It is rousing times for the bitcoin and crypto community as the markets continue their buoyant streak. Only two coins suffered a dip with the rest appreciating encouragingly with one, in particular, gaining 7.50% at the top 10 today.
Bitcoin Rising… As Predicted?
At 18:00 GMT Thursday Bitcoin was still bullish, recording a 0.48 percentage rise to close at $775, against yesterday’s $766.67. Interestingly, Saxo Bank’s Chief Economist Steen Jakobson had predicted a $2000+ bitcoin price for 2017.
Meanwhile Eth is rallying along invigoratingly, capturing 0.83% upward adjustment. Exchanges had it listed at $8.39. Ether’s recovery is great news for its investors and enthusiasts.
Wait! There is more! Ripple made the biggest gain of the day with a 7.50% rise – a laudable improvement from yesterday’s 2.7% to remain at number three. Its market price was $0.007146 compared to $0.006651 in the last 24 hours.
Don’t Forget Ethereum Classic
What a sunny day on the market as resilient Litecoin kept the tempo. With an exchange rate of $3.59, it appreciated by 2.29 percentage points to be among the top four.
Monero kept its 5th position with a slight gain posting 1.64% and a $7.78 rate because its last listing was $7.49. Apparently, Monero wasn’t affected by all the smell of exit scam.
Ether’s younger brother Ethereum classic didn’t disappoint either by maintaining its 6th position even though its appreciation was lower than the previous day’s listing. It closed at $0.825959 with a positive 0.73%.
The number seven spot was held by Dash with a mixed feeling of a slight decrease in its gains from yesterday, but an upsurge in its exchange rate a little bit. It was selling at $8.75 with a 0.08% payoff.
At number eight was a spectacular rating from social media challenger Steem, which put smiles on the faces of its followers. A 1.10% growth made up for the embarrassing 17.24% dip on Wednesday. Its market value rate was $0.229909 per CoinMarketcap.
Augur and Nem kept number their 9th and 10th positions respectively intact. Noteworthily, the two were the only two cryptocurrencies in the top ten to plummet today.
Augur lost it by negative 1.86% and offered for sale at $3.22. NEM did -0.96% with a value of $0.003394.
Notable Cryptocurrencies of the Day
