The debate about whether Ethereum is a worthwhile investment or whether the Ethereum price is going down the rabbit hole in the future is still very relevant today. These points of view continue to make the basis of several important Ethereum news making the headlines recently.
What actually does the future hold for Ethereum? Will Ethereum price rise or will it fall to nothing? What Ethereum News can we expect in the future as an indication of great prowess and developments?
ETH 1.0, Decentralized Finance (DeFi) And ETH 2.0
Ethereum still takes the credit of the blockchain which brought about the emergence of smart contracts. This development, however, allowed several formidable projects to run on the Ethereum blockchain and was forming the basis of incredible price growth.
The issue of scalability, however, emerged as a major stumbling block but was immediately shun when the Ethereum development announced plans of developing a scalable version now popularly known an Ethereum 2.0
Nonetheless, the great developments on the Ethereum blockchain appeared not to matter much since Ether dropped drastically in February. And till now, it appears that the top cryptocurrency still struggles to keep its head above waters. This, however, begs the question “Is Ethereum A Worthwhile Investment”?
Many crypto influencers have contrasting opinions:
According to Blockfyre, Ethereum prices remain bullish in the long term. The crypto research firm believes that while Eth price remains relatively stagnant since the end of 2018, high development activity and several on-chain metrics suggest that the price could soon go higher.
In a recent thread of tweets, Blockfyre maintained that Ethereum progress and several promising indicators are very bullish for ethereum. The firm affirmed this while making reference to gas fees and increasing investment holding period and growing Eth balances held by miners, all of which are bullish for Ethereum price altogether.
On the affirmative, Ethereum bull, Ryan Sean Adams; Founder of a crypto investment company, Mythos Capital, called Eth ” doubly undervalued“. He argues that Ethereum’s price would initially catch up with the actual usage of the Ethereum network, thereafter, commensurate the ongoing developments as a store of value.
On the contrary, Dovey Wan, Primitive Ventures partner called Ethereum a “flawed logic“. She claimed that the increased usage of the Ethereum network is largely a result of Ponzi/casino games which actually utilize stablecoins in their activities in the stead of Eth.
Dovey however finalized her arguments that only actual demand for Ethereum can drive its price up while contradicting Blockfyre research.
Generally speaking, the successful emergence and acceptance of Ethereum 2.0 largely depends on the success of its ancestor, the 1.0 version.
