Bitconnect: I sold what I had yesterday and I don't plan on buying etc anytime soon
angel: The amount of hash power needed to execute a 51% attack on ETC is surprisingly small. It does not take much money to rent enough hash power to achieve this, especially when they are highly efficient ASICs
angel: I'm still holding my 50 etc but idk..
Bitconnect: I mean, how much lower can it go
ETH overtook XRP for second total Market Capitalization
Some reference charts I've found on reddit. Pretty interesting https://bitinfocharts.com/cryptocurrency-charts.html
