Alexis Ohanian believes Ethereum is a better bet that Bitcoin even though Bitcoin will rise as high as 20k.

Co-founder of Reddit, tells investors who intend to tap into the cryptocurrency market to put their money on Ethereum instead of Bitcoin.

During an interview with Fortune on Tuesday, Ohanian said:

“The fact that people are building on Ethereum makes me bullish about it.”.

Ohanian is a full-time tech executive at Initialized Capital, a venture capital firm that has made cryptocurrency investments. In 2006, Reddit sold Conde Nast for an amount that wasn’t disclosed but is rumoured to be around $10 – $20 million.

Why Do Developers Prefer the Ethereum Blockchain?

Like many other developers and tech gurus, Ohanian sees Ethereum as a better option to Bitcoin because it gives developers flexibility and ease to build applications on the blockchain. According to him, Bitcoin’s price will go as high as $20,000 before the year ends while Ethereum will go as high as $1,500.

Initially, reports from Fortune’s Term Sheet was that Ohanian predicted that Ether would sell as high as $15,000. However, the story was later amended, and the figure was changed to $1500.

Also, Ohanian, the renowned venture capitalist and entrepreneur, said that the blockchain technology, the technology behind distributed ledgers, and cryptocurrencies, will need to be harnessed for about two more years before it can reach its full potential.

According to him, the hype around the blockchain technology is premature. He compared the blockchain technology to artificial intelligence and machine learning stating that a lot of hype surrounded that technology before it finally took off in an applicable way.
