Top Cryptocurrencies falls this week
It was a tough end of the week for many of the world's leading digital currencies, as nearly all of the top 10 coins and tokens are down entering into the weekend. Bitcoin has plunged in the past two days, erasing previous gains and falling back to the mid-$6,000s level that has characterized much of the summer so far. Ethereum, though, may be the bigger story; ETH has been falling for weeks with only slight improvements along the way. The second-largest cryptocurrency by market cap is down to just over $218 per token as of this writing, the lowest level that it has been at in months. Other top coins like XRP, bitcoin cash, and EOS have all plummeted along with the biggest names in the market. Tether, linked to the U.S. dollar, has made slight gains over the week, but most of the other tokens remain coupled with bitcoin, falling as the crypto leader does.
