Ethereum has had quite a rough 2018, but it seems not all investors have lost faith in the coin. Many crypto experts believe that as blockchain becomes more widely adopted, the price and reputation of Ethereum will increase accordingly. 

According to Tom Lee, head of research at Fundstrat Global Advisors, Ethereum is about to rally strong, pointing at its recent sharp losses, and stating that the digital currency is well-positioned for a recovery, and Joseph Raczynski, the founder of JoeTechnologist.com and a key blockchain influencer with a Twitter following of 153K, expects the value of Ethereum to hit $1,200 by Q4 2019.

Even though, Ethereum has still ways to go to hit these predictions, it is clear that the bullish sentiment among many crypto investors for Ethereum is still alive and kicking.

For now, Ethereum will have to follow along the wider market. In the short term, however, a position above $130 is crucial if the coin is to rally again soon.
