The ethereum platform is trading at a new all-time high.
According to a report by CoinDesk, an investment firm, a $3 billion sale of ethereum is scheduled to close in the first quarter of 2019.
It is the largest single transaction in ethereum history and is expected to close by the end of this year.
The price of ethereal tokens, which represent a virtual currency, has increased by more than 200 percent since June.
“It’s been a great run for ethereum, and the price has been high enough that people are willing to pay for the service,” Alex Gebhard, a principal at investment firm BlackRock, told CoinDesk.
A year ago, ethereum was trading at around $2.75 a coin, according to CoinMarketCap.
Bitcoin has lost more than a quarter of its value since it broke out of the correction of the previous year.
