Bullish signs in cryptocurrency market

The cryptocurrency market has continued to recover at a rapid rate over the past 24 hours, as several major cryptocurrencies such as bitcoin and Ethereum recorded major gains.

Ethereum is on a roll

In particular, Ether, the native cryptocurrency of the Ethereum network, demonstrated a staggering 15 percent increase in price overnight, from around $1,100 to $1,235. The recent surge in the price of Ether can be attributed to the progress the Ethereum open-source development community has led in scaling the network.

The increase in the daily transaction volume of the Ethereum network reflects the exponential growth rate of decentralized applications launched on top of the Ethereum protocol. Applications like EtherDelta, 0x, Radar Relay, and CryptoCribs have gained a significant amount of active users over the past few months.

This week, $1.6 billion cryptocurrency trading platform Coinbase CEO Brian Armstrong praised CryptoCribs, a decentralized Ethereum-based Airbnb-like platform with a non-ICO model. In the cryptocurrency industry, it is difficult to find commercially successful decentralized applications that had not conducted initial coin offerings (ICOs), because ICO has become an easy cash grab for developers.

In July of 2017, Aragon co-founder Luis Cuenda stated that he does not know any Ethereum developer who is not a millionaire yet due to the ICO market.

“I don’t know any good Ethereum developer that isn’t a millionaire — There’s a gold rush among developers to learn the coding language of money,”
