Bitcoin Rallies As Cryptocurrency Market Finally Shows A Majority Of Green Arrowsbr>
The bitcoin tide turned today, as the losses of the last week were reversed in what amounts to a mini-rally. But the upward momentum, however minor, was welcome relief from the relentless tide of bad news that’s lately been the norm.
At mid-morning, bitcoin was up to $7,400 per single coin, up nearly three percent over the last 24 hours. Other coins in the top ten showed renewed vigor as well, with ether up more than five percent and Bitcoin Cash approaching a six percent gain. Litecoin, Ripple and Cardano (boosted more than 11 percent, the day’s major gainer) were also heading north on the price charts.
The only down notes were from EOS (down close to two percent) and TRON, which dipped less than one percent.
