Ethereum Fails to Reclaim $2,000
Ethereum (ETH) failed to reclaim the much-coveted $2,000 price territory in February despite closing the month with a 1.26% increase. The asset’s performance in February was mainly tied to bitcoin’s (BTC) movement as it sought to weather the bearish storm that prevailed throughout the month. Ethereum started February on a solid note, closing the first day of the month with a 3.55% increase from its opening price of $1,566. Highs and lows characterized the next few days amid massive volatility before ETH slumped to its lowest point of the month at $1,461 on Feb 13th. Later it staged a comeback with a 7.66% intraday gain two days later which resulted in 6-month high of $1,742 but could not sustain its bullish trend for long and finally ended at $1,605 – a 1.26% increase from its opening value .
