Hayes additionally revealed that the present worth of Ethereum represents an amazing shopping for alternative for traders as it’s promoting 76% under his mannequin worth of $2815.
Eth to $5000
In an August 5 put up, Hayes stated the Fed’s pivot towards “supporting progress moderately than combating inflation” would result in an growth in amount –a state of affairs the place the Feds must print extra money to help the economic system.
On this situation, when Ethereum Merge finally occurs in September, he believes the digital asset would be capable of breach the $5000 mark as it could turn into a deflationary asset with excessive demand.
The speed at which Ether is issued per 12 months might be lowered by ~90% beneath the brand new PoS mannequin … the Ether taken out of circulation will solely improve because the community grows in reputation … 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 choice to help progress by printing extra money, Hayes thinks the merge would nonetheless be capable of push Ethereum’s worth to $3562.
In response to Hayes, the merge is predicted to drive a “triple-halving’ occasion” for Ethereum. Since Bitcoin’s (BTC) worth has at all times reacted positively to its halving, one can count on ETH’s worth to reply equally.

Nevertheless, a number of folks can be left disenchanted by the failed guarantees.

So, a merge failure will drop the value to $1,099. However since there might be extra liquidity from the Fed pivot, he expects ETH to finally 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.
