The market-wide regression has impacted Ethereum as well. Its value has been curtailed to $172 from $180 in the last 24 hours. However, it reflects stable movement after registering a huge decline yesterday. There may not be a quick recovery anytime soon for ETH.

After that, the currency started trading with moderate upside momentum. Recently, it breached the $182 price mark.
ETH coin has made its journey from $150 level to $187 over the last week. Despite early setbacks, it has managed a decent path upwards. However, yesterday’s loss has become one of the worst descents.
