Interest in Bitcoin, Ether
While emphasizing the growing rate of adoption for Bitcoin, one of a prominent industry analyst, Willy Woo, recently commented:
“The adoption curve of Bitcoin is faster than any other global infrastructure rollout before it. It’s growing faster than the rollout of the Internet, mobile phones, and easily faster than “virtual banking” players like PayPal.”
For Ethereum, there have been lots of notable growth in the network users since this year, from the DeFi and staking service. Recent information from Santiment indicated that about 177.5k new Ethereum addresses were created last Saturday. This accounted for a 35-month high in the number of addresses created in a single day.
