Bitcoin Holds at $2,500 levelbr>
After a brief morning scare that saw one exchange posting price numbers reflecting a bitcoin crash, things were mostly quiet today. Bitcoin held steady on the $2,500 per single coin price level for the third straight day.
Ethereum reflected its continued growing pains, dipping down below $300 after rising as high as $314 on Thursday. It continues to be plagued by a lack of confidence in its scaling, as recent initial coin offerings using the platform have been sluggish.
Litecoin, Ripple XRP, and Monero were all down a fraction, with Dash up slightly to $181.
