Relative to Bitcoin, Ethereum was an unknown cryptocurrency. Now, it’s reaching record highs after Russian President Vladimir Putin met with its founder.

Bitcoin ATM presence is growing

Cryptocurrency speculators and investment gurus are having a great time predicting Bitcoin’s future as the popular digital currency’s price continues to break records on a regular basis. A well-informed prediction, a random guess or just wishful thinking, everyone is coming up with a new Bitcoin price forecast. The latest one puts the cryptocurrency’s price at $1 million in the future. Now, with a booming bitcoin economy and several years of growth behind them, physical bitcoin kiosks or “ATMs” may be emerging as the answer. There are already over a thousand around the world, and the new ATM challenger Bitlish announced last week that it wants to open as many as 5,000 more in Europe alone.

The parabolic acceleration of Bitcoin prices

The price of Bitcoins has risen more than tenfold since it bottomed in February 2015. Such a parabolic move can be compared to the rise in Silver or Gold towards 1980 or 2011, or the NASDAQ in the run-up to its 2000 top during the bubble. And indeed, the promise of a finite non Fiat universal currency, which is easy to store and transfer are huge. Amid capital flight out of China and legalization in Japan, Bitcoins are finding increased legitimacy either as a practical store a value or as the possible next international transaction currency. We hereby attempt to monitor this parabolic rise, an exercise which is never easy.

Where is the Bitcoin price going next?

Bitcoin prices skyrocketed last week and surged to all-time highs above $2.700, and this generated on the web a lot of articles about a possible bubble of this complex and strange asset. Like all the financial assets, also Bitcoin can be studied in Technical Analysis using charts. One of the most common errors I have noticed, is the lack of a proper representation of this asset on the graphs. In the chart below, you can see the BITCOIN/US DOLLAR FX SPOT RATE chart from 2011. It looks impressive but also misleading.

Ethereum, the next rival for Bitcoin

Cryptocurrency is not only Bitcoin: when Ether was announced in 2015, it seemed like a very ambitious project. By this time, bitcoin had already established dominance in the cryptocurrency industry, but it had been created with a different purpose that would diverge from bitcoin’s primary use as a cryptocurrency. Ethereum would build a network, much like bitcoin, which was based on blockchain, but Ethereum would allow other apps to be created on it. The idea being to allow companies to take advantage of blockchain technology and run their own stuff. In return, Ethereum users would earn ether for keeping the network running. After receiving funding, Ethereum users were rewarded with ether, whose value was about $3.
