Many observers expect that the parabolic ETH rally could be inevitable, referring to the evolving DeFi ecosystem and network fundamentals of Ethereum.

With Ethereum hitting fresh all-time highs over the past 24 hours, a number of viewers claim that Ether could easily leap into the $1,400 price range.

Ethereum’s robust fundamentals reinforce the expectation that Ether could sail past resistance in the mid-1,400s, with many pointing to Ethereum’s ever-growing DeFi ecosystem as the most likely factor to push ETH into price discovery.

On Jan. 19, Spencer Noon of crypto VC fund Variant shared 11 indicators he believes suggests that a parabolic bull-run is nigh. He pointed to the fact taht more than one million unique addresses t have interacted with DeFi over the past eight months.

Looking beyond DeFi, Noon also highlights that Ethereum is the top blockchain network by daily fees generated — beating out BTC by more than 50%; the number of daily active Ether addresses has doubled in the past 12 months to reach all-time highs of 550,000; and that nearly $20 billion worth of stablecoins were minted on Ethereum over the past year.

The thread notes that more than $25 billion is currently locked in DeFi, adding that 21 decentralized finance protocols now represent at least $100 million in total value locked each.

Despite Ethereum’s surging fundamentals, Noon notes that the number of Ether transactions valued at more than $100,000 is seven times smaller than during Jan. 2018’s highs, suggesting that “institutions still haven’t entered the game.”

On the same day, Token Terminal, an analytics platform that uses traditional financial metrics like P/E to examine crypto markets, tweeted a chart of Ethereum’s “price to sales ratio” with the caption “this time is different.”

The chart shows that Ethereum’s price relative to the fees generated by the network is reaching all-time lows — suggesting the market may be extremely undervalued. However, replies on Twitter challengede the applicability of using the metric to Ethereum, noting that Ethereum’s “sales” comprise fees that are collected by miners.
