The second most popular cryptocurrency, ether (Ethereum) – rose 4 percent, to $ 272,7 but has not yet returned to the record heights.

We will remind, last time Bitcoin was updated the historical maximum yesterday, 8 August. The rate of bitcoin has more than tripled this year, surpassing the mark of 2 thousand dollars in may and 3 thousand in June. The cryptocurrency market as a whole in April grew by more than four times.

As reported, experts are quite skeptical about the prospects of a new kind of bitcoin, which at the moment, by and large, is not particularly valuable, if you forget about the stock races. This may change in the future, if the new currency would receive support from all market participants, but while the miners have given priority to the classic bitcoin.
