How will Ethereum course this year? – This question is probably many of the investors under the nails. What can we expect in 2020 the ETH price in view of the upcoming Ethereum 2.0 Upgrades, the transition to Proof-of-Stake, and thus Staking. This is exactly the question we devote ourselves in this article and take a look to the views of some analysts and traders.
Ethereum course prior to the Breakout? – Bullish Indicators
The Ethereum course has already been able to outperform since the beginning of the year, most of the Altcoins and Bitcoin itself. With a Year-to-Date growth of around 82% ETH is clearly in front of BTC, XRP, LTC, BNB, EOS, or TRX. Only a handful of Altcoins such as LINK or XTZ performed better.
So far in the past. The question of the future, however, is probably more exciting. And, as so often, there is here in the chart analysis different views. With the following example I want to show mainly that these views can change from day to day, and no one can say with 100% accuracy, the development of courses in advance.
The Analyst said RookyXBT just a few days ago that Ethereum move, in his opinion, on a more interesting level. Various indicators such as the Relative Strength Index (RSI) voted him positively. The cops so be ready at any time – this was his statement from the 23.02.

He signed a potential gradient that could push the Ethereum course in the direction of the 300 or 320 USD brand. Aayush Jindal, in turn, also Analyst, support this Thesis. Jindal called the mark of 280 Dollar as the key resistance. If the Ethereum price could this crack, however, there is hardly any resistance up to the Level of 300 USD.
The fast pace of chart analysis – A Flag in the Wind?
After the entire market suffered in the last two days, however, significant setbacks, the picture looks the same otherwise. And so it was now, just 2 days after the bullish forecasts – that it is not looking for the Ethereum rate is currently well:

The message behind it is as follows: those Who want to sleep peacefully, and not on a daily basis with courses to deal, is to look at the Foundation of a crypto-currency. If a concrete Problem is solved, the fundamental data and the underlying Team is capable of, this will in the medium to long term, in the course reflect. And one of these fundamental aspects is in the case of Ethereum, is, precisely, the switch to Ethereum 2.0.

The most important Facts for the upcoming Upgrade
Therefore, in order to assess how much of the potential influence of the upcoming Upgrade to the course and a price of ETH, we summarize once again the most important information:
Probably the biggest change is the Change in the consensus mechanism of the Proof-of-Work (PoW) for less energy-intensive Proof-of-Stake (PoS) mechanism. Since its inception, the Ethereum network uses a PoW consensus mechanism for the verification of transactions. In the context of PoW the classic principle of the hash rate and the need for miners is so. These previously existent PoW Blockchain is the Main Chain – it is also referred to as the Anchor Layer.
The following graphic illustrates this structure better and clearer:
With Ethereum 2.0, new and emerging Blockchain, which is based on a Proof-of-Stake algorithm, is referred to as the Beacon Chain. It is the beginning and also at the same time ‘the heart’ of Ethereum 2.0. All in the context of the PoS tasks (for example, the management of the validators) are taken from the Beacon Chain.
32 ETH as the minimum sentence for Staking on the Beacon Chain
The conversion of the previously existent Main Chain on the Beacon Chain is done through the so-called Deposit Contract. Simply put, can enter the users of Ethereum on the Contract, the Ethereum 2.0 network. In this ‘elite’ Club, however, must be able to produce a Validator for at least 32 ETH.
How exactly the conversion works, we have already explained Recently in the Following article: click me.
In this linked article we show the first Screenshots of the just-mentioned Deposit Contracts. A first Version of the graphical interface, which explains this process in detail and accompanied, already exists and is to be seen in the article. It is expected that the final Version will be presented at the Ethereum Community Conference (03.03 – 05.03) in Paris. According to the current schedule, it should be as of April this year, to be part of the Beacon Chain.
Ethereum 2.0 as a catalyst for the ETH price
We can thus conclude: The Ethereum course was able to outperform this year, with the majority of Altcoins and BTC itself. While a few days ago many chart analysts were still extremely bullish about the short-term development of the ETH price, has turned the recent declines in the sheet. A concrete statement as to the course of the next few weeks would be simply speculative. However, it is clear that the expectations of Ethereum 2.0 is high. The associated load, however, could lead as well – if Ethereum so it would not create, in due time and in a solid manner, the Upgrades and Changes to the Protocol, this is a negative assessment of the Ethereum course. On the other hand, a successful transition to Ethereum 2.0 can serve as a catalyst and Boost for the ETH price. Those who trust in the project as well as developers, could perceive at the current time a good buying opportunity.
