Ethereum Surges Overnight To $205, Market Still Below $200 Billion



In the latest crypto news, it’s important to note that the market recorded a new surge from Ethereum overnight, leading ETH to a price of $224, after which it corrected to $205, which is the price at which the second largest cryptocurrency by market cap is trading today.

In only 48 hours, the price of ETH climbed from $168 to $224, which is around 33% in percents. While ETH has retraced to $215, the second most valuable cryptocurrency is now trading at $205 which is still not enough for the market to break the psychologically important barrier of $200 billion.

So far, we can conclude that ETH’s rally has initiated an upside movement. Still, investors are optimistic that the valuation of the cryptocurrency market can potentially recover beyond the $200 billion mark over the next couple of days.

As Alex Kruger, a popular economist and cryptocurrency analyst, explained:

“Direction of ETHUSD depends on BTCUSD. If BTC breaks $6,400 next levels are $6,600 – $6,650 and $6,850. ETH would break up much harder. Temporarily. Then expect selloff to resume, BTC to break the year lows, hellfire among alts, and ETH weaker than competing tokens. That’s my view at the moment.”

Tokens like Nano, Tezos, Kyber Network, BAT, Tron, 0x, ICON and Ontology have all started recording decent gains against Bitcoin in the 5% to 20% range. The largest cryptocurrency by market cap, Bitcoin, is also positive in terms of growth today – coming closer and closer to its important $6,500 mark while trading at $6,460.

What Made The Price Of Ripple (XRP) To Rise Up To 100% In A Week?

Ripple was in almost every post in past week's crypto news, mostly because of its meteoric rise which pushed the cryptocurrency up 100% in only a week. The supernormal rally even put Ripple to the second position, overcoming Ethereum and its silver spot for a matter of hours.If we take in the numbers between the minimum and maximum price of Ripple, the difference is around $19.8 billion - showing that Ripple surged by 184% before the price got corrected. However, the market cap of Ripple went above the market cap of Ethereum and XRP was for a short time the new silver to Bitcoin's gold.However, the main question that everyone has right now is the following...How the altcoin Ripple (XRP) managed to double its price in less than a week?The first factor is obviously the launch of the xRapid solution, which came after long anticipation and was meant for a commercial launch as soon as next month. The payment service allows financial institutions to use the XRP tokens for conducting cross-border transactions.The second factor was the announcement from Coil and PNC. According to it, XRP has linked with the biggest names in the online world such as Wikipedia, Twitch, YouTube and other, with an aim to reward their users directly in XRP.The final factor, according to us, was the fear of missing out (FOMO) which catapulted Ripple's price - solely because everyone believed that 'now is the right time to invest in XRP'. This is what finalized the bullish transformation and pushed Ripple up.

Novogratz Called A Bottom On Bitcoin: “It’s Now Impossible Not To Hit $10k By 2019”

In the latest cryptocurrency expert analysis, we have the long-time Bitcoin bull, Mike Novogratz, who was recently a guest on the CNBC Fast Money show, where he once again remained optimistic about the largest cryptocurrency - Bitcoin - and its future.However, it is weird not to mention the fact that Novogratz is always shifting his attitude and opinions by lowering the price margin which he sees as 'realistic price points' for BTC in a certain timeframe.In the latest episode of the CNBC Fast Money show, Novogratz said that a 30% rally by the end of the year is quite realistic. According to him, Bitcoin is at its bottom right now and should only grow as the end of the year approaches. former hedge fund manager also explained that he makes his forecasts solely by reading technical indicators - particularly this one about Bitcoin being at 'it's bottom' and the probability of it to rise up to $10k by the end of the year.Novogratz also explained that there has been a significant amount of closed-door deals, such as Telegram's $1.7 billion private ICO which alludes to the fact that institutions are entering the crypto markets - even though they are doing this quietly.As he stated:
“It’s also a bull market in institutions building the infrastructure needed for real money investors to start investing in this space… I think that in three to six months from now, there will be an “all clear” sign for people — big institutions and pension [funds] — to start investing.”
To sum up his guest appearance on CNBC, Novogratz referenced a tweet he made in early August in which he explained that Bitcoin will likely outperform altcoins for the time being - as institutions are still 'in love' with the flagship cryptocurrency. This is why "Bitcoin is the easiest crypto asset to scale into," according to Novogratz.

BREAKING: Ripple (XRP) Surges 44% In One Day, Adding $2 Billion To The Table

Over the past 24 hours, there is a lot of green and positive movements in the latest cryptocurrency news. And while Bitcoin remains stable in the $6,600 region after it recorded a solid growth, Ethereum follows at $225. However, one of the most shocking surges was the one recorded by XRP, the token of the native cryptocurrency Ripple.With a rise of 44,73%, Ripple is now standing at $0.471, which is almost a double from its price a couple of days ago. According to analysts, this abrupt increase in the price of Ripple was not triggered by a specific series of events.Rather, XRP rose because of the oversold conditions throughout July and August. Even though the price of Ripple was around $0.54 on June 21st, it dropped to $0.29 within two months, by a rough 46%.It now seems that XRP is regaining its power. The social media activity judging by the keywords XRP and Ripple also increased, possibly because of Ripple's announcement of a new cryptocurrency product by October this year.However, we can also say that RippleNet, the blockchain platform behind Ripple, is taking over the crypto news lately. With big clients such as banks, it is stealing the show and establishing a solid presence for itself online.All of these combinations led to Ripple stabilizing and coming closer to the $0.5 mark, just like Bitcoin and the much-needed $7,000 price breakout.
