On Sunday (February 26th), the price of ether, the native digital currency of the Ethereum Blockchainchain network, broke a record.
To Report CoinDesk, this morning, the price of this digital currency, with an increase of 18.5 percent over the past 24 hours, exceeded its previous record of $ 1,439.33 last week and reached $ 1,454.32. Ether is currently trading at $ 1,430 after a slight setback.
Although Ether has peaked following Bitcoin’s growth momentum, its second-largest digital currency in terms of gaining power in the new year has snatched the lead from Bitcoin. Since the beginning of this year (January 4), ether has seen a price increase of 88%; Bitcoin, on the other hand, grew by only 10.98%.
