Ethereum is going to undergo big changes over the next few years. This is because Ethereum is going to switch from Proof of Work to Proof of Stake. This will make the cryptocurrency far more energy-efficient. The new version of Ethereum is also supposed to be able to process thousands of transactions per second. In other words: ready for the future!

But will these nice developments also influence the price? In this article, we'll look at the expectations for the next few years. What are the projections for 2024 until 2030?

Historical price analysis of Ethereum

2014

Ethereum started as an Initial Coin Offering (ICO) in 2014. This is like crowdfunding for crypto projects, where you as an investor can be one of the first owners of a new coin or token. Those who got in early were lucky, because the introduction price was only € 0.26 per coin.

2016

At the start of 2016, Ethereum was still a bargain, with its price of less than € 1. Then the price went up considerably, peaking at € 18 in March of that year.

Then things turned sour. DAO was one of the first big projects on the Ethereum network. In an attack, hackers stole 46 million dollars worth of ether. This seriously affected the mood, and Ethereum lost nearly a third of its value.

Ethereum closed the year with a price of € 7.53.

2017

Next year worked out great for the entire crypto market. The exchange rates went up, slow at first, but then suddenly very steeply.

In March, Ethereum hit the € 40 price threshold. It already seemed like a good price at the time, but it turned out to be just a taste of what was coming. Three months later, the price hit € 350.

The exchange rate moved sideways for a few months, but picked up the pace again in November. The year ended with a bang for Ethereum, with a price of over € 650.

2018

Have you been investing in cryptocurrency for awhile? Then 2018 probably still haunts you. It started off so lovely: Ethereum kept rising beyond € 1,000 and reached a new record.

But that turned out to be the peak of the bull run. In April, Ethereum was worth only € 340. After a short recovery towards € 675 the crypto market plummeted even further.

Finally, the exchange rate sank as low as € 120, the lowest point since May 2017.

2019

Next year was a real rollercoaster for Ethereum. The climb upwards started in January and ended in June with a price of almost € 300. Then the price dove faster than a hawk ambushing a mouse. Ethereum ended the year with a price of € 120 and had basically gone full circle, right back to where it started off.

2020

While there was still enough toilet paper on the shelves and your auntie could still give you three pecks on the cheeks on your birthday, Ethereum's price went up. The exchange rate peaked at € 260 in February.

When it became clear how serious the Coronavirus Pandemic was, this had far-reaching consequences for all financial markets. Halfway into March, Ethereum dove to € 80.

In hindsight, this would have been a great time to buy the dip, because from this point on, the price started to rise considerably. By the end of December, the exchange rate was at € 600, the highest it had been since the start of 2018.

2021

The upward trend has been found. By the end of March, Ether surpasses the historic price of €1,500. Easily add more than double to that! On May 12, 2021, Ethereum reaches a nice peak of €3,580. Then, there's a correction, but not for long. The absolute peak of this year and ATH is reached in November around a price of €4,100.

2022

The year of the crypto winter. Ether also doesn't escape it, and in July 2022, the price drops to a low of €1,022.

2023

From then on, the upward trend resumes very slowly, and on December 8, 2023, a price of €2,184 is reached.
