What other statements have been made? Experts noted that Ethereum’s successful transition from the Proof of Work (PoW) consensus algorithm to Proof of Stake (PoS) will have a positive impact on sentiment in the cryptocurrency market. The Merge upgrade is expected to be released in September, with more precise dates to be known following the results of the Goerli testnet merger on August 11.

Another reason for the strengthening of the crypto market analysts called the limited spread of damage from the crash of the Terra blockchain ecosystem as a result of the collapse of the rates of its algorithmic stablecoin UST and the LUNA token.

As of August 9, the total capitalization of the cryptocurrency market is $1,17 trillion, adding 4,46% over the week. The largest cryptocurrencies, BTC and ETH, are trading at $23 415 and $1732, having increased in price by 3,05% and 10,06%, respectively, in seven days, according to Binance.

At the end of July, JPMorgan recorded an increase in demand for cryptocurrencies from retail investors. According to experts, the active phase of deleveraging in the digital asset industry is also over.
