Ethereum Name Service price has been treading beneath key resistance levels for about four months now. At present, while the cryptocurrency is following the broader market cues despite the rut, the protocol seems to be doing better than ever.
Ethereum Name Service on August 13 recorded one of the highest fees collected on the platform since September 11 last year, marking an 11-month high. Within 24 hours, the platform noted $235,000 in fees even while the price of the native token did not make any significant move.

ENS is a domain name service provider which maps a web3 username ending in “.eth“ to an Ethereum address, other cryptocurrency addresses, content hashes, and metadata. The naming service had observed significant demand this time last year when within a single month of August, more than 437k registrations were recorded.
Since then, the platform has been losing traction, with the month of July 2023 noting just 31k registrations. The discouraging market conditions can be attributed as one of the biggest reasons behind the drawdown in registrations. Furthermore, considered to be cosmetic, the naming service does rank high up in the list of necessary crypto services, as a result of which, in the six years since its launch, only 2.6 million registrations have been recorded.

The native token ENS is still dependent on the broader market cues to find a direction which is evident in the fact that despite August 13 recording nearly a quarter million in fees, the altcoin barely moved. In fact, considering the price indicators and other factors, the cryptocurrency seems much more vulnerable to a further decline.

Stuck under the 50, 100 and 200-day Exponential Moving Averages, the ENS price is likely to continue sliding and hit a low of $8.321 and potentially even decline to $8.026. However, if the altcoin observes bullish interest, ENS could end up at $10.476, provided it manages to breach $10.210.
