Move Over, Bitcoin. Ether Is the Digital Currency of the Future. "The momentum has shifted to Ethereum -- there is no doubt about that," -William Mougayar - founder of Virtual Capital Ventures The value of Ether, the cryptocurrency of the Ethereum platform, has risen an eye-popping 4,500 percent since the beginning of the year. Experts predict the value of Ethereum's virtual currency will race past Bitcoin in the coming months should the current trend continue.
