The History Of Ethereum, In One Infographic

Bitcoin may have been the first cryptocurrency to get mainstream attention, but rival currency ether has gained more than 2,000 percent so far in 2017.

While bitcoin has captured the attention of currency traders and investors, the Ethereum ether blockchain was designed with additional features intended to appeal to the corporate world. This corporate appeal coupled with backing from powerhouses such as JPMorgan Chase & Co. , Microsoft Corporation  and Intel Corporation  has some onlookers speculating that ether will actually overtake bitcoin in market cap by the end of 2018.

“What we’ve seen in ethereum is a much richer, organic developer ecosystem develop very, very quickly, which is what has driven ethereum’s price growth, which has actually been much more aggressive than bitcoin,” Polychain Capital CEO Olaf Carlson-Wee said in May.
