Ethereum price heads to a new all-time high

Yorke Rhodes, Director of Digital Transformation at Microsoft has made a bold prediction on Ethereum. Rhodes believes that Ethereum will become the new decentralized app store. 

As a flagship marketplace for web3 applications, Ethereum adoption could skyrocket within the next two years. The idea is based on the potential of the Ethereum network as a hub for decentralized applications. 

Ethereum hosts about 3,000 decentralized applications on its network. Based on data from Glassnode, whales with over 100,000 ETH in their wallet have been distributing their holdings for over a year.

The overall supply of Ethereum is more decentralized than it was three years ago. Interestingly, small wallet investors have accumulated more Ethereum, consistently over the same time period. This decentralization and accumulation is indicative of Ethereum’s rising popularity among investors. 

Ethereum supply distribution among small and large wallet investors demonstrates this trend.
