Ethereum is holding onto its second position by market cap, which is at about $14.9 billion, almost $2 billion ahead of the second-largest altcoin, Ripple which is currently trading at $0.31 and has a market cap of about $13 billion at the time of writing.

Ethereum is showing a minor gain of 0.62% over the last 24 hours, and is trading just below the $142 price mark, after having started the day at prety much the same price.

Ethereum has seen its value decrease by about 3.5% according to its weekly chart.

Although plenty of industry experts are claiming that Ethereum is losing ground as developers are switching to other projects, Vitalik recently stated that they are no where close to 'blowing it' as the leading altcoin project.

Among the top 20 cryptocurrencies, which are mostly reporting slight to moderate gains on the day, Ontology is the one Top 20 coin that is showing the most notable growth with more than 4.5% gains in the past 24 hours.

Recently Chepicap reported Ontology to be one of the top 12 coins that outperformed Bitcoin by more than 60%.

'Finally, the top of the pyramid is taken by the few projects which have added some heavyweight to their investor´s bags. With some of them doubling their prices in a matter of three months, it is no wonder why some are already calling for a full-blown alt season. The top 12 coins are Enjin, ABBC, Chain, Ravencoin, THETA, Binance Coin, Holo, Huobi Token, Ontology, Litecoin, Augur and Steem.'

The total market cap of all cryptocurrencies is currently equivalent to $143.6 billion, more than $3.6 billion added since the value it saw one week ago.
