The volatility in the crypto market has begun as most of the coins are thriving to gain momentum in the past 24-hours. The downfall of Ethereum [ETH] seems to continue for a longer period. The market capitalization gained by XRP appears to be a great barrier for ETH to gain its 2nd position back on the charts.

At the time of writing, Ethereum [ETH] is trading at $175.55 with a market cap of $18.13 billion. The 7-days statistics of ETH still shows a red signal with a 16.68% decline. The 1-day chart depicts an insignificant growth of 1.15%. The coin is being traded on various exchanges such as LBank, BitForex, Huobi etc., with the highest volume of 4.84% from OEX on ETH/BTC trading pairs.
