Brian Kelly, captainvalor and chief Executive officer of the investment firm BKCM suggests that investing in Ethereum is more promising than bitcoin. And there are three reasons.

3 reasons to invest in Ethereum:

  • Ethereum futures. After researching the air Commission at the securities and exchange Commission (SEC) announced that it does not consider the digital asset securities and will not be adjusted. Kelly said that now the futures Ethereum road is open, however, the investor forgets the reverse side of the coin: the launch of futures may derail the price of cryptocurrency, as it happened with bitcoin. In addition, many believe that the emergence of the futures contracts increases market abuse.
  • Augur. Decentralized platform on the Ethereum blockchain. The largest prediction market (roughly speaking, exchange to predict outcomes of events). If the augur will not collapse the price of air, the effect of the launch of the platform will be very positive.
  • Proof-of-Stake. The transition Ethereum for this algorithm is another factor which will accelerate the growth of cryptocurrencies. This is a serious step to solving the problem of scalability. Recently, the Ethereum Creator Vitalik Buterin said that will also be used protocols, Sharding and Plasma – it will allow to increase system performance 10 000 times.
  • Investors should be aware that although Ethereum and Bitcoin are rivals in market capitalization, they do not compete in the field of technology development. But on the direct competitors of Ethereum cryptocurrency like EOS all the improvements of the system will have a negative impact.
