Market Review. Results of the Day. Falling of Interest
April 2, 2018
Nothing has changed in the cryptocurrency market over the weekend. Bitcoin was trading in the range of $6,000-7,000. Ethereum was in the range of $370-410.
Volatility of the market is declining, and trading volumes are at the lowest levels since the beginning of the year.

According to a study conducted by a cloud platform intY, in which participated about 2,000 citizens of the United Kingdom, 36% of respondents are not familiar with the term "cryptocurrency". Moreover, 41% of respondents believe that blockchain is the second name of the toilet tank with a pull chain.
New mining rules for Ethereum are coming, rewards for finding a new block to be reduced from 3 to 0.6 ETH.
Apparently, in the process of large-scale renovation of Ethereum, the award of miners will be reduced from 3 to 0.6 ETH.
John McAfee claimed that Ethereum in indispensable for the cryptocurrency industry.
He also noted a strange connection and tweeted:
"Here's what I find funny: Ethereum is trashed more than any currency, and yet no currency is more necessary and central due to It's smart contract platform that is used by more than 50% of all new altcoins. It's like everyone values water, but not the containers it is carried in."
