Markets Update: Top Crypto Assets Open 2019 With Slow Month of Trading

08 April 2018 | Posted On International

The leading cryptocurrency markets have seen a slow start to the year, with the top three markets by capitalization shedding between 10% and 37% since early January’s local highs. January has also seen volatility in market cap rankings, with XRP and ETH competing for the second largest crypto asset capitalization, and EOS, USDT, and BCH competing for a position within the top five.

After ending 2018 with a roughly 200% bounce from the all-time lows at the $75 area, BCH/USD has produced a slow start to 2019, slipping 36% from the Jan. 3 local monthly high of $175 to currently trade for approximately $110. When measured from the local top of $240 posted on Dec. 21, BCH has lost nearly 54 percent over the course of six weeks.
