Ethereum has been making lots of headlines this year due to the various achievements of the projects. An upgrade is also around the corner as you probably know by now.
It’s been just revealed that Goldman Sachs is currently analyzing ETH and the firm believes that the coin could replace BTC as a store of value.
It’s been revealed by the online publication the Daily Hodl that the financial giant says that while BTC has the stronger brand, Ethereum likely has the highest number of real use cases.
Business Insider noted that the bank does not see either Ether or Bitcoin taking over gold anytime soon.
This could be because of the extremely volatile nature of cryptos which will prevent them from being seen as a safe asset class.
“Gold is competing with crypto to the same extent it is competing with other risky assets such as equities and cyclical commodities. We view gold as a defensive inflation hedge and crypto as a risk-on inflation hedge.”
