    Celsius CEO: Ethereum “Flippening” Is Happening Now

    Celsius Network CEO Alex Mashinsky recently said that the Ethereum (ETH) "flippening" of Bitcoin has occurred in terms of dollars. When Kitco News presenter David Lin asked about the likelihood of Ethereum exceeding Bitcoin in market valuation, Mashinsky said:

    “Ethereum already surpassed bitcoin in dollar terms as shown in the total holding of the Celsius community, and I think that the broader market will follow it in the next year or two. We will see that flippening happening in the broader market.”

    Mashinsky revealed that when he makes his predictions, he looks at the Celsius figures and listens to what the Hodler community at Celsius is telling him every day. The CEO said that he measures his predictions by how much in dollars a million people hold on the Celsius network and whether they have more in Bitcoin or more in Ethereum.

    “Ethereum surpassed Bitcoin in the last month or two. The first time that our million users had more than [Bitcoin] $17billion in deposits, the total was held in dollar terms in Ethereum.”

    According to the executive, we will witness broader adoption of Ethereum over Bitcoin. However, both of them are unique applications and blockchains that will both experience greater adoption in the future, he added.

    Generally, Mashinsky believes layer two solutions solved ETH’s problems near term. Still, ETH 2.0 will be a significant and incremental improvement down the road enabling both solutions to work in tandem, he noted.

    Ethereum Price Is Expected To Reach These Levels

    Having taken down the 50-day SMA, the Ethereum price has a clear path to reach the $2,500 psychological level.
