The next most anticipated event in the crypto market is Ethereum network upgrade and even that is scheduled near the end of February 2019. As there are no major events or market updates expected in near future, range bound action is likely to continue through the first half of February. Bitcoin today suffered least losses despite legacy crypto’s seeing sharp declines.
