Crypto Market Update: Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Ripple, Slide Lower 

It has arguably been a volatile and disappointing 24 hours for digital currencies after managing to push higher in Asia; the virtual token market has given away gains and more in a short period. The top 3 digital currencies suffered setbacks as well as the top ten. The current state of things has reduced the digital currency market value to 426.4 billion USD as reported by Coin Market Cap.

Here’s What We Know

Price Analysis For Bitcoin

The price of Bitcoin is down by 1.8% in just the last 24 hours, and it’s currently trading at 9,124.71 USD per digital coin. This has ultimately reduced the world’s largest crypto token’s market capitalization to under 155.4 billion USD. Despite the fact that a crypto expert told CNBC that Bitcoin has the potential to hit the 64,000 USD mark next year, the digital token has not been able to break forth its bearish trend in recent days.
