  • Barack Obama, Elon Musk, Binance, and many others had their Twitter accounts hacked.

Ethereum has dropped to $230 after a significant sell-off following the recent Twitter hack. The attacker targeted all major cryptocurrency exchanges followed by prominent figures like Elon Musk and even former US president Barack Obama. Dozens of celebrities were hacked in what seems like a Twitter vulnerability. Bitcoin started dropping shortly after the hack and most altcoins followed suit.

This recent drop is definitely not good for Ethereum which has lost its daily uptrend and lost the daily 12-EMA and the 26-EMA. It’s not game over for the bulls yet as they can still recover in the next 24 hours. The hack itself wasn’t that catastrophic and only around $100,000 was stolen, a sum not large enough to cause any direct price change.
