DAR's Matthew Gertler quoted in the US News and World Report:
"'This comes down to a person's risk tolerance," says Matthew Gertler, senior analyst and counsel at Digital Asset Research. "If we are looking ahead five, 10 years down the road and ethereum is still the platform to run decentralized applications, I would expect the price of ether to be much higher than it is now.'
But he also cautions thus: 'If something made ethereum obsolete, the valuation could be heavily penalized.' And as for the number of cryptocurrencies available, 'more than 800 tokens exist today and many more are on the way.'"
