Cryptocurrency Price Today: The crypto market has been rallying over the past four days amid hopeful signs that inflation will soon be under control without triggering a steep recession. The cryptocurrency market on Tuesday, August 9, continued its upward trajectory. Bitcoin briefly topped the $24,000 mark, supporting the notion that investors have a risk appetite for the riskier asset class. The global crypto market capitalisation went up by 1.77 per cent to $1.12 trillion as of 8.50 am. The global crypto volume was up by 71.22 per cent to $70.6 billion, according to Coinmarketcap data.
Charles Tan, CMO, Atato, said: “The overall crypto market cap increased by 2 per cent reaching $1.13 trillion. The crypto market volume surged correspondingly which clearly shows an inflow of funds that may be attributed to retail and institutional investors gaining confidence. Based on the past 2 months data, the crypto market seems to have found some form of support at current levels. After the Terra Luna collapse and fallout, the market has entered a more stable, mature phase and investors who bought in at low levels are finding positive results of holding onto their positions. ”
All the top crypto tokens were trading with decent gains on Tuesday. The world’s largest and most popular cryptocurrency Bitcoin was trading nearly 0.04 per cent higher at $23,834.03. On the other hand, Ether, the coin linked to the Ethereum blockchain and the second largest cryptocurrency, rose over 2 per cent to $1,773.78.
“There is increased confidence with can possibly be attributed to the upcoming Ethereum merge. We may be able to see more institutional buying after a long hiatus for many institutions which will hopefully continue market positivity in the coming weeks,” Tan stated.
Meanwhile, dogecoin price today was trading more than 2 per cent higher at $0.06. Only BNB, Avalanche, and Shiba Inu were marginally down.
In other news, global crypto exchange Binance said it would remove off-chain fund transfers with WazirX, three days after the Directorate of Enforcement (ED) raised concerns about such transactions.
