People are FOMOing with ETH with hope to earn the extra coins of ETC Vision or some sort in the upcoming fork. In my opinion, this is just a pure play of developers in other to push the price higher. I am setting up a lot of Short for the ETH trading since I believe that right after the fork, price will drop like crazy.
ETH has better fundamental than XRP, but XRP was backed with several financial institutions.
Yes, it's back to second place now :D
