Ethereum Hash Rate Drops to the Lowest in 13 Months but BTC and ETH Addresses Saw Increases


The 3rd largest cryptocurrency by market cap of $11 billion, Ethereum has been down about 2 percent in the past 24-hours at $105 as per the data provided by Coinmarketcap. In the BTC market as well, it is currently in the red by 0.61 percent. Meanwhile, it is managing the daily trading volume of $3 billion.

Ethereum is fast approaching $100 and if bear market persists which crypto traders and analysts are expecting it to, Ether can hit its December low of $83.35 (on Dec 15, 2018).

Economist and crypto trader, Alex Kruger sees no signs of bulls at all in the market,

“There's absolutely nothing bullish neither technically nor fundamentally for bitcoin and the main crypto assets. Bitcoin broke support overnight and has shown no signs of exhaustion. Charts are decidedly bearish. Longs = scalping against the trend.”

He further shared ETH going below $100 will be bringing more volatility as “stops get run over.”
