Bitcoin, Ether, Other Cryptocurrencies Fall

You are currently viewing Bitcoin, Ether, Other Cryptocurrencies Fall

Cryptocurrency market is witnessing major upheaval following China’s blanket ban on cryptocurrencies, which was announced last week. Bitcoin opened at Rs. 33,52,013 (roughly $45,185) on Wednesday, September 29. The world’s most-valued cryptocurrency witnessed a marginal dip of 0.78 percent making it the second day in a row to have dropped in exchange value. A day ago, Bitcoin had slumped by 2.96 percent. Analysts from exchange platform CoinDCX believe that the Chinese government’s crypto restrictions have resulted in a sell-off with only a little long-term impact on Bitcoin price, which has often been seen to recover following an initial dip.

The day began on a rough note for the world’s second most-valued cryptocurrency Ether as well. The Ethereum blockchain-based cryptocurrency fell in price by 1.39 percent. Presently, Ether is trading at Rs. 2,31,183 (roughly $3,116). On September 29, Ether had registered a significant drop of 5.93 percent, as per the Gadgets 360 crypto-price tracker.

Similarly, other popular cryptocurrencies like Dogecoin, Cardano, and Litecoin have also witnessed marginal slips in exchange values
