Crypto Industry news:
Senator Elizabeth Warren once again criticizes cryptocurrencies. This time, it is about high transaction fees, which she believes may pose a threat to less wealthy people.
However, it did not end with high fees (to which Ethereum users are the most exposed) and the senator also criticized the interruption in the operation of exchanges that occur when the market is experiencing high price volatility.
In a hearing of the Senate's Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs Committee, Senator Elizabeth Warren accused the cryptocurrency industry of failing to deliver solutions that are essential to financial integration in the US.
She argued her position, among other things, with ... declines in the prices of the most popular cryptocurrencies: Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH). According to the senator, during the recent drops in the rates of most cryptocurrencies, 400 billion dollars has disappeared from the market.
The senator added that popular exchanges did not ensure that users were guaranteed the ability to make transactions, which caused many of them to complain about problems with the operation of the platform. At the same time, according to Senator Warren, investing in DeFi projects is risky, as many of them are not registered with the SEC.
It was also hit by high fees on Ethereum, but this is what many cryptocurrency supporters will certainly agree with. As an example, Elizabeth Warren used to swap one cryptocurrency for another, which at one point required a fee of over $ 500.
Technical Market Outlook
The ETH/USD pair has broken above the supply zone located between the levels of $3,552 - $3,596 and made a new local high at the level of $3,675. The supply zone will now act as a technical support for the price, together with the level of $3,489. The next target for bulls is seen at the level of $3,706 and $3,880. The positive and strong momentum supports the short-term bullish outlook despite the overbought market conditions.

Ethereum have started the next wave up and violated the long-term target at the level of $3,550. The next long-term target for ETH is seen at the level of $4,394. Nevertheless, in order to continue the long-term up trend, the price can not break below the technical support at the level of $2,906. The level of $1,728 (61% Fibonacci retracement of the last big impulsive wave up) is still the key long-term technical support for bulls.
