Ethereum in the news
Ethereum has been making a lot of headlines these days due to various achievements of the project and the fact that the coin managed to hit more ATHs.
It’s been reported that the billionaire investor and business tycoon Mark Cuban revealed a game-changing catalyst that could catapult Ethereum to new ATHs.
Cuban recently said that Ethereum (ETH) has the potential to take over the world of business.
“The reason ETH has a chance to blow up even bigger is that we have yet to really see business applications built on ETH smart contracts start to happen. When they do, every company will be ETH literate which will change the game. But layer 2s will have an important role to play too.”
He also said that ETH’s highly anticipated update to the proof-of-stake model would play a vital role in maintaining its dominance in the space.
Ethereum is currently trading in the green and at the moment of writing this article, ETH is priced at 4,268.04.
