What to expect from the “Dencun” upgrade!


Recommended Posts

I think we should brace ourselves for the Ethereum ecosystem bull run as the much-hyped Dencun upgrade, initially slated for earlier, is now making its grand entrance in March 2024. Analysts are buzzing with excitement, foreseeing Ethereum (ETH) and its ecosystem projects stepping into the spotlight as the main actors of the next bullish surge. If all goes according to plan, this upgrade could unleash the full potential of the Ethereum ecosystem.
 
 
 
Just a month ago, the Total Value Locked (TVL) in most Ethereum Layer 2 (L2) protocols skyrocketed to all-time highs, with Optimism, Arbitrum, and Metis leading the charge. Following this surge came a wave of gaming projects flocking to the chain, banking on Ethereum to revolutionize gaming experiences and slash those pesky transaction fees.
 
The ETH price action is sending vibes reminiscent of Bitcoin’s pre-ETF era. As we eagerly await the potential approval of an ETH spot ETF in May, the “Decun” upgrade emerges as another game-changer. Analysts draw parallels between the impact of this upgrade on ETH and the transformative “Fire-Dancer” upgrade on SOL (Solana). In anticipation of these game-changing events, we’re witnessing a flurry of activity, with more L2 and gaming projects sprouting up on the Ethereum chain. OKX is already test-driving a promising L2 chain dubbed X1, while Bitget contemplates building a blockchain to amplify the utility of its Ethereum-based token, BGB. Not to be left behind, Binance has seamlessly integrated Optimism into its smart chain with opBNB.
 
In just one whirlwind month, a plethora of Ethereum-based projects have burst onto the scene, boasting impressive price actions upon listing—think STRK, MAVIA, NADA, ASTO, and the list goes on.
 
With ETH soaring above $3k and the charts painting a picture-perfect bull trend (even the likes of OP and ARB notching up multiple all-time highs), it’s time to ask: What are your expectations? Do you believe in the staying power of these new projects, or are they just fleeting sparks in the crypto cosmos? Strap in, folks, because the ride is just getting started!
