Nigel Green, CEO of the deVere Group, thinks that ETH can trade more than $2500 by this year. He stated three main reasons behind this prediction. He said that as there is an increasing demand for smart contracts, decentralization of cloud computing and more demand for digital currencies, ETH has high chances to spike up this year. According to Brian Schuster, the founder of Ark Capital LLC, ETH is predicted to trade around $100,000 in the next five years.
