Hayes: Eth to $5000
In an August 5 put up, Hayes stated the Fed’s pivot towards “supporting progress somewhat than preventing inflation” would result in an enlargement in amount –a scenario the place the Feds must print extra money to assist the economic system.
On this situation, when Ethereum Merge finally occurs in September, he believes the digital asset would have the ability to breach the $5000 mark as it could change into a deflationary asset with excessive demand.
“The speed at which Ether is issued per 12 months will probably be lowered by ~90% beneath the brand new PoS mannequin … the Ether taken out of circulation will solely enhance because the community grows in recognition … all of those elements collectively ought to nonetheless drive the value of Ether up exponentially.”
No Fed pivot + profitable Ethereum merge
In a scenario the place the Feds backtrack on its choice to assist progress by printing extra money, Hayes thinks the merge would nonetheless have the ability to push Ethereum’s value to $3562.
Based on Hayes, the merge is predicted to drive a “triple-halving’ occasion” for Ethereum. Since Bitcoin’s (BTC) value has all the time reacted positively to its halving, one can count on ETH’s value to reply equally.
Hayes continued that if the Ethereum merge fails or is suspended and the Fed pivots its insurance policies, there wouldn’t be any adversarial impact on the asset value as it could nonetheless have the ability to preserve its present degree of $1600.
Nonetheless, a number of individuals could be left disenchanted by the failed guarantees.

So, a merge failure will drop the value to $1,099. However since there will probably be extra liquidity from the Fed pivot, he expects ETH to finally rise because it did between March 2020 and 2021 when “the Fed expands the cash provide as soon as extra.”
In the meantime, in a situation with no Fed pivot and Ethereum Merge fails, Hayes predicted that ETH would probably return to its July 17 low of $1,081.
