Ether reached $4,026.93 earlier today, having climbed more than 130 after falling to a recent low of $1,711.23 on June 22, additional CoinDesk data show.
At this recent high, Ether’s market value was up over 400. In contrast, Cardano’s ada tokens has risen to an all-time high of $3.10 yesterday, data shows.
