Ether had an amazing month, having outperformed Bitcoin and the overall market. With a monthly gain of 27.73%, Ether easily recovered its losses from January.

Past 18 months were treacherous for the average crypto investors and many decided to bail out from their initial investments. However, as is the case with every emerging market — and professional investors are aware of it — this is only a test of time. While it may be hard to see it at first glance, the cryptocurrency market continued its development and progress in 2018. More institutions are getting involved, more regulations are being established, market manipulation and Ponzi schemes are in decline (or are being prosecuted), and the short-term “get-rich-quick” investors are shaking out. All factors mentioned above are essential for the cryptocurrency market to establish itself as a global market, making space for future improvements.
