Ethereum price (ETH) has soared past $40 in the last 24 hours as the altcoin market continues to attract frenetic activity.
The biggest altcoin by market cap shot up by almost 50 percent since Wednesday, with recent development announcements and Bitcoin’s precarious network state among the reasons being given for its success.

For some, however, the party may already be over. Dash, the altcoin whose growth appeared to kickstart mimicry from other assets, came down from yesterday’s $100+ peak to currently settle at $92.
Developers had admitted they were unprepared for such a price rise, having to completely rearrange their roadmap for distribution of funds.
