Standard Chartered Has A $35,000 Target For Ethereum, Here's Why

Institutional investors have begun to play with the idea of Ethereum surging due to its financial market growth. Analysts at Standard Chartered see Ethereum’s growth overtaking Bitcoin's, predicting a future value of $35,000 for ETH.

While the Bitcoin or Ethereum debate rages on between early investors and maxis, London-based bank Standard Chartered has taken a bullish stand on Ethereum. ETH now has more attention, thanks to the London fork, a recent innovation on the blockchain. The network records that up to date, almost 263,000 tokens burned with 7,500,000 locked in ETH 2.0 deposit contracts. Some analysts now predict a huge surprise in the future.

British banking giant sees Ethereum as a financial market filled with different services for users. The Network is a platform for lending, interest-earning on investments, and others.

The multinational financial service firm explains that the target represents a 1000% increase from the present price levels. It envisages that Ethereum will gather a market cap of about $4 trillion with ETH at $35,000. However, this will depend on the impact of deflation of its EIP-1559 update.
