Naeem Aslam, chief market analyst at AvaTrade, believes that the crypto market is positive at the moment, as Bitcoin has topped $22,000 and Ethereum keeps moving toward the long-expected Merge.

This event, switching the second largest blockchain to Ethereum 2.0 and proof of stake, is going to be the main focal point, he tweeted.

Now, traders are keeping their eyes on the ETH price, watching it carefully.

Popular on-chain data vendor Santiment has tweeted that as Ethereum Merge will happen later this week, on Sept. 15 as expected, the number of mentions related to this long-awaited upgrade has surged drastically. Traders believe ETH volatility is inevitable too, though.
