Ethereum ETH/USD is trading in the green on Wednesday, outperforming the wider cryptocurrency market, amid a couple of bullish stances taken by analysts.
The global investment bank said in its note that ETH “currently looks like the cryptocurrency with the highest real use potential as Ethereum, the platform on which it is the native digital currency, is the most popular development platform for smart contract applications.”

The view that ETH could gain ground against BTC was also held by market analyst Michaël van de Poppe, who theorized on Twitter that ETH/BTC rate will rise from the present 0.05-0.06 BTC levels to 0.07 levels.
Poppe is basing his thesis on ETH/BTC support level at 0.063 BTC. The analyst expected that if the floor held, 0.075 could be achieved.
