Price Patterns to Monitor
None of the coins had surprising moves, in the sense that the prices fluctuated within the typical range they have been fluctuating between over the past few weeks. Traders may also wish to bear in mind the following events going on regarding current price patterns:
- Currencies without a clear trend over the past two weeks are Bitcoin and Ethereum. If you prefer choppy, rangebound markets, they might be up your alley.
- If you’re looking for coins clearly heading down, look no further than XRP, Bitcoin Cash, and Litecoin.
What Does Transaction Data Tell Us?
Ripple recorded 1,122,023 transactions on its blockchain over the past 24 hours; that’s the best of the bunch, and about 97% over Ethereum, which had the second most transactions recorded on its chain. Ripple’s transaction fee is less than Ethereum’s transaction fee; in and of itself, this may imply transaction fees might be a key reason why users are preferring Ripple. Over the past 24 hours, the largest transaction across all blockchains occurred on Bitcoin, coming in at a value of $107,815,056 US dollars.
