Bitcoin Cash kept up with the pace of the BTC bull and traded up as much as 10% to the $870 mark before easing back slightly to register $850 at press time. Ethereum was also up by around 3% to touch the $470 mark, but progress here has been rather sluggish with not much movement either way although the trend has been generally positive.
