August 28, 2018 @ 19:11 +03:00
Tuesday, August 28: crypto markets are seeing strong positive momentum bolster a persuasive recovery, as Bitcoin (BTC) breaks above the $7,000 price point and all but 3 altcoins amid the top 100 cryptocurrencies post strong gains on the day. Growth among the top ten largest assets ranges between 4.5 to almost 20 percent, as Coin360 data shows.
Bitcoin (BTC) is trading at around $7,016 at press time, up around 4.2 percent on the day, according to Cointelegraph’s Bitcoin price index. The top coin has seen several days of recovery since its brief price dent August 22 in the wake of toughened anti-crypto measures in China and a fresh series of disapproval orders for several Bitcoin exchange-traded funds (ETFs) by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).
On the week, Bitcoin is up a strong 4.1 percent, with its monthly gains now around 9.1 percent. Ethereum (ETH) is trading around $289 at press time, up a solid 3.4 percent on the day. While, the coin has yet to reclaim the $300 price point — which it last held August 20 — today, August 28, has seen the first persuasive upswing in price performance after a jagged and tentative week range bound between $270-280. Ethereum is now up 3.4 percent on the week; on the month, losses are just slightly down and remain at a stark 37.8 percent. Among the top ten coins by market cap, Cardano (ADA) is up over 9 percent to trade at $0.10 at press time, with Litecoin (LTC) up 7.64 percent and Ripple (XRP) up 7.3 percent to trade at $61.88 and $0.35 respectively. The strongest top ten performer is IOTA (MIOTA), soaring a staggering 19.4 percent on the day and capping two days of rapid growth to trade around $0.71 at press time.
