On April 13, the price of the second biggest cryptocurrency, Ethereum, staged a comeback above the $3,000 level from the $2,950 zone. ETH then moved on to recover at the $3,140 mark.

According a recent tweet by Santiment, its metrics show that when ETH reached the bottom, traders started a heavy selloff, which was a major sign for a coming rebound.

As covered by U.Today recently, the former CEO of the BitMEX exchange, Arthur Hayes, believes that later this year, the two largest cryptos by market cap—Bitcoin and Ethereum—are going to plunge as they are strongly correlated with the Nasdaq 100 index.

He expects ETH to decline to $2,500 by June and Bitcoin to start testing $30,000 before Q3 of 2022 begins.

This summer, however, the biggest Ethereum upgrade, "Merge" is expected to take place, not confirmed so far. This is another name for Ethereum 2.0, which will let the blockchain shift to a Proof-of-Stake model from PoW, make it more enviromentally friendly and greatly reduce its circulating supply.

The shift to PoS is being stress tested now in the first shadow Ethereum fork, per ETH developer Marius van der Wijden.

Billionaire Mark Cuban, a recently turned crypto fan, has commented that he feels "very bullish" on the upcoming implementation of the "Merge."

By now, the second largest crypto has taken a small dip, trading at $3,082 per coin.
