Ethereum technical analysis
Meanwhile, Ethereum’s technical analysis indicators look very interesting. In particular, the sentiment summary indicator shows buying sentiment at 13. However, the oscillators are showing sell sentiment at 4, while the moving average points to a strong buy range at 12.
At the time of publication of this report, the price of Ethereum is in the range of 1,567 dollars in the transaction with a growth of more than 3% in the last 24 hours. In addition, it has seen a 21.1% growth in the past week, which is very close to the cryptocurrency community’s 4-week forecast for Ethereum price on October 31st.
Fear of censorship
However, things are not entirely good for Ethereum. Some industry experts are concerned about the network’s resistance to censorship; Because now more than 60% of Ethereum transaction blocks comply with the sanctions imposed by the United States Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC).
As a reminder, Ofek banned popular Ethereum mixer Tornado Cash in August for its role in allegedly laundering over $455 million in stolen digital currency. In addition, it blacklisted a number of Ethereum addresses associated with this protocol.
This ban led to the growing mandate of “Maximum Mined Value” or MEV relays compliant with OFEC rules, which may censor some transactions. The digital currency intelligence platform Mesari called this action a real threat to Ethereum’s neutrality and resistance to censorship in the past.
