Ethereum trading volume passes Bitcoin

After reaching as low as $175 yesterday, Ethereum climbed back this morning, nearing the $200 mark. The Ethereum market was very active yesterday, leading all currencies in the trading volume category, with more than $1.3 billion in Ether changing hands.

Bitcoin continues bearish trend

After falling below the $2,500 mark yesterday, Bitcoin continued to tumble, falling below $2,300 before recovering slightly. At the same time, there was more bad news for the Bitcoin community yesterday, as a test run of the proposed SegWit2x scaling solution created a hard fork on the test blockchain. The test raised concerns that a hard fork might also be created if the solution is deployed on the real Bitcoin network.
