Latest Ethereum (ETH) news and prices
For ethereum’s critics in the bitcoin community, last month brought a “gotcha” moment.
Joseph Lubin, co-founder of the second-largest cryptocurrency by market cap, acknowledged onstage at Ethereal Tel Aviv that the network, in its original form, wasn’t built for mass adoption. “We knew it wasn’t going to be scalable for sure,” the ConsenSys CEO said.
Predictable cries of “scam” from ardent bitcoiners followed. But Lubin’s statement wasn’t scandalous in the least to the ethereum fans at Devcon – the community’s largest and most influential annual gathering – where roughly 3,000 attendees gathered this week in Osaka, Japan.
Even those who knew the first version wasn’t scalable don’t see early marketing claims as misleading. They see iteration as an inherent process.

Latest Ripple (XRP) news and prices
Yesterday, there was a strong upward move in ripple price above the $0.2650 resistance against the US Dollar. XRP price even broke the $0.2720 and $0.2750 resistance levels. Moreover, there was a break above the $0.2800 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. Finally, the price tested the $0.2850 resistance area, where the bears took a stand. A high was formed at $0.2855 and recently the price started a downside correction.
It broke the $0.2800 and $0.2750 support levels. However, the $0.2720 area acted as a decent support. A low was formed near $0.2710 and the price is currently consolidating. It traded above the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $0.2855 high to $0.2710 low. However, it seems like the $0.2800 level is now acting as a solid barrier.

Bitcoin Cash (BCH) proponents have recently been discussing the amount of value participants have been sending onchain.

With extremely low network fees, a good portion of people are choosing to move funds onchain with the Bitcoin Cash network.

Tether (USDT) news and prices
A new complaint accuses the owners and companies behind the Tether cryptocurrency of market manipulation. The accusations claim that Tether is the main culprit for “the largest bubble in financial history,” with over $265 billion worth of cryptocurrencies disappearing from the market.
A handful of investors filed the complaint in the U.S District Court for the Southern District of New York. According to investors who made the accusations Tether, despite being a stablecoin, successfully manipulated Bitcoin’s price. Furthermore, Tether organization is also owning the Bitfinex crypto exchange, meaning that the companies behind the exchange can place Bitcoin buy orders with unbacked by fiat Tether tokens.
Tether is supposed to be fully fiat-backed, but Tether owners implied that they could use other forms of assets to support Tether’s price. Unbacked buy orders can push trading volumes and “pump up” Bitcoin’s price.
