- Ethereum Classic has been withstanding the price levels after a 51% attack through a DAO hack
- The price levels are sustaining above the crucial mark of $5.00 which is a positive sign
- The ETC/BTC pair is performing negatively with an overall loss of -1.12% bringing the current levels to 0.00047561 BTC
If you think ETC is struggling post the cyberattack of 51% through the DAO hack, then the sustainability above the price level of $5.00 and the hold on its ranking might spring a few surprises. Currently, the price levels are $5.11 with the market cap of $594,142,807 and 24-hour volume traded of $688,490,330. Both market capitalization and volume traded are at severe levels when compared to historical data, however, the sustainability over the price level remains the positive point.
The weekly chart indicates, the price levels reflect that after a heavy downtrend movement, ETC is currently under consolidation. However, the consolidation can be treated as a positive sign when compared to the negative fundamentals of the crypto asset currently floating in the market. It faced a heavy downtrend while attempting to cross a minor resistance level of $5.50 and failed miserably. As of now, the ultimate priority is to sustain the price levels with the major support of $4.80 and the aim of increasing security by its developers in which they introduced a 51% attack solution named MESS- Modified Exponential Subjective Scoring. The hard fork of Ethereum is still having an ideal dominance in the market because it is still being accessible on the major crypto exchanges like Binance, Coinbase, Poloniex, etc.
