The largest altcoin ether (ETH) is trading at $ 3178 on Monday, May 3. Crypto capitalization per day increased by 8.55% to $ 367.373 billion.
The rise in the cost of ether led to the fact that one of the leaders of the Ethereum development team, Vitalik Buterin, became the most youthful billionaire in the cryptosphere.
The wallet, owned by Buterin, now holds ETH for a total of just over $ 1 billion.
Since the beginning of 2021, air prices have more than quadrupled. Let us remind you that the altcoin was trading at around $ 700 in January.
Over the past seven days, the coin has skyrocketed in value by almost 40%. There are already forecasts in the expert community that altcoin will reach $ 10,000 by the end of 2021.
Many Twitter users drew attention to the fact that Vitalik Buterin became the youngest crypto billionaire.
It is also worth noting that the founder of Ethereum is actively involved in charitable activities. At the end of April, it became known that the Russian-Canadian programmer donated 100,000 ETH and 100,000 Maker (MKR) to a fund to help fight coronavirus in India.
