Ethereum is kicking off 2018 with impressive new milestones.
The red-hot cryptocurrency cleared $1,000 for the first time early Friday morning, according to data from Markets Insider.
The coin, which started 2017 at around $10, has since fallen back below $1,000 and was trading up roughly 2.74% in the last 24 hours, at $974 per token. Ethereum’s market capitalization broke through $100 billion on Thursday.
These fresh milestones follow the release of the cryptocurrency’s fourth quarter report, which was tweeted out by founder Vitalik Buterin.
