"The bullish rally in the price of the coin can be adduced to the apparent inability of its competing blockchain networks to take it out of the market. Ethereum still remains the resilient network for DeFi following the scalability issues BSC is currently facing," Konstantin Anissimov, Executive Director at the CEX.IO trading platform, told Cryptonews.com, adding that Ethereum investors are aware of this and "their buying action has returned Ethereum towards a path in which testing a new high above USD 3,000 is now achievable than ever."
