Eth to $5000
In an August 5 put up, Hayes mentioned the Fed’s pivot towards “supporting development relatively than preventing inflation” would result in an enlargement in amount –a state of affairs the place the Feds must print extra money to assist the economic system.
On this situation, when Ethereum Merge ultimately occurs in September, he believes the digital asset would be capable of breach the $5000 mark as it might turn out to be a deflationary asset with excessive demand.
The speed at which Ether is issued per 12 months can be diminished by ~90% beneath the brand new PoS mannequin … the Ether taken out of circulation will solely improve because the community grows in reputation … all of those components collectively ought to nonetheless drive the worth of Ether up exponentially.
No Fed pivot + profitable Ethereum merge
In a state of affairs the place the Feds backtrack on its resolution to assist development by printing extra money, Hayes thinks the merge would nonetheless be capable of push Ethereum’s value to $3562.
In response to Hayes, the merge is predicted to drive a “triple-halving’ occasion” for Ethereum. Since Bitcoin’s (BTC) value has all the time reacted positively to its halving, one can anticipate ETH’s value to reply equally.

So, a merge failure will drop the worth to $1,099. However since there can be extra liquidity from the Fed pivot, he expects ETH to ultimately rise because it did between March 2020 and 2021 when “the Fed expands the cash provide as soon as extra.”
In the meantime, in a situation with no Fed pivot and Ethereum Merge fails, Hayes predicted that ETH would seemingly return to its July 17 low of $1,081.
