Ethereum, ranked as the 17th-best currency in the global coin ranking list, divided the Ethereum community once it was forked out of Ethereum’s first major system update. For quite some time after the initial fork, Ethereum Classic was doing more than well with also having been ranked as one of the top 20 coins, however, it soon started to drop against the dollar, while collecting only 1.3% of gains in the last two months. Now, we can see ETC clearly progressing in the last 30 days, even though it had adopted the latest trend of trading in the red, as the majority of coins is dropping in the last 3 days. Let’s see how well Ethereum Classic did, as well as find out more about the latest updates made by ETC dev team.
Ethereum Classic in the Last 30 Days
Although ETC has risen not more than 1.3% in the last two months, which is considered to be a pretty weak set of gains in the period of 60 days, we can now see Ethereum Classic under the more positive light.
Apparently, Ethereum Classic has had a major rebound as it was trading up during the most of April, which was pretty easy on the majority of currencies. April came as a perfect time for bouncing off, as February and March went pretty tough on the crypto market, dictating frequent drops and setting up the trend of trading in the red.
That is how ETC has made an amazing improvement when it comes to its market value, during the course of 30 days. During April, ETC has made it with acquiring 71% of gains in the course of 4 weeks, which helped Ethereum Classic adopt a pretty smooth rebound rate.
During the course of the last two weeks, ETC has gone up against the dollar for 13% up while it gained 7.3% against the dollar during the last week, which was also considered to be pretty benevolent for the sake of the total market cap of all cryptos put together.
Now, that the majority of coins are going down with the latest market trend where a great portion of currencies is being traded in the red, unfortunately, Ethereum Classic is following upon with the trend as well, unable to stay immune.
That is how ETC is currently dropping, although it is not going down below the value of 20$ per one unit. At least not yet.
Ethereum Classic and Emerald Wallet
Emerald Wallet came as refreshment to the ETC community, also marking a new beginning for ETC that finally started off on the right foot after having its price dropping for a prolonged time in February and March.
Emerald Wallet has been released with new features and updates that made it more functional, also creating a safe and secure environment that is made to be operational even in the offline mode.
With this update, it is more than obvious that Ethereum Classic is ready to move on, and it is paying off already, as it is considered that Emerald Wallet along with the latest improvements is one of the main reasons why Ethereum Classic managed to get back on the track.
Besides from making the wallet into a more functional environment, the team has also been experimenting with improving the ETC network by working with side chains, so it is expected to see some improvements on the network as well.
Further on the matter of improvements, it was talked about how Ethereum Classic and Ethereum can work together, instead of having their communities grow separately in despise towards the opposite side.
The topic was initiated by Ethereum’s Vitalik Buterin and Anthony Lusardi, who is a crucial part of Ethereum Classic team.
The mentioned topic came off as the ignition for having many of ETH and ETC holders thinking that the two coins will soon be merged together. However, there are no confirmations, or negations, on this matter.
How is Ethereum Classic doing at the Current Moment?
ETC has been doing great for the past 30 days as it has managed to collect the set of gains of 71% against the dollar. However, now that the market trend has changed with the majority of currencies going down in the market while trading in the red, ETC couldn’t stay immune.
That means that after some time spent trading in the green, Ethereum Classic is now dropping against the dollar, however, the noted drop is considered to be only a minor negative change.
After the latest change in the market, Ethereum Classic is going down against the dollar by -1.27%, while it is also dropping against Bitcoin by -1.91% against this digital value.
Following the latest change, Ethereum Classic can now be traded at the price of 23.44$, which is still a pretty good price for ETC since the latest change didn’t take it go down below the value of 20$ per one ETC unit.

Reasons Why 2019 May Be A Great Year For Crypto
The new year was always considered to be a time of new beginnings, where people can reflect on the past and learn from their mistakes in order to be better in the future. The same is true for the world of crypto, and investors around the world are hoping for 2019 to be better, more profitable, and to have more success than 2018.
The hope for the future is even more important when we consider all the negative development in 2018. There were numerous high-profile hacking attacks, two market crashes, with a strong bear market in between. Not to mention that some of the biggest projects that may have brightened the year a bit ended up being delayed.
With that in mind, it is understandable why investors are looking forward to the new year and all the potential development that it may bring. In fact, there are several reasons why they should be excited about 2019.
1) Bearish market to loosen its grip
The first reason why 2019 can be a good year digital currencies is that it may finally break free of the bearish grip that has been felt ever since last January. Following the first market crash, the bears settled in, and the prices kept falling for an entire year. The market attempted to shake off the negativity on several occasions, with the biggest one being…
3 Coins with the Largest Potential in 2019
2018 has been a pretty bad year for digital coins, and after the initial market crash that occurred a year ago, everyone was expecting a bull run that will fix things. Obviously, it never arrived, and instead of that, all that crypto market experienced was an entire bearish year and another crash in mid-November.
Now, however, it is a brand new year, and attempts to shake off the bears’ grip can be seen even in these first two weeks. The market is still struggling and mostly losing value, rather than gaining, with most coins being in trouble once more. Still, a lot can happen in a year, and most investors remain optimistic regarding 2019. Here are some of the coins that are believed to have tremendous potential, and to be the hope of this year.
Of course, Bitcoin comes first. This is the first cryptocurrency which is still dominating the market, with no other coin being even close to its market cap or price. BTC is the coin that has reached the most prominent heights, and it also lost the most in the previous year. However, there is still hope, as there are several projects and events scheduled for this year that might turn things around for the number one coin.
One thing that is expected is the approval of Bitcoin ETFs…
Do or Die: 3 Crypto Projects that Really Need to Deliver Soon
Crypto projects have gone through several crucial periods of development, and while it is fascinating to watch their progress to maturity, a lot of investors are becoming impatient. During the first few years, they were barely known, only talked about in specific groups, among those developers and investors who had the luck to find out about them in the early days.
The next several years, altcoins started appearing, and the voice of cryptocurrency slowly started to spread. Then, there was a period of hype, when crypto exploded, and the entire world finally learned about this new technology that promised to change the world. Naturally, the overhype led to a market crash and price correction that we experienced last year, but the impact was made, and the world is still talking about them on a daily basis.
However, now is the time for cryptos to deliver on their promise, grow up, and start showing results. There are high expectations for many projects, but for various reasons, they have yet to deliver, and many are hoping that 2019 will be the year when they finally do it. Let’s see which 3 crypto projects really need to show results, and soon.
1) Ethereum (ETH)
Are you surprised to see Ethereum at the first spot? The project has been a top cryptocurrency for years, why would it be in danger now?…
