Ethereum is the second largest cryptocurrency by market cap. Many investors consider it Bitcoin’s direct competitor. However, Ethereum’s price is nowhere as volatile as Bitcoin. Therefore, Ethereum is less likely to be driving up in a bubble. It also might carry less crash risk as of today.
The Ethereum market started Tuesday off on a bullish momentum, testing the $484 level once again.
The pivot levels are set at 23% and 38% Fibonacci retracement levels of $407 and $361 respectively.
Meanwhile, a confirmation of a break above $484 could open doors for further gains for ETH/USD towards new highs in the $562 area.
The Ethereum market continues to move above the daily Ichimoku cloud.
UBS to Launch Live Ethereum Platform
On the corporate side, some of the largest banks in the world have revealed a pilot designed to simplify compliance using Ethereum.
The project was born out of UBS’ London-based fintech laboratory. Now they have help from Barclays, Credit Suisse, KBC, SIX and Thomson Reuters.

The platform is called the Massive Autonomous Distributed Reconciliation, AKA Madrec. It is designed to make it easier for banks to reconcile a large amount of data about their counterparties.
The Madrec pilot is currently in a mock-live environment using 22,000 non-sensitive reference attributes for cash equity issuers.
The new initiative is set to bring data from Switzerland’s and Europe’s biggest banks into line ahead of the second varnish of MiFID, which comes into effect in January.
Fake MyEtherWallet Hits Apple’s App Store
But it’s not all sunshine and rainbows for the Ethereum market players.
According to Mashable, a fake version of popular wallet for Ethereum, called MyEtherWallet, is currently being sold in Apple’s App Store.
The app is created by a developer called Nam Le, with no ties to the makers of the original MyEtherWallet. The original version currently exists only as a browser app.
So if you’re into Ethereum investing, keep your coins safe and do your research before moving your assets from one wallet to another.
