ETH Worth 5 Years Ago

According to historical data from Coinmarketcap, five years ago (May 3, 2016), the price of ETH was $7.10 per coin. If you bought the currency for $10, you would have 1.4 ETH.

ETH Worth Today

The price of Ethereum as of May 3rd, 2021 is $3,100 per coin. This is 436 times more than five years ago-an increase of about 43,600%.

If you had bought $10 worth of ETH 5 years ago, here’s how much you would have today.

If you bought $10 worth of Ethereum five years ago, today you would have about $4360 ($10 x 436). It’s not exactly retirement money, but not bad for a $10 buy-in.

Five years ago, $100 worth of Ethereum, if left untouched, would be around $43,600 today.

Five years ago, $1000 worth of Ethereum, if left untouched, would be around $436,000 today, enough to sustain an annual living cost of $36000 for next 12 years.
