Zcash and VeChain are both dropping 4 – 5 percent on the day and Tron losing over 2%. Only Ethereum Classic is in the green in the top twenty with a 1% push to $9.21.
A new entry to the top one hundred is making the fomo pump today and that is Etheera. Climbing 11% this Swiss based real estate token has made it to 79th spot. Up even more Sirin Labs Token jumping 18% but these are likely to dump as quick as they have pumped in the next few days.
