As the dust settles from China’s crackdown on cryptocurrencies, Ethereum looks poised for a rally that could send it across the $300.00 level. However, the situation remains tenuous.

Where Ethereum Goes from Here Aside from Bitcoin, no cryptocurrency is more popular and promising than Ether (the native token of the Ethereum platform). ETH prices exploded by 3,995% since the start of 2017, beating every Ethereum price forecast in the world. Yet, now that it’s time to…

Bitcoin Hard Fork 2017 Is a Reality Investors hope that Ethereum prices will escape the summer doldrums, but what about the Bitcoin hard fork in 2017? Won’t that spark a crisis of faith in cryptocurrencies, leading to more pain for Ethereum? I doubt it. Don’t get me wrong,…

People Misunderstand Blockchain On a recent episode of the Slate Money podcast, columnist Jordan Weissmann said half-jokingly, "Friends don’t let friends invest in ICOs." It was an offhand comment, but it got me thinking. Is that what people think about Ethereum initial coin offerings? What a horrible thought……

Re-Evaluating Ethereum Price Predictions for 2018 Another day, another record-breaking high for Ethereum.
