Ethereum’s market capitalization has now exceeded the limits of the world’s largest banks
According to CoinMarketCap, on December 1, ETH’s market capitalization exceeded the boundaries of some of the world’s largest financial institutions, including JPMorgan.

Additionally, Ethereum has been around for less than a decade, while the world’s largest bank, JPMorgan, has been around for at least 40 years. Although Ethereum’s market cap is $ 516 billion, it is still among the top 15 largest assets by market cap in the world, on par with the meta of Fb, Tesla, Amazon, Bitcoin, Apple, Microsoft, and other other popular products before.
The Ethereum blockchain is undoubtedly one of the most popular and widely used blockchains in the cryptocurrency market. Because of its useful smart contract function, it is the most preferred blockchain for DeFi applications. In addition, Ethereum processes more than 1 million transactions daily, making it one of the most widely used cryptocurrency networks.
However, Ethereum’s growth is being hampered by the record high transaction fees it is facing with the implementation of EIP-1559 and the transition to a proof-of-stake network.
