Ethereum (ETH) price is trading with modest gains canceling out the downward momentum from the previous five sessions. Ether, the original currency of the Ethereum blockchain, is facing volatility due to ongoing geopolitical tensions between Ukraine and Russia.
The price of Ethereum (ETH) is higher on Tuesday. Expect a reversal from current levels with a 40% increase. Momentum oscillators remain neutral to warn of aggressive bids.

Experts believed that Ethereum has been more volatile than bitcoin since 2018. The scalability issue has hit ETH hard, the reason behind the increasing popularity of layer 2 challengers like Polygon, reportedly more NFTs on its platform.
ETH Nearly Holds Critical Level
