The number two cryptocurrency, Ether, has seen mild gains on the day, currently trading at over $229.29 with a 1.38% gain on the day. On the week, the coin is up by over 10%.

As previously reported by Cointelegraph, the institutional cryptocurrency exchange San Francisco Open Exchange recently suggested that Ether may be close to losing its status as an altcoin, since its price is more correlated to Bitcoin’s than any other token.
