Ethereum has had a fantastic – if expected – turn-around the past few weeks, launching the second-largest cryptocurrency above $250. In the glory days of the ICO run, when transaction fees were high – and demand for Ether was also high – the ETH price sailed over $1,000. What are the odds of that happening now, or soon?
ETHEREUM: CAN ETH JOIN BITCOIN IN FOUR-FIGURE TERRITORY?
Ethereum has faced stiff competition from other smart contract platforms, notably Tronand EOS. In the “enterprise” space, there are also several competitors, including NEO, Aelf, and more.
