Ethereum (ETH) Price Update
Ethereum began the week on a very bad note. Moving down more than 22%, ETH lost more than $59, touching a low of $198 by the end of the week.
However, the charts began to see some changes following the recent market reverse that was since in BTC within the past 48 hours. As ETH slowly recovers the market losses, it moved up the charts by 7% in the last 24 hours to record its current price of $222. Ethereum still shows major potentials to move further up the charts within the next few days.
Ripple (XRP) Price Update
Ripple, like major altcoins, also dropped drastically in price. Ripple (XRP) struggled on the charts in recent days as the general crypto market fell into great dips. As the market began to recover, ripple, however, remained silent and traded sideways instead.
