Ethereum’s future

While ETH prices could be far from 2021 all-time highs, the altcoin retains a bright future, and some believe it might outshine Bitcoin. Renowned crypto analyst Michael van de Poppe believes Ethereum will outperform in Q1 2024.

The #Bitcoin dominance is likely peaking pre-Bitcoin halving.

That means that Q1 is going to give a great return for investments in the $ETH ecosystem.

I’m positioned and ready.

Michael stated that Bitcoin will hit its peak performance in January, which will mean funds shifting toward the altcoin market. He added that the initial quarter of 2024 could present lucrative returns for investments within the Ethereum ecosystem.
