Over the past 7 days Bitcoin is down -14%. Ripple cratered -34%, while Ethereum was the big winner +32%.

A pending crackdown in South Korea and a gentle warning from U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin are now in the mix with cryptocurrencies. In addition, Ripple’s test partnership with Moneygram was big news. Do not forget Kodak is exploding higher (NYSE:KODK) following its decision to offer its own coin.
