Interestingly, the ETH price rally comes just on the day when the Ethereum blockchain is all set to undergo the Berlin upgrade ahead today on Wednesday, April 14. Recently, there have been a few concerns about the Ethereum network fees. However, investors have managed to hold strong their supplies with further accumulation.

As CoinGape reported, the concerns of ETH gas fee have eased a little bit with the gas fee dropping to a five-week low to an average of $11.08 per transaction. Although the Berlin upgrade won’t have much impact in the short term, it will open the doors for the London upgrade ahead of this summer.

The London upgrade plans to alleviate the ETH gas fee concerns for its users by burning some of the gas fees. However, this has been strongly objected by the ETH miner community.
