Crypto market daily report – August 22, 2018
The cryptocurrency market continued to show some signs of life on Wednesday morning with BTC increasing by around 5% to top the $6,700 mark. This is undoubtedly a reaction to the announcement that an ETF decision on a particular BTC fund is due on Thursday with the market already priced in for any development.
Bitcoin Cash also showed a good increase when it recovered from a slight dip on Tuesday to rise by 5% and reach the $550 mark—a level that had not been seen since last week and demonstrating that a recovery in this currency was well underway. Ethereum lagged behind the other major currencies with regards to growth, increasing only by around 2% to the $286 level after having dropped to a yearly low of $272 earlier on Tuesday. Ripple also maintained its momentum and touched the $0.34 mark on Wednesday as it held its own after a good surge in the past few days.
EOS also recovered well and was trading at well over the $5.00 mark on Wednesday morning at press time or an increase of around 5%. Litecoin also increased by a similar margin to trade at the $58 level, whilst Ethereum Classic rebounded from its decline on Tuesday to trade at the $13 level yet again at press time. Cardano remained slightly sluggish and was only up by around 3% to flirt around the $10 level, whilst NEO regained the $18.50 level with a surge of around 8%.
Other coins with smaller market caps also showed considerable increases with VET charging ahead by no less than 12% to trade at the $0.015 level.
