ETH is continuing its upward trend as the second largest cryptocurrency by market capitalization, and has bounced back since its record high $414 price in mid-June. Back in June is when we saw Ethereum mining explode, resulting in me setting up and continuously upgrading a 60-graphics-card strong Ethereum mine.
