The cryptocurrency industry is once again in a fervent mood, with the possibility of Ethereum (ETH) breaking its price record as the cryptocurrency grows too much and approaches its all-time high. Recently, Bitcoin (BTC) briefly surpassed its record high of $69,000, raising expectations of a significant advance in the market.

In a recent development, Ethereum this week reached a significant milestone by surpassing the $3,800 barrier, a feat not seen since December 2021. Ethereum’s all-time high is $4,878.26, which was recorded in November 10, 2021. The current price is 18.20% lower than ETH’s all-time peak.

At the time of publication, the price of Ethereum was quoted at US$3,985.84 with an increase of 5.0% in the last 24 hours. During this period, the cryptocurrency recorded a trading volume of US$23,676,938,418. In the last seven days, the second largest cryptocurrency on the market has seen an increase in its price of 15.9%.

Cryptocurrency analytics platform Santiment highlighted that Ethereum’s market cap recently reached $3,920 and ETH’s market price ratio to Bitcoin is up 9.5% over the past three days. β€œWhen these types of changes in price dominance occur, we often see profits quickly redistributed and whales becoming very active in ERC20-based altcoins.”

Ethereum Dencun Approaches Driving ETH Burn to New Heights

As the Ethereum community eagerly awaits the arrival of the Dencun update, a notable phenomenon has captured the attention of the cryptocurrency market. The continuous burning of ETH, driven by the implementation of the EIP-1559 update, has shown a significant increase, bringing the number of ETH burned to a new record.

Ethereum burning is not just a random event; it represents a fundamental change in the way transaction fees are handled on the network. Since the implementation of EIP-1559, the process of burning ETH with transaction fees has accelerated, surpassing a staggering 1.5 million ETH burned, which translates to over $5.6 billion at current prices.
