Ethereum can't quite steal the moves as Bitcoin price kills the groove

IT isn’t exactly murder on the dancefloor, but there certainly don’t seem to be many people feeling the groove at the moment.

The price of Bitcoin has drifted slightly closer to $65k this morning, down almost 1% since this time yesterday. 

To paraphrase a Sophie Ellis Bextor song that absolutely no one in the world will have heard, ‘everything looks restless underneath the surface’. But which way is next?

Things at least looked a little brighter for Ethereum, which is up 2% in 24 hours and holding tidily above the $3,500 mark this morning. 

It received a boost yesterday with news after it was announced the Securities and Exchange Commission has closed its "Ethereum 2.0" investigation and would not seek "to regulate ETH as a security”, after Consensys sued the regulator in April over perceived attempts to regulate it despite statements that ETH is not a security, and not within the SEC’s statutory jurisdiction.
