Ethereum soared as money flowed into the market. Much of that capital trickled its way down to ICOs, which only further fueled the FOMO for ETH. Eventually, they also led to the collapse of the second-ranked cryptocurrency and the start of the Ethereum bear market.
Today things are very different. The most important altcoin in the space carries the rest of the market on its back. Sure that leads to high fees and slower transactions, but that’s because DeFi is such a big deal and so are NFTs.

These two transcendent technologies are also thanks to Ethereum, and while other chains could take the lead, first-mover advantage is hard to beat. Even though the altcoin collapsed in price recently, the pullback was technical and fundamentals remain plenty bullish.
This could result in the latest selloff being the bottom, and after some gyrating in an ascending pattern, a breakout to $10,000 could be next for ETH.

The pattern in reference is an ascending triangle pattern, pictured above. The pattern also matches the final consolidation phase of the last bull market, before Ethereum ran to all-time highs and the bear market started.

Ether has a lot more going for it this time around, but after a run from $4,000 to $10,000, the market might need a reset – much like the market needed to reset after the rise from $500 to $4,000 over the last year.

According to one trader who also sees the pattern playing out, the target of the structure will be $10,000 per ETH. Adding in an ascending pitchfork channel and some bars from the last breakout projected forward, and the price action would fit.
The path Ethereum takes would only be visible in hindsight, but if accurate, the crypto market has one more leg up before the bull market is over.
