The CEO and founder of the deVere Group, one of the world’s largest independent financial advising organizations, predicts that Ethereum’s price will continue to outperform Bitcoin’s in 2021. Nigel Green, CEO of the deVere Group, indicates that the value of Ethereum will surpass that of Bitcoin within a few years.
Ethereum is outperforming Bitcoin, and this trend has projected to continue for the remainder of 2021, he stated. Ethereum has increased more than 300 percent this year. Meanwhile, while the world’s most popular digital asset has gained only 55 percent. It outperformed all other benchmark assets in the first half of this year; Green told City AM.
According to a reputable researcher, the remarkable performance of Ethereum in 2021 can ascribe to two important causes. Ethereum has a higher level of real-world application potential and is the most popular development platform for smart contracts. As a result, that network’s significance is highlighted as a platform for developers and as a worldwide financial utility, he stated.
Second, Green stated that investor enthusiasm for the “game-changing” move to ETH 2.0 signals a significant boost for Ethereum and blockchain technology as a whole.

On the other hand, the firm executive is bullish on Bitcoin. It believes it will reach, if not exceed, its all-time high of $65,000 by the end of 2021. He did, however, reach the following conclusion. It seems deVere released a fixed-yield bond that tracks Bitcoin and Ethereum futures on the Chicago Mercantile Exchange in early June. According to the U.K. crypto market, CoinJar, Ethereum has surpassed Bitcoin in practically every relevant indicator. The exchange noted in a blog post on August 18 that Ethereum has already reached Bitcoin in several areas. These include transaction volume, total value transacted, daily active wallets, transaction fees.
According to Coinbase’s second-quarter report, Ethereum trading volume eclipsed Bitcoin trade volume for the first time in the exchange’s nine-year history.
ETH trading amounted to 26 percent of overall volumes. That is up from 21 percent in the previous three months and higher than Bitcoin’s 24 percent.
According to the executive chairman of Evolution Mining, wild swings in cryptocurrency prices would eventually push bitcoin investors back to gold. Last year, Tyler Winklevoss, the American financier who created Winklevoss Capital Management and the Gemini cryptocurrency exchange, shared his insight. He stated that “bitcoin is gold 2.0” and will disrupt gold.
Over the weekend, Bitcoin reached $48,000, its highest level since May. However, early Thursday morning during Asia hours, some gains were erased. It was the last trading above $44,000, according to CoinDesk data. The weekend surge came on the heels of a sell-off in June and July, when bitcoin dipped below $30,000.
