Ethereum (CCC:ETH-USD) is once again notching new records after an extended period of bearishness in cryptocurrencies that saw both ETH-USD and other peers fall back from early April highs. Ethereum is currently trading around $2,650.

The biggest support for ether right now comes from significantly lower GAS fees, which have dropped to a three-month low. That reduction in fees appears tied to a shift in the bots traders use to close transactions, and is not directly attributable to the GAS fee changes associated with the Berlin hard fork network update.

Eagle-eyed readers might note that two weeks ago, InvestorPlace reported on a similar decline in GAS fees likewise spurred by changes to the bots used for closing transactions prior to the Berlin hard fork two weeks ago.

More broadly, institutions and individuals alike are expressing their support for the cryptocurrency, whether it’s whales buying ETH-USD on the dip or the listing of Ethereum ETFs on Canadian exchanges.

Additionally, the European Investment Bank plans to sell 100 million euro in bonds on the Ethereum blockchain.
