It’s been revealed that Ethereum’s on-chain metrics look weak despite its recent bullish price action.

Ethereum hits new yearly highs
Ethereum was in the spotlight after the price of the coin broke out of the two months of stagnation.
“Upon the breakout point, the smart contracts giant shot up by more than 40% smashing through mid-February’s peak. The bullish momentum behind Ether was significant enough to push its price up to a new yearly high of $335,” the same online publication notes.
It’s been also revealed that the number of ETH-related mentions on different social media networks also went to the moon.
The online publication mentions Santiment’s Social Volumen index which registered over 3,700 new mentions recently – it’s been seen the highest social engagement activity recorded since March’s market meltdown.
Back then, Bitcoin traded below $4,000, but the crypto market recovered extremely quickly.
