Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum, Ripple: Prices, Charts and Analysis

  • Bitcoin Cash (BCH) surges on hard fork news.
  • Ripple (XRP) positive news boosts price higher.

Cryptocurrency Market Showing Signs of Life

The cryptocurrency market expanded by around 8% over the week, due mainly to rallies in Bitcoin Cash and Ripple who both received positive news. Overall market turnover increase, albeit from low levels, and most of the major tokens now trade above their 20- and 50-day moving averages, a positive market set-up.

Bitcoin Cash (BCH) rose around 50% over the week as two large cryptocurrency exchanges said that they would adopt the upcoming BCH hardfork, due on November 15. Both Coinbase and Binance say that will support the fork, boosting BCH sharply higher.

Ripple (XRP) also rallied over the week on news that the company is looking to expand in the UAE and that Canadian exchange CoinField will begin XRP pair trading. News that cross-border payment system SWIFT was attracting the ire of the US over their dealings with Iranian banks also gave XRP a leg-up.
