Looking at the Top Four
Market leader Bitcoin keeps soaring irrespective of all the acrimony over scaling as well as over any “slow” transaction experiences. At 18:00 GMT on Wednesday, it was selling at $766.67 with a 0.46% gain. Experts believe the gold restriction in China plus the demonetization in India is influencing the rise. Trace Mayer of Bitcoin Knowledge predicts that it will reach $3000 in 34 months.
Ethereum maintained its 2nd position with an appreciation of 8.23% which was the 2nd best gain for the day to sell at $7.91. Honestly, it is refreshing news for Ethereum since it has been in free fall in recent time losing as much as nearly 20% less than 48 hours ago.
With a 2.59% rise, Ripple was 3rd selling at $0.006651. Some say the Global Settlement Network is poised to reduce cross-border transfers significantly, others disagree.
At number 4 was Litecoin. It clinched 1.44% and was selling at $3.59. Apparently, Litecoin getting on Jaxx has been a prudent move.
