Ether (ETH) reached the $ 3,500 mark on May 4 when this week’s altcoin rally star battled Dogecoin (DOGE) to surpass the bounce.

Ether does not stop at $ 3,500
Cointelegraph Markets Pro and TradingView data followed the ETH / USD data as the pair crossed the last of their historical limits and continued to rally.

At the time of writing, the largest alternative currency by market value was in a pure price position, as it looked for resistance above $ 3,500.

Ether has already reached new highs on a daily basis this week, with a seven-day gain of 36%.

The excitement was palpable for both analysts and traders.

Scott Melker told his Twitter followers: “I’ve been calling $ 3,600 from ETH for over a month now, but I think it could be a lot higher.”

Short-term price targets require $ 5,000, and despite the range, $ 10,000 to $ 20,000 are unheard of because Ether has surpassed Bitcoin (BTC) in US dollar gains over the past year.

Winklevoss calls Dogecoin “people’s money”
However, on May 4, ETH was not the only one. After turning from full-time highs last month, Dogecoin is back for revenge, crushing its best and topping $ 0.50 for the first time.

The discovery of a new price cap continues at the time of writing, with DOGE / USD throwing $ 0.55 amid a daily gain of 38%.

The move came when the largest Gemini exchange announced it had merged support for Dogecoin, a day after the eToro trading platform announced it.

“Dogecoin is people’s money. Co-founder Tyler Winklevoss, it’s organic, reverent and fun. ”

Bitcoin has predictably felt the heat of the rise of altcoins, resulting in a loss of both market dominance and price power to nearly $ 55,000 for the second time in 24 hours.
