Stellar Development Foundation invests $5 million in Abra

The Stellar Development Foundation, a non-profit organization supporting the Stellar ecosystem, invested $5 million in Abra to help integrate Stellar into its back-end while also helping to build out additional financial services.

The chart shows few bullish signs, and it's likely that more downside may present itself over the following week. The altcoin market has held steady in correlation to Bitcoin - which suggests a bearish futu...
