Bitcoin, XRP and Ether fall back – crypto movers and shakers
Posted on June 4, 2021 by Jonathan Symcox
The leading cryptocurrency coins lost value in the last 24 hours.
At the time of writing (7am), Bitcoin (BTC) fell back below $37,000 again with a 5% dip which cancelled out the gains from Wednesday to Thursday.
Ripple’s XRP coin is worth less than $1 again after an 8% drop. It is up 5% on last Friday morning but way back from its record valuation of $1.91, set a few weeks ago.
Ethereum (ETH) lost most of its gains in the previous 24-hour period, dropping 6% to around $2,660. It is up 3% on last Friday but again, its record price of $4,300, set last month, seems a long way off.
Dogecoin (DOGE) was the largest loser among the majors. The coin created as a crypto parody and based on a meme is down 13% in 24 hours to 38 cents.
Backed for great things by Tesla CEO Elon Musk, it had climbed in recent days and remains 17% up on its price seven days ago.
