Rankings by 24-hour volume: Bitcoin (BTC), Tether (USDT), Ethereum (ETH), XRP (XRP), EOS (EOS), Litecoin (LTC), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Dash (DASH).

The BTC/USD pair appears to have reversed its upwards action and is now continuing the sideways trend we have been witnessing. Reaching USD$6500 is looking to be an achievable long target.

Loan provider Nexo has announced it now accepts XRP as collateral, potentially adding another significant use case to the currency. Enabling XRP holders to borrow against their holdings instead of selling may make it easier to hold XRP for investment purposes and easy the currencies selling pressure.

The top 24-hour gainer in marketcap for the top 100 coins is Stratis (STRAT) rising 17.56% while the top loser is Bitcoin Diamond (BCD) dropping 7.38%.
