Ethereum was created back in 2015 not to rival Bitcoin, but to be a host for various applications that can be built on its network. Ethereum is constantly compared to Bitcoin not because of its technology, but because of its growing price and popularity amongst investors.

Since then, Ethereum has soared in price and peaked at $5,617 back in May 2021. The current price of Ethereum is $3,332, which is 29.2% lower than what it was just 1 month ago. All prices are quoted in Australian dollars.
