Ethereum Merge Testing Complete
It was announced yesterday that the final testing stages for the Ethereum Merge had been complete and were labelled a success. This comes as the price of Ethereum (ETH) has been skyrocketing amidst the eagerly anticipated launch of the switch to POS (Proof-Of-Stake) from POW (Proof-Of-Work).
However, although the testing has been successful and the merge has been taken well by most of the community, outside of the ETH miners, there is still a great amount of speculation about what will become of Ethereum, particularly in the short run.
How The Market Is Responding
The market’s response to this has been intriguing and one where many institutions are hedging their bets. While there has been an overwhelming influx of investment within the spot market for ETH, the futures market is riddled with shorts in the anticipation that the uncertainty of the merge will cause volatility, and if a turbulent merger occurs then many may exit their positions in the short run.
While investing in the futures market is inherently risky, opening up long positions in the spot market but short positions in the futures market opens the possibility of price manipulation. For example, if some of the largest hedge funds have long positions on ETH but are short in the futures market it is beneficial for them all to dump the stock in one go to try and shock the market and tank the price.
This will earn the institutions a profit on their investment in the spot market and then a realisation of their future short prediction. For this to happen certain dominos need to fall into place, but if many institutions are employing the same tactic and dump the price across a similar time frame it could cause the price of ETH to fall dramatically.
Nevertheless, a strong and seamless merger could debunk the potential thesis or other hedge funds betting long within the futures market. Either way, the long-term potential for Ethereum looks strong and many expect it to continually increase across the next few years.
