It isn’t all bad news though. Stellar’s XLM is up 4.85 percent, bucking the downward trend the market is currently in. The coin’s $0.263449 price point follows this past Wednesday’s showing of $0.26539, XLM’s highest point since September. This rise follows the recent announcement of a major Stellar Airdrop to the tune of $125M by Blockchain (the company), making it the largest Airdrop in history.

Following an eventful week filled with climbing up, Bitcoin Cash (BCH) is down 2.61 percent. BCH is currently being traded at $573.05, which is still a major win when considering that earlier in the week the coin was being traded at $423.68. The number four currency is set for a hard fork on November 15, which has attracted opportunists who are trying to get in before the post-fork fire sale.
