Ether surged up to 2% to $2,029.50. It broke beyond $2,000 for the first time since May 31. The reason behind its rise was the anticipation of the completion of its blockchain software upgrade, the Merge.

On Sunday, the largest cryptocurrency surged as much as 2.1% to $25,027. This was its highest level since June 13, trading around $24,750, up for the sixth day in a row. It was fueled by US consumer-price index data that came in lower than expected.

The Fed raised rates to combat persistently rising inflation at the beginning of the year. Hence, Bitcoin, Ether, and other token prices plunged by more than 50%.

U.S. inflation statistics came in below forecasts in the last week. This should clear the way for less aggressive Fed tightening. Moreover, risk assets such as the Nasdaq have climbed, aiding advances in crypto. The Merge symbolizes a shift in the creation and transaction validation of Ether tokens. It is moving away from proof-of-work mining blocks and toward proof-of-stake. Furthermore, some investors are positioned to profit from a future fork that would retain proof-of-work Ether.
