Ethereum price hits a new high above $4,500 right as Bitcoin recaptures $64K

Bullish volatility is rising and multiple tokens rose to new all-time highs, as traders race to determine which coin will be next to go on a mission to the moon.

The price of Bitcoin (BTC), which rose to $64,000, reached an all-time high of $4,523 for Ether (ETH). This move is just days after the successful Altair upgrade of the Ethereum network. It was the first update to Beacon chain. The network is now closer to full Eth2 rollout.

Cointelegraph Markets Pro and TradingView data show that Ether prices hit a low of $4.283 on Nov. 2 and then rose to an all-time high of $4,523.

History doesn’t repeat itself. But it rhymes.

The cryptocurrency landscape has changed a lot since 2017’s bull market. This is due in part to the larger number of institutional investors who have bigger bankrolls to invest. However, this is an important development to watch as the market looks to end 2021 strong.

Ether’s upward trend is also due to the fact that the number of tokens in the Eth2 Staking Contract surpassed 8,000,000 for the first-time. This process continues to drain the available supply and puts positive pressure on the price.

Overall, Ether’s consensus outlook is positive with many analysts calling for Ether to be worth $10,000 by 2021.
