Drastic Interest Change of Investors
Bitcoin and Ethereum have attracted several institutional investors in the past few months. Moreover, Bitcoin market capitalization has sailed above $700 billion, contemplating investors’ buy in the asset. Similar is the case with Ether (ETH). ETH has a market capitalization exceeding $180 billion. Thus the asset cannot be ignored by the investors either.
The reason for interest shift from Ethereum is nothing else but its gas fees, which has significantly surged as years have passed.
However, the notable point is that the Ethereum killer coins are surging up significantly. Such a situation may cause a drastic interest shift of pro investors towards these smart contract coins soon.
