Yesterday (April 29), on crypto exchange Bitstamp, around 12:50 UTC, the Ethereum ($ETH) price broke $2,800 for the first time, establishing a new all-time high — $2,800.89 — one minute later.

Currently (as of 09:15 UTC on April 30), Ethereum is trading around $2,793.66, which means that it is up 1.27% in the past 24-hour period; as for the year-to-date period, ETH-USD is up 278.96$.

Davis also commented on the fact that Ethereum transaction costs have almost become downright affordable recently:
