Ethereum/Ripple News and Talking Points

- Ethereum continues to make new highs, narrowing the gap with market leader Bitcoin (BTC).

- Ripple’s market capitalization slumps as digital coin loses nearly 30% in the last 24 hours.

Ethereum (ETH) Bucks the Trend as Altcoins Crumble.

Ethereum, the second-largest digital token by market capitalization, stood out amongst a sea of red in the cryptocurrency market, hitting yet another all-time high and narrowing the gap on market heavyweight Bitcoin. The overall market has been weak this week after a wide range of altcoins surged at the start of the year as investors switched into lower priced digital coins. The sell-off comes after warnings that investors were chasing prices higher, putting unrealistic valuations on many of the smaller companies. Ethereum has been rallying hard over the last few weeks and may have much further to go, according to ETH co-creator Steven Nerayoff.
