Ethereum the second largest cryptocurrency by market cap had a phenomenal year, so far.
Yesterday ethereum tested the Byzantium fork. Byzantium will implement nine new improved protocols, If the fork is successful there will be a revival of interest for ethereum.
Byzantium will introduce a lot of new features to ethereum, one of many will be better privacy. Ethereum will work similarly to zcash and monero, allowing for the verification of data without the need for the data to be reviled.This will surely give a big boost to ethereum’s market capitalization at the expense of other cryptocurrencies.
Investors weren’t very enthusiastic about ethereum in the last few months, but if the fork is implemented successfully in October, ethereum prices will probably climb much higher.
