Ethereum has been experiencing a tremendous market momentum with a price increase of over 55 percent in this month. From a valuation standpoint, Ethereum has always been particularly complicated as it influenced not only by the performance of the native cryptocurrency but also all the token running on the Ethereum platform. That same characteristic makes it sometimes difficult to understand the factors influencing price movements.
The recent Ethereum bull run has had marked footprints in the blockchain behavior of the crypto-asset. An analysis of the Ethereum blockchain reveals very interesting patterns that shed some light on the recent positive momentum as well as the current state of Ethereum from a financial standpoint.

In terms of support, the recent $270 resistance is expected to turn into a buying area, as well as the trend line of the ascending channel in shorter time frames around $265.The blockchain perspective
