Ethereum Prices in 2017Ethereum (ETH) Prices Heading for $1,500 in 2018

This Bitcoin competitor saw exponential growth in 2017, far outpacing that of its peer. Ethereum prices returned a whopping 8,000% in gains in 2017, compared to Bitcoin’s 1,500% return. ETH prices ended the year just short of our Ethereum price prediction of $1,000, but we’re upgrading that price target to $1,500 for 2018.

Ethereum is currently the second-most valuable cryptocurrency in the world. At the pace that it is growing, we won’t be surprised if it eventually overtakes Bitcoin.

The reason why investors are valuing it so highly is that Ethereum promises to be more than just a mode of payments. Ethereum is a decentralized platform that enables us to run applications and create smart contracts on the blockchain. Its network is fueled by its cryptocurrency—Ether.

Ethereum’s moat is its better technology. Ethereum founder Vitalik Buterin tweaked Bitcoin’s blockchain technology to create a much cheaper and much faster version.

We are bullish on Ethereum for two reasons. Firstly, Buterin has recently shared his roadmap for Ethereum 2.0—the next iteration of Ethereum’s technology, which will further add to its scale and speed.

Secondly, Ethereum’s unique feature of decentralized smart contracts is finding real-world applications. Businesses are trying out this concept for various applications such as corralling medical records, in electoral voting, in financial software, and more.

Our price forecast for 2018 is bullish as we watch this cryptocurrency make a steady northward advance. Follow this space for daily Ethereum news updates and our Ethereum price prediction and analysis.

It’s official: the Ethereum update is now live. Developers have successfully implemented the Ethereum improvement protocols (EIPs) known collectively as Byzantium. Which is a wonky piece of Ethereum news, to be sure, but one with an incredibly important investment takeaway: Byzantium will help Ethereum scale more successfully. Scaling…

Ethereum prices are on a tear today, rising more than 12% on a broad-based rally in cryptocurrencies. The Ethereum to USD exchange rate is currently at around $341.47. What’s truly remarkable is that the speed of Ethereum’s recovery is stunning. ETH prices were trading at $206.00 only last…

For those who watch the cryptocurrency market closely, the $400.00 price level is to Ethereum what the $5,000 level is to Bitcoin. It is a crucial milestone that can bolster support for the long-term Ethereum price forecast. ETH is poised to reach that level after the Byzantium upgrade…

It seems like a lifetime ago when Ethereum founder Vitalik Buterin was in Moscow, wining and dining the Russian elite. He sat on stage next to President Vladimir Putin and forged relationships with government agencies. All seemed well. That is, until yesterday. On Tuesday, Putin warned against the…

The Ethereum to USD exchange rate slipped ever so slightly on Monday, falling 0.46% to $303.14. However, the fall against Bitcoin was of a different magnitude. The Ethereum to Bitcoin rate fell 5.47% to 0.06249410 BTC. Why was there such a stark discrepancy? At first blush, one would…

For what seems like the hundredth time in the last month, ETH prices crossed back above $300.00. The random flips between bullish and bearish behavior have stalled the Ethereum price prediction around this level. It’s tempting to think that yesterday’s uptick came after investors earnestly appraised recent bits of…

Initial coin offerings (ICOs) are shining brightly at the moment, but that may not be helping the Ethereum price forecast. For one thing, ICO regulations are extremely murky and can change at the drop of a hat. But more than that, ICOs are possibly blinding investors from other, more…

As ETH prices oscillated between $290.00 and $306.00 last week, investors seemed immune to some of the more subtle Ethereum news that emerged. If they had paid attention, it seems likely that ETH would have accelerated to our short-term Ethereum price forecast of $400.00. For instance, a senior…

Clarity is the best form of Ethereum news we can hope for these days. Clarity on initial coin offerings (ICOs), cryptocurrency trading, and smart contracts. We need regulators to provide clear regulations on these issues or else the Ethereum price forecast is going nowhere. However, there’s good news…

Like its neighbor across the Yellow Sea, South Korea is banning a blockchain-based funding method known as "initial coin offering," or ICO. Since the vast majority of ICOs take place on Ethereum, this qualifies as pretty terrible Ethereum news. ETH prices may fall dramatically in response. After all,…

Ethereum has green ink across its “1h,” “24h,” and “7d” categories on the CoinMarketCap website, something that we haven’t seen in quite some time. What a beautiful sight to see. The Ethereum to USD exchange rate is up 1.82% based on Monday’s trading activity, reaching $292.48. At the same…

Despite a mix of bullish and bearish Ethereum news, investors recanted some of their earlier pessimism on ETH, driving prices up 2.57% against the U.S. dollar. The Ethereum to USD exchange rate now sits at around $288.09. By cryptocurrency standards, it is only one trading session away from…

Narrow spreads, low volatility, and relative calm. If someone asked you to name an asset class with those qualities, would your answer be cryptocurrencies? Absolutely not! Cryptocurrencies like Ethereum are rocket rides to the moon, not scooter rides on Venice Beach. They are dangerous, thrilling, and life-altering. Yet…

On Tuesday, investors ignored bullish Ethereum news once again. Why? Because, like an angsty teenager, they are angry with the world. “How could China ban cryptocurrency exchanges? It’s not fair!” It isn’t. But that doesn’t erase any of Ethereum’s constructive developments. For example, Ethereum started testing the long-awaited…
