It’s five days since the London hardfork upgrade went live last Thursday, August 5. Since then the ETH price has been showing strength and has recently made a move to $3,200 levels. As of press time, ETH is trading 5.03% up at a price of $3110 with a market cap of $363 billion.

Post the EIP-1559 implementation, the amount of token burning also seems to be going strong. The latest data from Etherchain shows that the amount of ETH burned has exceeded 20,000 amounting to a massive $60 million USD.

The burnt rate in the last 24 hours has remained at 3 ETH/minute while the issuance rate remains at 6.7ETH/min. The base fee has been staying at 30.7 Gwei.

The EIP-1559 implementation has introduced a base fee structure thereby making the Ethereum blockchain network deflationary. Besides, the ETH burning mechanism further reduces the supply of Ethereum on the exchanges. This creates a bullish momentum ahead for Ethereum.

The data from Santiment further shows that the London hardfork has helped to revive a bullish bias among retail investors. The report notes:

Ethereum’s social data has gone haywire in the past 72 hours, signaling market-wide euphoria and increased confidence in the coin’s future performance. And yet, several concerning on-chain markers continue to linger, as the coin hovers around the $3k mark to end the week.

The Ethereum price has reached a three-month high while dip buyers have been enjoying the recent price surge. A number of analysts have been bullish about Ethereum’s price going ahead. Some expect ETH to touch $8000 by the end of 2021.
