Lead Market Analyst at Swyftx, Pav Hundal has supported Ethereum’s price increase prediction. Hundal stated that the upcoming Bitcoin halving in 2024 may push the cryptocurrency’s price up, as historical patterns have suggested a potential upward movement for Ethereum’s value during past Bitcoin halving events.
“Historically, as we approach a Bitcoin halving, Ethereum tends to revisit its price valuations from earlier that year. This trend aligns with the repeated observation that Bitcoin’s dominance (proportion of the total [crypto] market capitalization) swells as we near the halving event. We can anticipate that there will be a potential shift from altcoins [like ETH] back into Bitcoin in the lead-up to the halving,” Hundal stated.
Finder Experts Say BTC Still Holds Upper Hand
Despite the positive outlook of Ethereum’s price in the future by Finder’s crypto experts, a large majority of Finder’s specialists have expressed skepticism about Ethereum’s market capitalization surpassing that of Bitcoin.
When asked if they saw ETH’s market cap “flipping” BTCs, 43% of the expert panelists remained unconvinced that Ethereum would overtake Bitcoin.
Creator of Seasonal Tokens, Ruadhan O. has stated that he believed that Ethereum’s utility surpassed Bitcoin’s however he does not see ETH’s market cap surpassing BTC’s. He explained that his reasons were due to Ethereum’s high competition with other altcoins in the crypto market.
“Ethereum remains expensive to use [and] it will lose market share to cheaper alternatives. Bitcoin isn’t useful. Nobody needs a Bitcoin. There’s no demand for Bitcoin’s utility at a lower price because there’s no utility. This is why Bitcoin isn’t losing market share to other proof-of-work coins,” O stated.
