While major cryptocurrencies remain stable, this does not take away from the steady downward movement which has resulted in majority of digital instruments being back to their Nov 17 values. At the present, the digital currencies have reached their first double digits during the last month. Ethereum is at $490 (up by 16%), Ripple at $0.56 (up by 14.46%) and Dash at $341.52 (up by 13.06%)
