Ethereum Could Hit $10K By Year-End, Says Analyst Signaling 'Significant Bullish Move'

Cryptocurrency analytics platform Cryptofy Hub expressed optimism in Ethereum's ETH/USD growth trajectory, forecasting a move to $10,000 by year-end.

What Happened: In a post on X, formerly Twitter, on Thursday, the platform noted the formation of a rising wedge pattern for Ethereum on a multi-year chart, with both the resistance and support levels sloping up. 

Cryptofy Hub highlighted the converging support levels, which, according to them, reflected a strong uptrend. 

Typically, most technical analysts interpret the rising wedge formation as a bearish chart pattern that indicates a potential breakout to the downside.

That said, Cryptody Hub was optimistic about Ethereum reaching as high as $10,000 by the end of the year. 

One X user questioned these projections, saying, “I don’t believe it will continue like that. It is a bear market once the top has been blown off. “2025-2026 will be brutal.” 

Why It Matters: These bullish forecasts come amid a strong wave of whale accumulation for the world's second-largest cryptocurrency. 

On Thursday, prominent analyst and trader Ali Martinez drew attention to a considerable increase in wallets holding at least 10,000 ETH. Martinez interpreted this as a change in market behavior from distribution to accumulation.

Whale transaction value also rose 7.28% in the last 24 hours, according to IntoTheBlock, lending credence to the aforementioned narrative. 

Sentiment around the asset took a 180-degree turn last week when the SEC approved the first-ever spot Ether ETFs in the U.S. The sentiment and the hype pushed the cryptocurrency near to $4,000. However, it has sharply corrected since then.

Price Action: At the time of writing, Ether was trading at $3,738.32, trading mostly flat in the last 24 hours, according to data from Benzinga Pro.
