Electroneum Price Maintains a Status Quo Ahead of MWC 2019

Sundays in the cryptocurrency world are often a bit atypical in every regard. While that is not necessarily a bad thing by any means, one has to keep in mind most of the price charts will look very different in 24 hours from now. For Electroneum price watchers, today seemingly can’t end soon enough. Some minor bearish pressure has formed, albeit it will not necessarily cause any lingering effects.

Electroneum Price Struggles to Reach $0.007
Although this week seemed somewhat positive for Electroneum, most of that momentum got eroded over the weekend. It is not uncommon for altcoins to deal with a retrace of sorts when Friday and subsequent days come around. The losses have been kept to a minimum, for the time being, but it seems the $0.007 level will not be reached anytime soon.

Over the course of today, the Electroneum price has given up nearly 1% in USD value and 0.8% in BTC value. Neither of these losses is worrisome in the slightest, yet it puts a bit of a dampener on this week’s excitement. As such, one ETN is now valued at $0.0066 or 182 Satoshi. Both levels have acted as support all week long, thus it seems unlikely they will be broken.

On social media, there is somewhat of a spam campaign going on involving “IFB” and “ETN”, However, there are also a few normal discussions. ComoChingAZ considers Bill Gates’ recent message of “digital currency is the future of money” as a clear bullish signal for Electroneum. One can always use such messages for their own agenda, after all.
