Ethereum is on track to $5,000: Mike McGlone
Chief commodity strategist of Bloomberg, Mike McGlone, has recently taken to Twitter to share his take on why the second-largest crypto, Ethereum, could be on track to hit $5,000.
The Bloomberg expert tweeted that the blockchain co-founded by Vitalik Buterin has become a major tool for the digitization of finance and money. Therefore, this is a solid foundation that is likely to push Ethereum further up—to the $5,000 level.
McGlone also mentioned Bitcoin, reminding the audience that its supply is declining and the demand for it is surging, which is also a sign of the explosive growth Bitcoin is likely to see.
In his earlier tweets this year, the expert opined that by the end of 2021, Bitcoin may reach a whopping $100,000.
