Meanwhile, Ethereum’s value has increased by 7%, whereas XRP witnessed a jump rate of over 5% in its prices.
The total value of the cryptocurrency trading market- Market Capitalization, recorded a surprising leap of $14 Billion to $182.62 Billion within a mere 24 hours at 11:47 am Singapore time, says the data of the website Coinmarketcap.com.
The entire Cryptocurrency market suffered severe losses at the start of March. On 8th March, the whole business failed when oil prices took a hard fall. Furthermore, on 12th March, the Cryptocurrency lost $93.5 of its value within a day, and even worse, Bitcoin suffered a 48% fall in its prices.
As observed, the growth of Cryptocurrency is marching foot by foot with the Equity market. Since recent years, people have started viewing Bitcoin as ‘digital gold,’ having complete faith that investing in it even under times of economic slowdown can be profitable. Unfortunately, Bitcoin, like the Equity market too, started suffering losses and became a risk asset, especially since the start of this year.
“We’re seeing some bullish bitcoin price action today along with other asset classes after the Fed announced unprecedented measures yesterday to shore up the economy. It will be interesting to see how bitcoin fares in such an environment. Given this is its first test as a haven asset in a market downturn and is yet to be proven,” says Vijay Ayyar in a conversation with CNBC.
