Ethereum investing is moving on to another level and there are no signs of bearish influences in that ecosystem.DeFi has continued to show growth this year despite the bears returning to cryptocurrency markets. The concept involves locking Ethereum into smart contracts to earn interest on decentralized lending markets.

ETH USD tumbled on Friday after it hit resistance at 162.15. The slide brought the price below 151.45, which acted as the lower end of a sideways range that ''s been in place since September 24th. So, having in mind the downside exit out of that sideways path, we will adopt a bearish stance for now.If the bears are willing to stay in the driver ''s seat, then we may see extensions towards the low of May 1st, at around 138.00. The crypto could stop around there, or even rebound somewhat, but as long as it stays below the 151.45 zone, we would see decent chances for the bears to recharge and target the 138.00 zone again. If they are not willing to stop there this time around, a break lower may allow declines towards the 129.50 territory, which is the low of March 25th.
