Ethereum’s Latest Run
It’s been a bullish few days for Ethereum supporters. This most recent run started on the weekend, when ETH hit $800, following a wild Bitcoin run the previous day. The price of ETH soared 40% over the course of Sunday, surpassing $1,000 later that day.
The last time Ether made a run at this price level was in January 2018, towards the end of crypto’s most fabled bull run. Bitcoin topped out at around $19,600 the previous month (December 2017) before ETH surged to a high of $1,448.
