A popular crypto analyst is updating his outlook on two of the top smart contract-enabled blockchain platforms.
Starting with Ethereum (ETH), the pseudonymous analyst Pentoshi tells his 694,700 Twitter followers that the proportion of the second-largest crypto asset by market cap that is staked is now higher than the amount on exchanges.
According to Pentoshi, the price of Ethereum is likely to appreciate once the number of sellers dwindles.
“There is now more ETH staked, than there is available on centralized exchanges.
‘But why is the price not up?’
There will come a point in time, when all the people who wanted to sell have sold and the balance shifts slowly, then all at once.”
The top analyst says that other factors that will serve as a basis for Ethereum to rally include that it now has a burning mechanism that sometimes makes it deflationary.
“While we are probably a ways off yet from the true bull run. We’ve never seen ETH with its new pumpamentals in that type of environment. I think the first time we’ll truly see it is after the Bitcoin halving. Every trade on chain will use it. Deflationary with supply sink from staking. While trading this year I’ll always keep that in the back of my mind.”
Turning to Solana (SOL), Pentoshi says that the 10th-largest crypto asset by market cap is likely to edge lower between July and September.
“I do think you’ll be able to buy SOL cheaper than the current price in the third quarter.
But it’s amazing how many people are writing it off.”
