Reasons for the fall
The price of Ethereum has seen a shocking erosion due to a number of reasons, one of which is the fake ICO on the Ethereum blockchain.
Ethereum's blockchain is extremely well known and widely used. But the more people know you, the more vulnerable you are to attack.
A lot of fake encryption projects were run on the Ethereum network, which negatively impacted its market valuation.
Beyond that, the low rate of Initial Coin Offerings and the tightening of the regulations surrounding them have led to a decline in the value of Ethereum.
Even the fact that Ethereum lost against Ripple in the race for success did not do well. Investors who start losing confidence and sell their Ether tokens.
This has fueled the collapse of the price of Ethereum in the market.
With the current market downturn, even miners have given up their mining operations, as it is no longer profitable.
