- The cryptocurrency market is sliding down from the recent highs achieved before Christmas.
- Ethereum Classic is the only green coin.
On the cryptocurrency markets, Christmass was not as cheerful as one might expect. All major currencies were withdrawn from recent highs, while the total value of all digital assets in circulation fell to $ 128B at the time of writing from $ 142B on Monday, December 24th. The decline could be triggered by long speculative short-term profit taking, intensified by subtle market conditions.

Ethereum of the moment is the same. Having touched an area greater than $ 160 on Monday, the currency has plummeted below $ 130 to trade at $ 129.42 at the time of writing. Currently, the currency is consolidating losses within the short-term downtrend.
Ethereum Classic it is the only currency out of the top-20 with decent earnings. ETC / USD is changing hands at $ 5.51, which is up 11% from Wednesday. The currency is in 17th place with the current market value of $ 590 million.
