Could Ethereum Surpassed Bitcoin?
It is a good question after the massive success story of Bitcoin everybody is looking for its next powerful contender. While Ethereum is young in comparison to Bitcoins. Currently, during the Market crash Bitcoin hit very hard and fell massively in comparison to Ethereum. Ethereum is six years old and its current value is over $3000 but when Bitcoin was six years old its value was only $250.Let us analyze: Bitcoin is a decentralized currency and reached new heights of success but it has no room for further modification like its bad environmental impacts, energy usage. In contrast, Ethereum has a big picture of specialized applications like Defi platform, Smart contracts & Eth2 is yet to come to solve the bad impacts on the environment.
Future of Ethereum

The big question is what will happen to the world of Cryptocurrencies as a whole. Its volatility & unpredictability has proved in the last week. Experts are saying that anything that can possibly in a crypto world like the Values of Bitcoin & Ethereum rise suddenly or it can burst like a bubble. It is advisable that invest the money which you can lose or hope for long-term profit. Ethereum may break all the records of Bitcoins but the more important thing is to see the performance of Eth 2 and the US government move on Cryptocurrencies.
