On its weekly chart, Bitcoin is now 1.5 percent in the red. Monthly losses are pushing a stark 10.6 percent.

Ethereum (ETH) is seeing fractionally more growth, up 2.3 percent on the day to trade at $223 at press time. After a steep price hit Sept. 29 to trade as low as $215, the leading altcoin recovered to push above $235 Sept. 30, before a period of depressed price performance in the days through Oct. 3.

Ethereum’s market cap is around $22.87 billion, sustaining a slight margin ahead of Ripple (XRP), which today has a market cap of $21.3 billion.

On the week, Ethereum’s losses are now at 2.25 percent; on the month, the altcoin is down around 21.5 percent.

Ripple (XRP) is up 1.3 percent to trade at $0.53. Earlier today, Cointelegraph reported that the Ripple-powered consumer payments app “MoneyTap” went live for Japanese users Oct. 3. The new product has been developed together with SBI Holdings, and is initially available for account holders at three major Japanese banks.

Ripple saw unprecedented growth in September, when it briefly outflanked Ethereum to claim the second spot ranking on CoinMarketCap listings. Today, however, Ripple’s weekly chart is almost one percent in the red. On the month, Ripple remains up an impressive 62.6 percent.

In the context of the top twenty, 24-hour growth is more robust, with NEM (XEM) up a strong 4.5 percent on the day. Notwithstanding a dip yesterday, the token has seen strong price performance on its weekly chart.

As investors enjoy a welcome flush of green market-wide, there has similarly been bullish news for the blockchain industry. Technology research firm ReportLinker has suggested that blockchain technology in the U.S. manufacturing sector will grow significantly over the next five years, set to hit over $500 million by 2025.

According to this week’s Diar report, “traditional” venture capital (VC) investment in blockchain and crypto firms has almost tripled in the first three quarters of 2018, with blockchain and crypto-related firms sealing almost $3.9 billion in VC capital.
