Ethereum Battered on ICO Regulation and Ad Ban


When crypto markets plunge towards another monthly low some assets will fare better than others. As usual big daddy Bitcoin has led the way and when it shed 14% over night the outlook for all others appeared grimmer. Ethereum has fared badly this time falling harder and faster than usual.

Ethereum, which usually fares well during major downturns, has taken a particularly painful slide over the past couple of days. This could well be a result of the ICO and crypto advertising bans by internet monopolies Facebook and Google. ETH has also become the second cryptocurrency of choice for trading altcoins after Bitcoin so when panic selling on altcoins overwhelms the markets, Ethereum will suffer.

Ethereum ICO Boost Slows

Ethereum has been the platform of choice for the majority of ICOs over the past year. When they are heavily regulated Ethereum takes a beating, likewise if avenues of advertising are closed off to startups looking for exposure for their blockchain projects. ICOs have come under heavy scrutiny from regulators across the globe, principally due to their methods of raising capital.
