ETH/USD price analysis shows that it closed at 2663.30 after placing a high of 2663.30 and a low of 2532.25. Ethereum prices reached a new ATH on Tuesday after the Berlin upgrade led to a drop in gas fees and a surge in DeFi activity. The growing popularity in sectors such as decentralized finance (Defi) and non-fungible tokens (NFTs) has increased crypto adoption in 2021. This explosive growth that has been seen over the past few years would not have been possible without the Ethereum blockchain. This led the ETH price to break out to a new ATH above $2600 level after the successful launch of the Berlin upgrade on April 15.

The Berlin upgrade declined the average gas fees to a more manageable level, resulting in an increased trading volume in top decentralized exchanges including Uniswap and SushiSwap. As most top Defi and NFT products were currently operating on the Ethereum platform, the uptick in activity led to increased prices of ETH at a faster pace than BTC in the near term. Additionally, Opium Network, a Defi protocol, has launched a new way for users to increase returns on Ethereum via highly leveraged exposure. Meanwhile, Binance, the world’s largest crypto exchange platform by reported trading volume, announced that it would launch a NFT in June. This NFT marketplace will run on Binance Smart Chain (BSC) and Ethereum Network. It means the users of the market will view Ethereum NFTs in their Binance wallet account. This news added strength to the already rising ETH prices on Tuesday.
