Everyone is bullish on Ethereum

At press time, Ethereum is changing hands at $187 after an almost two percent uptick over the last 24 hours, CoinStats data shows. It is the second-best performing coin after Binance Coin (BNB) that surged by six percent.

Ethereum's price action has been subdued for months almost two months after the coin plummeted to the low-$160 level in tandem with the broader market. Even after Bitcoin's quick recovery on Oct. 25, ETH failed to touch the psychologically important $200 level.

The new network will be powered by the so-called "Beacon Chain," a proof-of-stake (PoS) chain that will run parallel to the existing proof-of-work (PoW) chain.

Still, Ethereum 2.0 has to live up to expectations in order to achieve scalability. Bitcoin developer Peter Todd recently called it another scam given that it was falsely advertised as scalable.
