Alternative cryptocurrency ‘ethereum’ looks to topple bitcoin


Despite a seven-fold difference in price, the market capitalization of a virtual currency called ‘ethereum’ is rapidly approaching that of bitcoin.

According to a chart presented by CoinMarketCap, bitcoin currently accounts for nearly 39 percent of the combined market capitalization for all cryptocurrencies, though that figure is down sharply from late February’s 87 percent.

At the same time, ethereum, which accounted for over 31 percent of the combined market cap of virtual currencies, saw just a five percent drop over the past four months.At the same time, ethereum, which accounted for over 31 percent of the combined market cap of virtual currencies, saw just a five percent drop over the past four months.

Bitcoin has enjoyed the largest share of the cryptocurrency market since it was first introduced in 2009, with no serious rivals in sight – up till now.

Ethereum, which has been around for less than two years, is becoming bitcoin’s biggest rival.

The currency was developed by Russian-born programmer Vitalik Buterin, who launched an open-source computing platform called ethereum based on blockchain technology.

In the event ethereum’s market value overtakes bitcoin’s, experts expect a shift in market forces called “The Flippening” to occur, after which ethereum may become the biggest, most valuable, and most important cryptocurrency.

At the same time, banking industry giants have rendered conflicting opinions on digital currencies so far.

Earlier this week, a Goldman Sachs technical expert issued a bearish forecast on bitcoin and Morgan Stanley analysts expect the massive rally for cryptocurrencies to stall until they receive some governmental acceptance.
