Apart from the growing price and network health, Ethereum has also managed to capture the interest of big giants like Amazon, Coinbase, Citigroup, Fidelity, Google, HTC, Microsoft, Overstock, and Samsung among others.

We are in a bull market and Ethereum has been leading many of the bull runs we saw in 2019 that coupled with interest from big names from mainstream industries and developers working on the network means ETH would see its glory days yet again.
