Ethereum (ETH) is the second-largest cryptocurrency after Bitcoin (BTC) in terms of market capitalization. The cryptocurrency was released on July 30, 2015, with Vitalik Buterin and Gavin Wood as its original authors.

Assuming an investor purchased $1,000 worth of ETH on Dec.23, 2016, they would have picked up 122.55 units priced at $8.16 approximately.

Fast-forward just three years to Jan. 13, 2018, when ETH hit its all-time high of 1,432.88 and that $1000 investment would have turned into $1.67 million.

Five years later to press-time and the $1,000 would be worth $486.812.72. The returns may not be as impressive, as those in 2018, but it is still a whopping 48,580% gain.

Even for the earliest of ETH investors, the cryptocurrency has unleashed a bonanza returning 21,971.12%. The earliest known price for ETH is $2.77, recorded on Aug. 7, 2015.

Bitcoin (BTC) and other cryptocurrencies have proved to be some of the most volatile assets over the years, keeping many veteran investors skeptical. Yet, believers who have been holding (“or holding,” as the cryptocurrency community refers to it) the decentralized virtual currency since early or even mid-stages have seen handsome gains.

The subsequent market correction was just as enthusiastically dubbed the burst of the bubble. Does that mean that the people who invested ahead of the bull run, but didn’t divest at the time suffered major losses?

Five years from Monday, Bitcoin closed at $973.37 in Dec 2016, meaning a $1,000 investment at the time would have gotten an investor 1.03 BTC.

After one years later, on December 15, the leading cryptocurrency hit an all-time high of $20,089. This means the $1,000 invested in 2016 would be worth about $48.800, giving a whopping 4780% returns for those who divested at the time.
