Notorious Bitcoin investor Roger Ver is very optimistic regarding Ethereum’s future, believing that the coin has the potential to get even big than Bitcoin in the future.
According to a report from News BTC, Mr. Ver is not convinced that Bitcoin will remain the biggest cryptocurrency in the world, in terms of market cap. Recently, in an interview, he talked about his confidence in Ethereum’s potential.
Big things coming from Ethereum!
Recently, ETH went through an important price surge, so it’s obvious that things can only get better from now on. Besides this, the coin is expected to innovate even more, not to mention the much-needed network improvements scheduled for the near future.
Roger Ver claims that Ethereum needs to double its price one more time and the road to the first position will be all clear. Of course, this will happen is Bitcoin’s price doesn’t increase at all, which is very hard to become a plausible scenario.
Over the past months, BTC and ETH were in a constant duel, but until now, Bitcoin still managed to maintain its position as a leader. But Ether did manage to surpass Bitcoin in a few very important metrics!
Specifically, it’s cheaper to use most of the time, not to mention its speed when it comes to confirmations. Still, these can change in a few months, thanks to improved SegWit adoption and the Lightning network launch, expected to happen in a few months. Nevertheless, until that moment, Ethereum will still lead, at least regarding these metrics.
Playing the waiting game
Therefore, if this ‘theory’ will become reality, we can either see a major ETH price increase or a huge BTC price dip. Obviously, the latter seems impossible, as Bitcoin has been doing very well lately. Considering that Ethereum, on the other hand, is somehow stuck for a few weeks, despite the recent surge, so it’s really hard to tell if it will reach Bitcoin very soon. However, the price evolution will be very interesting to watch! After all, we’re talking about some of the most volatile assets ever!
