12.50pm update: Ripple is following a bearish trend

NewsBTC wrote: “There was no recovery in Ripple price above the $0.6400 and $0.6500 resistance levels against the US Dollar. The price declined further and it broke a major support at $0.6150.

“It opened the doors for more losses and the price declined below the $0.6000 and $0.5800 support levels.

12.00pm update: A recent survey of American millennials looked to find out how they would invest $10,000 in the crypto-market.

Surprisingly, 9.19 percent of millennials (18-34) would invest their cash in the market, compared to 4 percent of Gen Xers (35-54) and 3 percent of Baby Boomers.

While bitcoin (76 percent) and Ethereum ( 12 percent) proved popular among investors, Ripple managed to convince none of the millennials it is the currency to choose.

Bitcoin has become synonymous with cryptocurrencies so it is no surprise that it scoops up most of the votes, but Ripple surprised many commentators.
