While Ethereum is not yet universally accepted at online gambling websites, that could soon change and there are indications Ethereum could soon rival bitcoin as the most valuable currency on the market.  SCROLL DOWN

“Ethereum has the possibility to overtake the market capitalisation, and thus value, of bitcoin,”  Hubert Olszewski, director of business development at Blockchain Board of Derivatives, tells The Independent. “This is because from the get-go it was a more versatile tool.”

It is to be used to help people spend money,” he said. “People can actually spend and use, not hoard so that in ten years, they can go, ‘look! I’ve got more of something than I can hold.’”
