Markets are in pain and have not recovered; Only 0x is making progress today.
There has been no notable recovery or bounce following yesterday’s 15 billion dollar dump. Markets have remained low and are just over $200 billion total capitalization at the time of writing.
Bitcoin could not make any further gains and has remained at the level it fell to yesterday; $6,290. Further declines could be on the cards and $6k seems to be the target for another bounce off the bottom. Ethereum has also plummeted but has recovered back to just below $200 where it has held after dropping to $188.
Altcoins are all still in the digital ditch and have made no recovery. The top ten is in a bad state with most cryptos back at their lowest levels for the year. EOS has fared the worst with another 2.6% drop on the day following yesterday’s 9% plunge, it is currently trading at $5.19. XRP and Litecoin have pulled back a percent or two but are still very low.
The top twenty is all red again for the second day with Dash and Tezos falling over 2% and the rest losing around one. Ethereum Classic is in a bad shape with a 4.8% drop today below ten dollars to $9.46. Looking at the bigger scene of the top one hundred reveals that HyperCash and Power Ledger have nosedived a further 10% today following yesterday’s rout.
