Ether rose by 1.5% to trade at $1,285. Most of the gains followed Fed chair Jerome Powell's Wednesday afternoon speech at the Brookings Institution in which he reiterated the pace of interest rate increase might begin to slow this month.  Several altcoins experienced similar rallies following the speech, while others lagged.
