A worth to gross sales ratio (P/S) is normally calculated by taking an organization’s market capitalization and dividing it by income from gross sales. On this case, taking Ethereum’s $184 billion market cap dividing it by the entire income derived from transaction charges supplies an identical metric. The decrease the P/S ratio, the extra engaging the funding (though there’s debate as to how relevant it’s to decentralized digital belongings.)
In response to the Grayscale report, Ethereum’s P/S ratio at the beginning of 2021 was the bottom it has been for over three years at round 0.02.
Whereas Ethereum just isn’t an organization, and transaction charges will not be technically sal income, institutional-grade funding autos corresponding to Grayscale typically use conventional strategies to assist worth belongings. The report mentioned:
“A decrease ratio signifies that the community is producing excessive income relative to Ether’s historic market capitalization, and thus could also be undervalued.”
Given the big effort going into decreasing ETH charges with Eth2, layer-two scaling and the Ethereum Enchancment Proposal EIP-1559, this income can also be removed from assured into the long run.
Nonetheless, excessive transaction charges are indicative of excessive demand on the community, which is sweet information for miners and long run holders (if not for these wanting to make use of it each day.)
In response to BitInfoCharts, the typical Ethereum transaction charge has skyrocketed to an all-time excessive of round $23. This makes utilizing the community completely unviable for smaller transactions which eliminates numerous DeFi exercise for the typical dealer or investor.
Grayscale and Ethereum advocates, then again, see the constructive features:
“We will observe from the information that the value of Ether tends to maneuver with underlying exercise on the community […] a number of metrics are reaching new highs, together with lively addresses, hashrate, and community charges – a constructive signal for buyers.”
Grayscale additionally instructed that the gas-lowering EIP-1559 might create a constructive suggestions loop which is extraordinarily bullish for ETH costs.
