- Two Ethereum start-ups join hands to develop bank account-like protection for ETH coins.
- The bullish medium-term places the coin at $500 target.
Cryptocurrencies have traveled a long distance since the inception in the effort to replace the conventional banking and financial system. But the one thing that works as an obstacle is the security of the value one individual holds. The multiple cases of coin theft and server hacking are raising doubts in the minds of many potential investors. To mitigate this fear, two Ethereum start-ups have partnered to help Ethereum in bringing bank account-like protection to users. Insurance cooperative Nexus Mutual and wallet provider Argent now plans to merge smart contracts and insurance to give ultimate protection to the users against theft and hacking. Argent co-founder Itamar Lesuisse said, “We are thinking about not just crypto users but also new users – and so the end goal is to repeat what they get from their bank.” The medium-term outlook is bullish for Ethereum. By the end of this year, Ethereum may touch the value around 500 USD. Let us look at the current status of the coin.
