Cardano (CRYPTO: ADA), Ripple (CRYPTO: XRP), and Avalanche's (CRYPTO: AVAX) tokens were down roughly 7%, 9%, and 11%, respectively, over the previous 24 hours, as of 5:30 p.m. ET. Bitcoin was down roughly 8% and Ethereum's ether token fell roughly 9%. Cryptocurrencies aren't alone in posting big sell-offs recently.
