According to experts, the overall crypto market capitalisation has crossed $3 trillion as ether hit a new all-time high. They said that over the past five days, there has been a consistent drop in gas fees on the Ethereum network. This has propelled the altcoin’s price higher, hitting a new all-time high of $4,782. The average transaction fee has plunged over 33 percent since Tuesday. The dropping gas fees has triggered a spike in the Ethereum network’s hash rate. Hash rate is a measure of the computing power of the network. Historically, a high hash rate is correlated with a spike in Ethereum price.
