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.

TRON Partnership Involves Cloud Computing
It has been almost an entire week since Justin Sun, the founder of TRON (TRX), announced a new big partnership for this cryptocurrency. His Twitter announcement did not provide a lot of information, except for the fact that the TRON partnership is with an industry giant worth tens of billions of dollars.

Even so, the entire crypto community started speculating about the new partner’s identity. Soon after the announcement, a new rumor emerged, claiming that the identity of an unnamed corporation was uncovered. According to the rumor, TRON’s new partner is none other than Baidu, one of the largest tech giants of China, which also represents this country’s largest internet search provider.
Baidu is often viewed as China’s version of Google, and if the rumors of a partnership with this company turn out to be true, this will be a big game-changer for TRON.
However, in days following the announcement, new reports started coming in with claims that the partnership will not revolve around blockchain technology. Instead, ODaily reported that the alleged partnership between TRON and Baidu will be focused on cloud computing. The report claims that TRON will be purchasing computing resources from Baidu.
Will Ripple (XRP) advocacy hike affect bitcoin dominance of China?
Currently, China is leading in Bitcoin mining industry by far, second to none for bitcoin mining power. Literally, it’s contributing over 70% of the network’s hash rate (a term that is used in describing the total processing power of a blockchain network). But how Ripple fits in here and what it has to do with that? We’ll talk about that a bit later below, let’s cover some in-depth facts about China’s dominance over Bitcoin first.
It’s a near-complete dominance by China on the BTC mining grid that has made it responsible for mining a majority of circulating bitcoins. A Beijing-based company, Bitmain Technologies, is highly responsible for extracting the significant part – more than half of the globe’s bitcoin, and alone, it has approached 50% of the total hash rate more than once.
The fact that China is controlling a majority of Bitcoin hash rate, clearly tells that it has the power of manipulating or merely destroy the bitcoin network if it gets enough support should it decide to take such a move. Therefore, this has led to serious concerns among countries including the US that China might get an edge in this cryptocurrency industry and possibly becoming a potential threat.
China is the biggest manufacturer of Bitcoin as well as cryptocurrency mining equipment. The reason behind the massive growth of mining farms in the country is because of cheap electricity bills.
Furthermore, the country has adopted several…
Ravencoin (RVN) Surges Following Binance Listing
While most cryptocurrencies today still remain unstable and at the edge of falling into the red, there are some coins that are doing significantly better. One such coin is Ravencoin (RVN), which has surged by over 26% in the last 24 hours.
Ravencoin came to be as a hard fork of Bitcoin and was inspired by a popular book series-turned-television programme, Game of Thrones. The coin’s developers decided to make Ravencoin an open-source project that provides users with the ability to declare assets on their platform. The platform itself is decentralized, transparent, and secure.
Just as Game of Thrones’ ravens are used for spreading the news and truth, Ravencoin hopes to become a carrier of truth regarding the ownership of assets on the blockchain.
Ravencoin’s main use case is for performing P2P transfers, while it prioritizes security, autonomy, user privacy, and control. Additionally, as a coin fighting for truth and transparency, it also stands against censorship.
Ravencoin got listed on Binance prior to MainNet launch
Following the last week’s announcement that Ravencoin is getting officially listed on Binance, the world’s largest cryptocurrency exchange ba trading volume, Ravencoin experienced a large price surge. At one point, the surge took the coin’s value up by over 31%. At the time of writing, however, the coin is still growing, with an increase of 26.15% in the last 24 hours.
Getting listed on Binance has brought Ravencoin to the top…
