Posted on May 13, 2021 by Jonathan Symcox
The world’s most popular cryptocurrencies have fallen back once more in the last 24 hours after a brief recovery.
Bitcoin (BTC) was down 11% to under $51,000, having crept up to more than $57,000 by this time (7am) yesterday. It is down 11% on this time last week.
Ripple’s XRP coin fell 9% from $1.51 to $1.38, below its value of $1.41 48 hours ago. It has lost 20% of its value in a week.
Ethereum (ETH) suffered an uncharacteristic drop of 8.5% to $3,985, but remains 16% higher than this time last Thursday.
Dogecoin fell back to 45 cents from more than 50c yesterday, an 11% drop. It is down 28% on its position seven days ago.
Litecoin (LTC) is down 14% in value in 24 hours to around $331. The altcoin – billed a lighter and faster version of Bitcoin – is worth 2.5% less than a week ago.
Ether’s sibling Ethereum Classic (ETC), which last week hit a record $177, is now at $94, down 15% on Wednesday morning’s position.
Fewer than 10 of the top 100 coins by market cap rose in value in 24 hours, with the biggest rises – all around 20% – coming for Nano (NANO), Kusama (KSM) and Aave (AAVE).
