Grayscale, A trusted market insight provider on digital currency, wrote, “Ethereum is like New York City: it is vast, expensive, and congested in certain areas. However, it also features the richest application ecosystem,”
Grayscale has issued a report on smart contract platforms in which it compares the Ethereum (ETH) blockchain to the best and worst parts of New York City.
The report analyses the pioneer of smart contract network Ethereum in comparison to newer competing blockchains such as Solana (SOL), Polkadot (DOT), Avalanche (AVAX), Cardano (ADA) and Stellar (XLM). The report comes in the wake of the firm launching a crypto fund dedicated to smart contract platforms excluding Ethereum.
XRP: XRP is currently trading at $0.8653, which is a price increase of 0.24% over 24 hours and 3.69% over the last seven days.
The XRP price has been ranging inside the ‘ascending triangle’ for more than a month on the daily time frame. Currently, the price is near the lower trend line of the triangle, which also overlaps with the critical 200-EMA at $0.84 on the 28th.
However, the buying pressure seems to be less to break the upper boundary of the ascending triangle. Since Monday, this can be seen; the price remains pressured below $0.90.
Litecoin: LTC is currently trading at $130.25, which is a price increase of 1.11% and 6.73% in 24 hours and over the past seven days, respectively.
Nikkei, a Japan-based news agency, informed that the Japan Virtual and Crypto Assets Exchange Association (JVCEA) would be releasing a “green list” of 18 cryptocurrencies that will be free from being screened every time an exchange lists them. Apart from Bitcoin, Ethereum, and a few other cryptocurrencies, Litecoin is also included in the list. Despite losing ground in terms of popularity and market cap, LTC remains a preferred asset to date.
