- Allegations of centralization have been made against Ethereum.
- The 2019 prediction target continues with no change at $1000.
In today’s world of cryptocurrency, decentralization is the biggest factor which has the potential to make it or break it. The whole idea of cryptocurrency is based on this. Recently a study by Chainalysis Inc. revealed that the second biggest crypto coin in the world has some big whales. As per their study, around 30% of the whole Ethereum’s value is stored by 376 people. This is not for the first time allegation of such kind is made against Ethereum. Earlier, another study suggested that one-fifth of all Ethereum coins are stored with 448 people. The rising in the numbers is not a good sign for the market. Kim Grauer, a senior economist at the company, said, “The majority of whales aren’t traders, they’re mostly holding.” We predict the coin to have a highly bullish medium-term outlook. By the end of 2019, the value should be around 1000 USD. We should now analyze the current figures to understand the pattern.
