Today, we will be providing our readers with Ethereum price levels to watch in October 2017 based on charts. Readers and investors need to keep in mind that we might see some sharp price movements this month as there are many events planned that might impact the Cryptocurrency market in general in addition to some that are specific to Ethereum.
Ethereum related Events Planned for October 2017
These are the events planned for this month that might provide positive catalysts, concerns or guidance for the Crypto community.
The Byzantium hard fork is scheduled at block number 4,370,000. Ethereum should reach Block 4,370,000 on October the 17th. As a reminder, this fork is phase one of the Metropolis Ethereum Upgrade. This hard fork should enhance Ethereum’s anonymity among other enhancements.
Ethereum Raiden Network ICO launch
Planned to launch in October but no date was set yet. The team commited to annoucing the date at least a week prior to the auction.
Planned for November with no date provided so far. We are including this one as the effect might kick-in way before the scheduled date which might be around November the 15th. For how important this event is, the community is unusually quiet before the deployment. Even Bitcoin’s price is rather steady.
Sibos and Ripple Annual Conferences
Sibos (SWIFT) and Ripple annual conferences are being held in Toronto and on the same dates: From the 16th to the 18th of October. Interesting how both are happening on the exact same date knowing that both SWIFT and Ripple are natural competitors for cross-border payments, a market dominated today by SWIFT.
Ethereum Devcon 3 Conference
Ethereum’s Devcon3 is to be held from November 1st to November 4th. We are including this one in October’s events as for sure there will be talk and possible price movements in Ethereum’s price in anticipation of the event. We will be providing a coverage on what to expect from the Devcon conference in Ethereumprice.today very soon.
