Markets Today: Maidsafe Making a Strong Statement


With four cryptos going down and six rising, the day closed at 18:00 GMT on Friday. One particular coin, though, made a statement that should be taken seriously. Read on…


Ethereum the Heartbreaker

As usual, Bitcoin is standing majestically at number one. Today it added more points to be exchanged at $785.04. That’s a climb from Thursday’s 0.32% to 0.46%.

Bitcoin.com_Ripple's Consensus LedgerEthereum continues to break hearts with three consecutive days’ fall. It lost 0.58 percentage points, but at least it was far better than yesterday’s considerable -5.44%. Today the exchange rate was $7.83.

It was a good day for Ripple as it bagged a 1.36% growth rate and sold for $0.006716. That’s commendable, since it slid down 1.23% yesterday.

Fourth-placed Litecoin hit the canvas with 0.17%. The exchanges had it at $3.63.

On the previous listing, Monero gave away 1.10% making it up today with 2.02% gains. You could buy it for $8.49 on the exchanges.

But Wait… Classic Still Kind of Likes You

Interestingly, as Ethereum is going down, its younger brother is going up. Thursday was significant for Ethereum Classic, even though it flourished today as well but just by a meager 0.14 to sell at $1.08.

Maidsafecoin is making a strong statement. Just a while ago the Scottish crypto was laying at number 11, but within a week it has dislodged two coins to overtake the number eight spot. With a terrific four consecutive listings of growth on each day, it has won the day capping 7.96%.

Steem lost its steam from yesterday, tumbling down a colossal 9.88%. Coinmarketcap listed it at $0.171064.

Still, at number 10, Augur was being offered for $2.91 and fell into a deep ditch of -6.10%. It keeps falling and might end up leaving the top 10.
