Ether is currently showcasing 30-day gains of over 110%

After hitting an all-time high of $1,450 a few days ago, the second-largest cryptocurrency by total market cap experienced some pullback to settle down around the $1,370 range.

One of the most notable aspects of ETHs latest run is that it has exhibited 30-day gains of nearly 115% as compared with Bitcoin's gains of around 23% over the same time period.

As a result, it now seems as though Ether is fast moving out of Bitcoin's shadows and is starting to exhibit independent market movements that may have a direct effect on the value of other decently capped altcoins available in the market today.

Providing his thoughts on Ether's growing dominance, Chandler Song, co-founder of Ankr, a Web3.0 platform as well as Defi solution for eth2.0, told Finder that while Bitcoin will remain the clear alpha of the crypto space, Ether's rise as an independent crypto asset will inevitability continue to garner momentum.

Ethereum's rally is highly value-driven rather than speculation based

It is worth recalling that during the 2019 bear cycle, ETH was one of the worst-hit large-cap cryptocurrencies, falling by a whopping 85% at one point in relation to BTC (even dropping to the $80 mark), thus leading to fears that the project may have finally hit a dead end. That being said, the ongoing surge seems to largely be the result of a dedicated Ethereum community spending 3 long years building the project's ecosystem even in the face of continuous ups and downs.

In this regard, the research team at Santiment, a market intelligence platform for cryptocurrencies, has suggested that Ethereum's recent development activity has showcased a direct correlation with its value, thus suggesting that the aforementioned de-coupling hype is rooted in hard facts and not just wishful thinking. On the subject, Rafael Cosman CEO & Co-Founder of TrustToken told finder:

Ethereum Forecast and ETH/USD Analysis January 28, 2021

An additional signal in favor of raising the ETH/USD quotes will be a test of the trend line on the relative strength index (RSI). The second signal will be a rebound from the lower border of the ascending channel. Cancellation of the option for the growth of the cryptocurrency will be a fall and a breakdown of the level of 935.05. This will indicate a breakdown of the support area and a continued fall in ETH/USD quotes below the level of 715.05. With the breakdown of the resistance area and closing of quotations above the level of 1595.00, we should expect confirmation of the development of the rise in Ethereum.
