Ethereum and Binance Coin (BNB) have a Bright Future

Furthermore, DeFi is continually gaining acceptance as an alternative form of investing. Each of these networks will eventually be home to many of the DeFi protocols thus increasing the value of their respective native digital assets.
Bitcoin’s Market Cap Exceeds Visa
CZ’s comments on the market cap of Ethereum being greater than Spotify, General Motors, Baidu, Ferrari and BMW, comes after Bitcoin surpassed Visa in terms of market capitalization. Bitcoin’s current market capitalization is $507 Billion which is $0.507 Trillion.
Bitcoin could soon have a market cap greater than Visa and Mastercard combined. Bitcoin’s market cap needs to exceed $822.76 billion based on the current market capitalization of the two companies as highlighted below.
- Visa – $487.79 Billion
- Mastercard – $334.97 Billion
For Bitcoin to achieve such a feat, its price will have to exceed $44,300 in the near future. Such a feat is possible in 2021 with Bitcoin hitting $50k or higher in the months to follow.
