The Crypto Market is About to Bottom (Ethereum Usage Crashing!)

Hey welcome back everybody to altcoin daily my name's austin in today's video i want to share with you the latest data involving bitcoin the latest data involving ethereum as well as a lower cap altcoin news that you should know as an investor so if you're interested in making money with cryptocurrency click subscribe right now we drop a video.

Every single day demystifying this crypto currency market let's jump in starting with where we are with bitcoin us inflation has just risen to 7.9 in february a fresh four decade high another way to say this would be the consumer price index i.e the prices of consumer goods on the market how much they cost rose 7.9 percent over the last.

12 months the fastest since 1982 the u.s labor department's bureau of labor statistics reported thursday and keep in mind that these are just the quote unquote official numbers they're not actually telling us how much inflation actually is but you can look you can see a used car prices food prices gas prices that's the true consumer price increases.

For the average person so if you hold bitcoin what does this mean for you well bitcoin the largest crypto by market cap held steady at 39 300 five minutes after the report was released so the bitcoin price remained unaffected but of course we know as bitcoin holders the true meaning of something like this is so much more.

Breaking bitcoin's inflation rate currently sitting at 1.7 percent continues to follow its pre-programmed fully predictable downwards trajectory so bitcoin is completely trustless it's transparent it's predictable it's built into the code and while we know that the last bitcoin won't be mined for over a hundred years there's only 21 million.

Bitcoin every four years roughly the inflation rate gets cut in half with the having a trustless transparent monetary policy as opposed to the fed federal reserve there's nothing more manipulated we don't know how the monetary policy will change month to month year to year totally at a centralized company's whim not even elected those individuals but.

That is why we have bitcoin to quote unquote opt out like it support it get this information out there but that brings me to my next question why is the bitcoin price still consolidating why is the crypto market seemingly still trying to find a bottom.

Well let's look at some of the recent data this is local bitcoins meaning a peer-to-peer exchange local bitcoin's btc trading volume in ukraine and russia compared to the world so far not seeing any blips of volume since the outbreak of the war so let's zoom in on this data.

On the top is is worldwide then ukraine then russia and this is a long time span we can see around here is 2015 this is 2017 this is actually 2019 and where we are today in 2022 trading investing in these european regions and just everywhere in the world has declined at least on the local level the peer to peer somebody.

Comments as a ukrainian i can't use local bitcoins it was banned before the war somebody else says many overstate the russian ukraine trading volumes going on thank you for this and this is a very interesting statistics statistic data taken from coindance posted by analyst willie wu.

Give me your thoughts on this down below my personal thoughts are during a time of war like when your country is being invaded or doing the invading whatever that's not the time you you think about hey i gotta buy bitcoin right now it's the bigger implication of the russian citizens being cut off from mastercard and visa and the traditional swift.

Payments network system and of course the bank runs in the ukraine by the ukrainian people trying to get their own money that makes me want something like bitcoin in the long term something not controlled by any single government in the long term of course in the short term so much uncertainty anything can happen.

But that brings us to ethereum what about ethereum and i'm going to keep it real with you like always there is bullish news fundamental long-term bullish news as well as short-term bearish news i will share with you both ethereum gas fees have now dropped to their lowest levels since august 2021 so.

That means less people are using ethereum's block space there's less usage on the network and fees are going down according to the data sourced from coinmetrics shared by cryptorank platform the seven day moving average cost of an ethereum transaction as of march 9th totaled just 11.14 cents placing it back amongst the levels.

Recorded mid last year before it surged dramatically to as high as 55 at the tail end of 2021. so let's just look at the actual chart this is us in march of 2022 back to the levels we saw not since august of 2021. of course back then we are trending up now unfortunately we're trending down now the trend is usually your friend as.

They say but the bigger question is why why are we seeing less usage well it was the booming growth of ethereum's non-fungible token nfts as well as decentralized finance sectors that caused all that huge usage last year and lower congestion and lower fees appear correlated with waning speculation or interest in nfts and d5.

During the start of this year compared to last year so it was that huge profile pick nft boom that caused that incredible need for blocks placed with ethereum and obviously that has waned now what does this mean for you as an ethereum holder well to me this says we're trying to find a bottom with.

Ethereum usage and maybe we found it maybe we're about to head back up but either way if this is indeed the bottom or if we're about to reach it we will first see these points of consolidation like we've seen so many times before after that we should look for increasing.

Higher lows higher lows which may lead to higher highs instead of lower lows and lower lows as we're seeing now again this is all short term every network has times of lows and highs all part of the natural progression but short term this is where we stand well how about long term why am i why am i still buying the dips why am i still.

Bullish long term while the eth 2.0 staking contract now holds over 10 million ethereum huge green flag huge fundamental indicator on the underlying strength of the community and where this network is headed long term next up let's talk about altcoins which projects are currently seeing growth.
