Ethereum, the second-largest cryptocurrency with the current market capitalization of $23.8 billion, settled above $220.00 amid global recovery on the cryptocurrency market. ETH/USD has gained over 4% of its value in recent 24 hours and lost 1.5% since the beginning of Friday. By the time of writing, the coin is changing hands at $222.50.

Ripple has dived massively from the recent highs. The breakout above both the 50 Simple Moving Average (SMA) 1-D and the 100 SMA 1-D propelled XRP past critical hurdles. For the first in 2019, the price exchanged hands above $0.5. A high was, however, formed at $0.50 before the bears took over.

Following the rejection from June highs, Ripple has continued to press against key support levels. Moreover, the declines could not find support at $0.4 and $0.38 key levels while the drop below moving averages encouraged the sellers to increase their grip on the price.

The cryptocurrency markets have begun to rally once again with Litecoin (LTC) leading the charge for the top 10 cryptocurrencies, as per data from CoinMarketCap.

After enduring a week of losses, bitcoin jumped by $1,000 within an astonishing thirty minutes yesterday, prompting gains from the altcoin market. However, Litecoin was the clear winner, rising by a whopping 13%.

At the time of writing, Litecoin is trading at $98.98, however, at one stage the altcoin spiked to as much as $100 per token.

Although Bitcoin.com CEO Roger Ver left the Bitcoin community to help establish Bitcoin Cash, he still considers himself a Bitcoin maximalist. His preferred vision of Bitcoin has larger blocks and smaller fees, all to ensure that the cryptocurrency becomes one thing: electronic cash.

EOS price is slowly recovering and it recently broke the $3.900 and $4.000 resistance levels. However, there is a strong resistance forming near the $4.200 level, where the bulls might face a tough challenge in the near term. A successful break above $4.200 could push the price towards the $4.500 level.

Binance Coin has jumped to 6 according to the latest data on coinmarketcap. The price of BNB is at $29.01, after it ascended by 3.86%. The trading volume recorded is $690.022 million in the course of the past 24-hours. The total market cap of Binance is $4.512 billion.

A month ago, reports had pointed to Binance being the biggest gainer of the year. However, even as analysts keep proclaiming that crypto-winter had ended, Bitcoin has pulled back a few times during the past few weeks. The value has failed to reach $15,000 so far.
