Crypto Winds Blowing North As Market Inches Up

Investing, News | September 28, 2018 By:

Today’s early trading in the cryptocurrency markets has bitcoin and ether starting to move up the ladder. Bitcoin now sits at the $6,600 mark, up close to two percent over the last 24 hours, while ether has recovered from its pullback and is now up solidly, sitting at $225.

Thursday’s big gainers, Bitcoin Cash and Litecoin, are starting to give back some of yesterday’s huge gains. Bitcoin Cash is at $545 as some of the enthusiasm over Bitmain’s IPO wanes, while Litecoin’s listing on the SFOX market has also settled down its advocates slightly.
