Please explain to me why the ETH/BTC price is decreasing but ETH/USD price is increasing. How does that work? Why it costs less in bitcoins but more in USD? enter image description here

1 Answer 1


It means that the value of btc is increasing at a higher rate than the value of eth. Therefore it takes less btc to buy eth, and the cost of eth in btc is dropping.

  • In other words, consider trading your ETH to BTC if that trend prominently persists. Feb 17, 2018 at 22:12
