Co-founder of social news website Reddit Alexis Ohanian (Alexis Ohanian) did a very bold prediction for Ethereum. According to the Internet entrepreneur, by the end of the year the price of cryptocurrencies will reach $15 thousand.

In an interview with Fortune Ohanyan, who is currently working in founded in 2012, venture capital firms, the Initialized Capital, said:

“I still hold a little bitcoin, I think BTC is already conquered, the share of attention that he will continue to be a means of savings. I’m the most optimistic about Ethereum, simply because people actually build on it.”

As examples of successful apps built on Ethereum, Ohanian called the sensational “cryptoquotes” — CryptoKitties, noting that “the first version of many things often looks like a toy”.

On a direct question about the forecast rates for the two most popular cryptocurrencies Alexis Ohanian said:

“At the end of the year bitcoin will be worth $20 thousand. And Ethereum will cost $15 thousand. Great, now people can call me if I’m wrong”.

If bitcoin is the co-founder of Reddit actually predicted the return of the December high, then Ethereum, according to his forecast, should for seven months of the year grow by more than 22 times. Market capitalization is the second cryptocurrency should reach nearly $1.5 trillion, significantly exceeding the total value of bitcoin is approximately $340 billion.

We will remind, well-known financial analyst Tom Lee (Tom Lee) earlier predicted that the price of bitcoin by the end of 2018 will reach 25 thousand per coin. He later confirmed his prediction.
