02.05-09.05 Ethereum news

Ethereum has been a scorching topic in the past few weeks. Especially after its price surpassed $3000 and made its creator Vitalik Buterin the youngest self-made crypto billionaire at the age of 27.

Last week Ethereum dominance was 15.7% of the whole crypto market, and in one week, it has reached market dominance of 19%. Ethereum dominance will probably reach 20-25% before market correction and a short-term slowdown.

At the beginning of last week, Ethereum price surpassed $3000 and it started this week by surpassing $4000, which makes investors and analysts wonder if Ethereum is going to surpass Bitcoin dominance, market cap and even price?

Bloomberg Intelligence Senior Commodity strategist Mike McGlone wrote in his latest report that bitcoin (digital gold) had crossed the Rubicon of legitimization, while Ethereum has won the adoption battle.
McGlone also thought that Ethereum might be on an upward path like bitcoin was back in 2017. If a similar price-path takes action, Ethereum might reach $19 000 in 2021.

JPMorgan, one of the most influential investment bank, expressed their belief that Ethereum is going to keep outperforming the world's number one crypto and the bank gave three reasons why Ethereum is outperforming bitcoin:

  1. More resilient liquidity: the liquidity shock seen last week originated in the derivatives market, leading to sizable liquidations, but it hit BTC harder than ETH. (1)
  2. Less reliance on derivatives markets to transfer and warehouse risk. (1)
  3. More durable underlying demand base: as a consequence of high transaction fees, a higher proportion of ETH (11%) behave as if highly liquid than bitcoin (4%) over the past month; and connected to a second reason, it may be that the underlying base of long exposure in ETH is less reliant on leverage in the form of futures and swaps than BTC.
