Three market catalysts suggest that Ethereum’s native token Ether (ETH) is well-positioned to reach $4,000 this month.

Internet users’ interest in Ethereum’s upcoming network upgrade, dubbed “the Merge,” surged substantially in the week ending April 2, Google Trends’ data shows.

Merge, also called ETH 2.0, refers to the Ethereum network’s full transition to Proof-of-Stake (PoS) from Proof-of-Work (PoW), a development that had been touted as one of the major catalysts behind Ether’s rebound from $2,500 on March 14 to over $3,500 this week.

The bullish outlook stems from Merge’s proposal to reduce Ether’s issuance rate, leading to a possible supply peak in the total number of ETH in circulation. With PoW mining, ETH’s supply has grown by 3% every year.

The spike in public interest for “Ethereum Merge” suggests there is growing buzz among crypto investors and traders as the Ethereum upgrade nears. Last month’s launch of Kiln is the final public testnet before the whole network transitions to PoS sometime this year.
