Ming Chan – Ethereum, Executive Director
Ethereum’s rapidly growing popularity has become the most talked about topic in cryptocurrency ecosystem. It particularly came under spotlight when it crossed the $1 billion mark in March this year, making several cryptocurrency exchanges to announce their support for ether trading.
The market cap of Ethereum’s has once again surpassed the $1 billion mark as ether price recently found upward momentum and currently trades at $14.45 levels. Finance Magnates attributes this to the success of the DAO crowdfunding drive.
Speaking with EconoTimes, Aurélien Menant, CEO of Gatecoin, said that the surge seen earlier in Ethereum’s market cap was partially due to some concerns about the future of bitcoin, which have been recently addressed following the announcement of the upcoming SegWit and Lightning network upgrades that will improve the scalability of bitcoin. He attributed the subsequent drop in the market cap to a correction to an “overly excited market”.
If you consider that the market even grew anywhere near 1 billion in less than a year since it was released that is very impressive. We are still very bullish about Ethereum and believe ether’s value will increase in the long term, Menant added. Source.
