Cryptocurrencies Price Prediction: Bitcoin, Ethereum & Worldcoin— American Wrap 17 April


Ethereum trades around the $3,000 support following a surge in validator queue

Ethereum (ETH) continued a sideways movement on Wednesday as investors seemed to be waiting for an upward or downward price catalyst. Despite the price stagnancy, the ETH validator queue - possibly fueled by the DeFi restaking boom - rose sharply.

Worldcoin (WLD) announced in a blog post on Wednesday that it would launch a Layer 2 network known as World Chain in the summer. Based on deep integration with the Worldcoin protocol, the new blockchain aims to leverage World ID to prioritize human transactions over bots.
 
Bitcoin (BTC) price is showing weakness despite the halving event being only three days out. The dismal BTC price action comes amid elevated risk levels in the market, causing traders to flee to the more traditional assets for safety.
