Ethereum has already beaten Bitcoin in at least one respect. That old already, if you can speak in those terms in the new cryptographic world that confronts both digital currencies, and their competitions beyond the simple currency. And it is that, according to data from Coinglass, for the first time Ethereum exceeds Bitcoin in the volume of options that have been traded.

And we are talking about a historical improvement, because, as Coindesk reports, the accumulated value in dollars of the Ether option contracts opened on the Deribit exchange, the dominant exchange, reached 5,700 million, with a growth of 32% compared to 4,300 of operations registered by Bitcoin . As we say, it is the leading crypto options exchange in the market, since it represents more than 90% of the total volume that is registered in this type of operations.

In a week in which Michael Saylor, how to know the CEO of MicroStrategy has charged again against Ethereum. In his particular crypto world, in fact, there is only Bitcoin, of which he has been buying with the falls. He points out that to talk about the benefits of Ethereum, we would have to wait for the protocol to be completed , with an eye on La Fusión, because he considers that it is not ready yet.

All this in direct confrontation with the co-founder of Ether, Vitalik Buterin, who considers that after The Merge the project of the second cryptocurrency in the market is 55% complete, after the approximate dates of September that mark the 19th of that month as the most expected. Saylor points out that the protocol does not seem to be finished or stable for another 36 months.

But he has gone much further in his criticism to understand that he lacks, as an institutional investor, proven information on the security of the protocol and its technical reliability and questions the technical viability, but also the ethics of the project.

Despite this, we see how Ethereum continues its upward march, despite taking profits, in the market. A full-fledged rebound that goes through the gains of 14.7% recorded in the last week, which make up a month with advances of 53.2%. Of course, at semi-annual levels the fall is still considerable at 40.6% and even more abrupt , if we talk about what we have been up to in 2022, in which Ethereum loses 56.7% in the market.

Already in the Finder survey, the perspectives of its consulted panelists place the price of Ethereum at the end of 2022 at $1,711, 8 % above its current price levels. The negative part is that the predictions considerably reduce the future price prospects that were marked for Ethereum, which from January to date have been reduced by 45%.

But it is still positive for its departure in the face of 2025 , in which an Ethereum price is expected at the end of the year of $5,739 , and already, in 2030, it will reach $14,412 per Ether.

Among individual expectations, we see Ethereum at $1,800 at the end of 2022 in the projection of Ben Ritchie, managing director of Digital Capital Management, for whom it continues to be his favorite in decentralized applications. And there are those who are much more optimistic, such as Carol Alexander, a finance professor at the University of Sussex who sees the price of Ethereum at $3,000 at the end of the year, but closely linked to the success and size that The Fusion reaches.

The stock market technical indicators that Investment Strategies preparesthey place Ethereum with a substantial improvement. From the rebound, it gains 2 points and is placed with a total score of 2.5 points out of 10 possible for the value. Only on the positive side do we find the upward trend in the medium term, to which is added the volatility or amplitude range, which is decreasing in the long term.

The rest is a long-term bearish trend, total moment, slow and fast, which is negative, the volume of business is decreasing in the medium and long term and the volatility, in the medium term, which is increasing for Ethereum.
