Ethereum, the number one altcoin, is currently on track to hit $300 after a very prolific day. Over the past 24 hours, Vitalik Buterin’s creation recorded almost a 7 percent price increase, according to CoinMarketCap data.

The main altcoin on the block

At the time of writing, the ETH price is sitting at $286.65. This is its highest price since September 2018, when Ethereum got caught in a death spiral. During December 2018, which is widely regarded as the bear market bottom, the coin plunged into the double-digit territory.

Leaving bad things behind, Ethereum is now heading for $300 after recording bigger gains than other major altcoins on June 21. It even outperformed Bitcoin, which is on the verge of printing the $10,000 price tag.

Ethereum’s current price action is far from those predictions that were voiced by cryptocurrency traders just two weeks ago. One expert claimed that only a miracle would save ETH from dipping below $200.
