Posted on June 7, 2021 by Jonathan Symcox
The major cryptocurrencies held steady over the last 24 hours with Ether performing best over the weekend into Monday morning.
Ethereum (ETH) improved from $2,660 on Friday morning to around $2,785 at 7am on Monday, a 4% rise from Sunday morning and 20% gain over seven days.
It set a record price of $4,300 just last month.
Ripple’s XRP coin remains below the $1 threshold, climbing 2% in 24 hours to reach 96 cents.
It is up 7% on last Monday morning but way back from its record valuation of $1.91, set a few weeks ago.
Bitcoin (BTC) is at $36,388 after a slight 24-hour improvement which puts it 6% higher than a week ago.
There was little change for Dogecoin (DOGE) in the last 24 hours. The coin created as a crypto parody and based on a meme is between 37 and 38 cents, just below Friday morning’s price but 27% in a week.
The biggest climber in the last 24 hours was Tezos (XTZ), which reached $3.88 after moving up 12%. It is up 19% in a week.
There were slight drops among a handful of the top 100 coins, with UNUS SED LEO (LEO) faring worst. It fell 5% from Sunday morning but its seven-day price remains 8% up.
