Bloomberg Says Ethereum’s Price Is Speculative While Bitcoin’s Price Is Based on Fundamentals
Obviously, both ETH and BTC are experiencing a favorable price trend at the moment. Bitcoin has once again risen above $11,500 price region, while Ethereum is targeting higher prices after breaking above $400.
However, Bloomberg is of the opinion that Ethereum’s present parabolic movement is speculative, while Bitcoin’s price appreciation is based on fundamentals.
Bloomberg looks to be unimpressed with Ethereum (ETH) in its August crypto outlook, stating that its price uprising is based on speculation, unlike the largest cryptocurrency by market cap, Bitcoin (BTC):
“Ethereum has extended last year’s highs and leaped to one of the top-performing major crypto assets in 2020, but we view its rally as more speculative vs. the favorable demand vs. supply conditions supporting Bitcoin.”
