Weekend Edition: 2018-07-14
As is usually the case when the weekend looms around the corner, cryptocurrency markets tend to do surprising things. This time around, there are some pleasant surprises to take into account. The Ethereum Classic price is an intriguing example of how quickly things can turn around in this industry.
Cryptocurrencies are a very unique creature in the financial world. Their volatility is notorious, but so are the overall unusual market swings. In the case of the Ethereum Classic price, it is evident the positive momentum has materialized out of the blue. As such, it can also disappear in the blink of an eye. Whether or not that will be the case, remains to be determined.
The big question this week is whether or not the cryptocurrency markets will recover or continue to suffer from bearish pressure. So far, it seems as if some minor gains will be noted throughout the day, although Bitcoin is still struggling in this regard. The XRP price, on the other hand, is slowly making its way back to the $ 0.75 mark. A positive trend that may effectively spell positive things to come for other cryptocurrencies.
Stating that cybercrime is on the rise is rather like saying the world is round. Identifying this well-known fact is no longer any great discovery. But understanding the magnitude of the problem and how it affects us as we use the internet is an important starting point.
Earlier this week, the FBI’s Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3) released their 2017 Internet Crime Report. More than 300,000 consumers reported that they were victims of malware and cyber-fraud attacks last year (with registered losses of over $ 1.4 billion combined).
While most cryptocurrencies are still trying to recover from a setback over the weekend, there are always exceptions to keep an eye on. The EOS price, for example, is preparing for another run at $ 20, by the look of things. Thanks to another 6.7% gain over the past 24 hours, the EOS price is certainly successfully bucking the overall bearish trend plaguing the cryptocurrency industry.
