Ether, the troubled coin has not impressed just like the rest of the crypto market and is still $3 billion shy of the XRP market cap. ETH value is above $110 with a trading volume of $1,885,958,499 in the last 24 hours.
Stellar is still the fourth largest crypto by market cap after dethroning the hardfork altcoin, BCH in the past week. XLM price at press time was $0.15 while it posted a market cap that is more than $200 million than that of BCH ($2,914,111,078).
Bitcoin Cash is 7.49% down against the dollar and obviously has not recovered from the hardfork on November 15. Press time value was $154 with a lowly trading volume of $76,753,783 in the last 24 hours.
