The second-largest cryptocurrency in terms of market valuation, ethereum, has seen significant gains this week in comparison to the rest of the crypto economy. On Wednesday, ethereum tapped an all-time high at $2,736 per unit as the crypto asset has gained 11.48% during the last seven days.

Ethereum Cracks a New ATH

While a great number of digital assets dropped in value last week, ethereum (ETH) prices rebounded much quicker than most. On April 27, after climbing more than 11% during the course of the week, ETH tapped an all-time high (ATH) at $2,706 per ether on Tuesday. Then again, on Wednesday, ether prices touched an ATH of around $2,736 per coin.

During the last seven days, ether prices have jumped 10% higher against bitcoin (BTC) as well. Bitcoin’s current dominance index is being drained too as it’s dropped to 49.2% while ethereum now captures 14.9%.

Since the Berlin upgrade on April 15, gas prices to transact with ETH have dropped.

Following Ethereum’s launch of the “Berlin†upgrade on April 15, ethereum users have noticed that gas prices have dropped considerably. This has ramped up decentralized finance (defi) action this week and the total value locked (TVL) in defi today is a colossal $63.2 billion in value. Maker dominance captures 15.83% of the $63.2 billion held in defi today. Additionally, ethereum settlement volume is slowly catching up with BTC.

While BTC transactions settled $75.1 billion during the last 24 hours, the ETH network processed $23.57 billion over the course of the day. Still, the amount of transactions per day on the Ethereum network is much larger than BTC’s.

1.45 million ethereum transactions were processed in 24 hours while only 289,613 BTC transactions were confirmed. BTC’s median fee to get into the next block on Wednesday is around $14.31 per transaction while ETH’s median fee is only $5.89 per send.

Ethereum Is BTC’s Number One Sidechain, Ether Settlement Surpasses Paypal

ETH is also considered BTC’s number one sidechain as no other chain holds as many wrapped or synthetic BTC tokens as ETH does. Today there’s a whopping 201,058 and the Wrapped Bitcoin (WBTC) project captures 156,936 of the current circulating supply.

There’s currently 201, 058 bitcoin (BTC) or $11 billion worth of BTC using the Ethereum network for transaction speed, lower fees, and defi applications.

While a lot of digital assets have been eating away at BTC’s dominance index, ETH has been taking the most off the leader’s plate. Besides hashpower, Ethereum is outshining BTC on most metrics and has outpaced Paypal as well.

“Paypal settled $936 billion in payments last year,†explained the popular Twitter handle @spencernoon. Ethereum settled $1.5 trillion in transactions just last quarter. This figure is also growing exponentially. Paypal’s market cap is $310 billion, while the ETH market cap is $263 billion,†he added.

Since Spencernoon’s tweet, ethereum has gathered an overall market valuation of around $311 billion today.
