Ethereum Mainnet Tenth ‘Shadow Fork’ Goes Live 

Ethereum is moving step by step closer to the much-awaited PoS Merger scheduled in September this year. In a recent update. While a final testnet merge, Goerli, before the Ethereum Mainnet merge may happen during the first fortnight of August 2022.

The ETH platform is undergoing a series of tests or forks ahead of the merge by copying the data from the mainnet and running a test on a testnet. This fork carries huge importance as the outcome may be used in the upcoming Goerli merge.  

ETH’s tenth Shadow Fork goes live, 26 hours earlier than expected without any significant glitches. A huge surge in the hash rate or the computational power has been witnessed that sped up the process. 

Ethereum Price Analysis Today 

The ETH price reacted positively as the shadow fork went live. The asset broke above the crucial resistance just below $1600, where it faced constant rejections previously. However, with the announcement, ETH’s price gained huge bullish momentum and surged more than 23% in the past couple of days.

On the other hand, the hash rate is also on a constant rise for the past couple of days, amid the shadow fork that signifies the intensified activity in recent times. Therefore, the volatility is expected to be on the rise while the price may oscillate with wide margins, regardless of the direction until the day’s close.
