OspreyFX Crypto Market Roundup: Bitcoin continues to hold firm
The crypto markets continue to hold firm against possible drops with several currencies rising in value. Legacy Bitcoin was up by around 2% to the $10,700 level with turnover on the rise. Ethereum was also on the up albeit with a rather small movement of around 0.5% up to the $174 level.
According to recent analysis, around 75% of Bitcoin holders are actually in profit although the outlook remains bearish. Additionally, Crypto markets didn’t seem to be much affected by the rise in stock markets. With the Dow Jones, Nasdaq and S&P up by around 1.5% each, there was some speculation that this positive might spill over to the cryptocurrency world, but this was not the case.
