“ETH has lost its recent gains and is once again hovering near the major support level of $1,530 (roughly Rs. 1.27 lakh) to $1,550 (roughly Rs. 1.29 lakh). As long as BTC holds above $28,000 (roughly Rs. 23 lakh), it's considered a positive sign for the overall market,” the CoinDCX research team told Gadgets360.
