After a money-dissolving bout of market shakedown and existential dread, crypto investors are back to focusing on the mood of the US stock market as a gauge of whether the worst might be over.

Stocks are mostly up over the last few weeks. While also Bitcoin has added 15% over the past month, and so have the altcoin markets.

Here are the top five altcoins to watch over this week:

ETHEREUM (ETH)

While on the 11th of August, Ethereum is set for a Goerli merge.

The Ethereum Foundation’s blog said, “After years of work to bring proof-of-stake to Ethereum, we are now well into the final testing stage: testnet deployments!”.

After a series of forks, devnet, and merges on Ethereum, Sepolia testnet underwent a transition Proof-of-Stake (POS).

For the matter, Sepolia is a proof-of-work (PoW) testnet where dApp developers can test their applications. What differentiates Sepolia from other Ethereum testnets is that most of its PoW validators are public validators.

This Goerli merge is the last testnet remaining to get the transition to Proof-of-Stake.

ETH is currently changing hands at $1,770.

After a roughly 75% rise in three weeks, ETH is set to march even higher as it proceeds into a vital supply zone between $1,700 and $2,000.

Furthermore, the only crucial psychological level remains $2000 for ETH to rise to heights again.
