Cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum have shot into the consciousness of investors and the tech-savvy. Will these replace money as we know it?
Relative to Bitcoin, Ethereum was an unknown cryptocurrency. Now, it's reaching record highs after Russian President Vladimir Putin met with its founder.
Currently, there are around 850 cryptocurrencies available to buy on the market. Most started with some form of ICO or token sale.
After reaching the record-breaking $2000 last Saturday, Bitcoin rewrites that record, as it gains $500 more, surpassing the $2500 mark.
