Ethereum Price Forecast: Tough Regulations Favor ETH Over Bitcoin

Ethereum News Update
As the South Korean government backs away from a full-scale ban, investors should be thinking more and more about political risk. How do you protect your crypto investments against sudden shifts in the regulatory landscape?

Ethereum Price Forecast: ETH Gains 12% Despite SEC Setback

Ethereum News Update
Once again, regulators at the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) have rejected applications for Bitcoin-based exchange-traded funds (ETFs), citing volatility as their main concern.

Three different funds submitted proposals for the ETFs. However, all three put distance between the proposed product and the underlying asset, meaning that the ETFs would not hold Bitcoin directly. Instead, the fund would track Bitcoin futures.

One of the firms, Direxion Shares ETF Trust, released a statement on January 8 to explain what happened.

“On a call with the Staff on January 5, 2018, the Staff expressed concerns regarding the.

Could ETH Price Cross $3,000? Ethereum Co-Creator Thinks So!

While everyone was in shock and awe at what appeared to be a cryptocurrency crash (it wasn’t), one digital currency kept on gradually inching higher. And no points for guessing—it was Ethereum.

Always touted as the strongest rival to Bitcoin, Ether has been gaining ground on the back of the attractiveness of the Ethereum platform. Currently, the ETH price is over $1,200, up almost 11%, whereas Bitcoin is still in the red. The digital token, Ether, hit headlines some time ago when it crossed the $1,000 mark.

Ethereum Price Forecast 2018: Can a Bitcoin Crash Hurt ETH Prices?

Analyzing Ethereum’s Potential Amid Fears of Bitcoin Crash in 2018
Ethereum is an offshoot of Bitcoin, so it’s understandable why investors view the two through the same lens. I often see them worrying that Ethereum prices will nosedive in the event of a Bitcoin crash in 2018. With Bitcoin prices near their all-time highs, fears of a Bitcoin crash may be well-founded. But holders of ETH have little to worry about.

Altcoin prices have historically moved in tandem with Bitcoin. Every time Bitcoin generated investor interest,.

Ethereum Price Forecast: ETH Caught in Epic Crypto Retracement

Ethereum News Update
Over the last few weeks, crypto prices looked like the Planet of the Apes, in that they climbed incredibly fast.

However, that (admittedly terrible) analogy came to an end on Thursday night when prices crashed. Almost every single currency of note was affected.

Bitcoin dropped 17% overnight, while Bitcoin Cash fell by an even wider margin, losing more than 30% of its market capitalization. Even IOTA and Cardano, two cryptos that experienced rapid growth in the last month, fell by double-digits.

Ethereum was no exception to this trend.

Ethereum Price Forecast: ETH Has Big Advantage Over “Ethereum Killers”

Ethereum News Update
Although Bitcoin is the father of all cryptos, Ethereum has descendants of its own.

A whole crop of decentralized application blockchains—such as Cardano (ADA), NEM (XEM), and NEO (NEO)—have surfaced as rivals to their forefather, earning them the title of potential “Ethereum killers.”

How does this affect the ETH price?

Cardano skyrocketed 2,163% in under three.
