Ethereum's price has topped that of Platinum, making ETH one of the top 30 most valuable assets worldwide.
ETH's price hit another high on Wednesday, reaching $2.741.78, and signaling that the Ethereum ecosystem is in the midst of a bullish run.
As a result, the currency's market capitalization reached $315.4bn and surpassed that of the precious metal, based on information provided by CompaniesMarketCap.com. In comparison, the market capitalization of the metal stood at $303bn.
Platinum has continued to post gains for investors over the first three months of the year, but silver and gold have declined. Some wealthy investors have even opted for Bitcoin instead of gold.
Looking at overall Ethereum performance, the currency has gained over 360% since January 1, not least because of Bitcoin's continuous growth.
The ecosystem has received another boost on the news that the European Investment Bank is testing a new type of digital bond that will run on the Ethereum network.
Ethereum packs a bigger punch in the crypto market today, claiming 15.1% of the overall digital assets market, compared to around 50% for Bitcoin.
Both Ethereum and Bitcoin are excellent choices if you are looking to play at online casinos. Crypto options such as 1xBit, Bitcasino and FortuneJack are all excellent entry-points into the crypto gaming world.
