The reasons for this breakthrough
ETH evolves in a context of bull run for altcoins: the Binance Coin (BNB) had an ATH two days ago, and Uniswap’s UNI also broke their record overnight. This breakthrough above the symbolic threshold of 3,000 dollars, however, comes two days after the launch of Steklo, the testnet of version 2.0 of Ethereum. Currently, more than 4 million ETH has been sent on the deposit contract, which shows the enthusiasm for the new version of the network.
How far could ETH go? Most commentators are positive. The analysis firm Fundstrat estimated at the end of last week that the second largest cryptocurrency could soon exceed 10,000 dollars. She explained as follows:
” We think […] that attention is shifting from Bitcoin to Ethereum, as well as other segments like DeFi and Web3 apps. “
It remains to be seen whether ETH will continue to gradually reduce the gap between it and BTC.
