18 Oct 2023


Ethereum Battle with Resistance: While Ethereum has faced prolonged resistance over the past two months, “whale” investors remain confident, with the cryptocurrency trading at $1,577. Despite this struggle, optimism remains high among investors, especially the larger ones. In other corners of the crypto market, Bitcoin surges after breaching key resistance levels, and XRP anticipates a boost from a notable alliance promoting widespread adoption.


Ethereum struggles with resistance level as ‘whales’ hold steadfast.

The second-largest cryptocurrency by market capitalization, Ethereum, has been struggling for more than two months with resistance levels, but big investors, or “whales,” are showing steadfast confidence. Ethereum trading price is currently at $1,577 as of Wednesday, having only recovered from the support line at $1,533.

For the past two months, the price of Ethereum has been struggling to make significant progress. This hasn’t, however, had any negative effects on investors, who are now more optimistic than ever, particularly large investors.
