Ethereum already surpassed bitcoin in dollar terms as shown in the total holding of the Celsius community.

Ethereum to overtake Bitcoin in the wider market

Mashinsky added that Ethereum is expected to overtake Bitcoin in the wider market in the next two years, after outperforming Bitcoin in dollars.
