A major catalyst for the surge in ETH price is its steep decline in mid-2019. ETH recorded a 93% drop from its highest price which gave rise to oversold conditions. Thus, when the price recovered above $190, it acted as a resistance level and led to ETH establishing a monthly high.

Sound Network Strength and Hash Rate

Ethereum hash rate has also made significant gains and presently sits at  200 TH/s – highest it has been in 2019. While the transactions are much below the 2018 peak, the network still looks progressive. It is likely that the metrics will note positive changes when ETH 2.0 and the new consensus model is rolled out in 2020.
