Ethereum shatters $1,448 ceiling and surges to touch new ATH

Hot on the heels of Bitcoin, the world’s largest cryptocurrency, registering its own ATH a few weeks ago, it would seem that the world’s largest altcoin is intent on replicating BTC’s performance as well. Ether has now breached its previous ATH and registered a new high at $1476 in the early hours of 25 Jan.

At the time of writing, ETH was valued at $1435, having seen a surge of close to 10 percent in the past 24 hours. This is interesting since the altcoin also surged to become one of the world’s top-100 assets by market cap at the start of the month.
