Ethereum (ETH) Price Analysis: Big Drop In Price Expected - Crypto Crimson
Ethereum is one of the biggest names when it comes to the cryptocurrency markets. ETH stands second to Bitcoins and comes with the second largest market cap. Many investors and traders even believe that some day, Ethereum may replace Bitcoin as the numero-uno cryptocurrency. However, for now that doesn't seem likely as Ethereum is caught in a bearish growth. Ethereum, which is currently priced in at $918 is expected to continue on a downward momentum for the next couple of weeks. The currency has been giving mixed reactions over the past few weeks. It was just $100 shy of an all-time high before price began to drop again. Over the past 24 hours, ETH has fallen by about 3% from $950 to $918. Over the past week, the Ethereum price has been on a slow decline. Ethereum fell from a price of $1235 to a low of $779. This has since been on a slow recovery but another strong line resistance stalls Ethereum's efforts to growth. Some market analysts have been very skeptical about the growth of Ethereum and claim that the currency may even fall to a low of $500 in the near future. The graph below explains how this $500 figure came to be.

XRP's Journey to the Top Has Just Begun - Crypto Crimson
Right at the beginning of the Bitcoin Cash hash wars on the 15th of November, we had mused over the possibility of XRP retaining the number 2 spot in terms of market capitalization. With the decline of Bitcoin from $6,300 to $5,500 on that day, we had seen less than $100 Million in market capitalization separate XRP and Ethereum (ETH) in the crypto markets. We had also predicted two scenarios as follows: However, on the 16th of November, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) released a settlement that put all ICOs on notice about issuing unregistered securities. This in turn has affected the value of ETH in the sense that many investors are uncertain about its future. ICOs were seen as the major reason why ETH thrived in the market from early 2017 to mid 2018.

Why the ETF Applications at the SEC Should Include XRP, XLM, NANO, ADA and TRX - Crypto Crimson
The last few days have left a few crypto traders speechless with some having a good time shorting Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH) and other prominent coins on BitMEX. The Bitcoin Cash Hash Wars have been blamed for the decline of Bitcoin (BTC) from values of $6,300 to current levels just above $5,500. This is a drop of 12.6% in period of less than a week. The chances of the American SEC observing the entire debacle from a far are very likely. Especially with 9 pending Bitcoin ETF applications by Direxion (5), GraniteShares (2) and ProShares (2). There is also the CBOE sponsored ETF that everyone was certain would be approved. Their fate now hangs in the balance after the events of this past week.

XRP vs Ethereum (ETH): Which Will be Victorious After the Crypto Market Bloodbath - Crypto Crimson
There is no denying that the King of Crypto is in serious trouble at the moment of writing this. Bitcoin (BTC) has fallen from recently comfortable levels above $6,300 to current levels of $5,500. Many crypto traders had hoped that Bitcoin had bottomed out in September when it hit $6,200 but this event was a tip of the iceberg. Many had hoped that the $5,800 value seen back in June was the lowest value of BTC we would see in 2018. But it appears that there was room for more market turmoil that has been a consequence of the current Hash War between the different factions of the Bitcoin Cash (BCH) community.
