The cryptocurrency market rebounded in the last 24 hours after almost half a trillion dollars was wiped off its value over the weekend.

The massive crash saw the market cap of the almost 15,300 coins drop from $2.62 trillion on Friday morning to $2.26tr on Monday. A 5.9% rise saw it return to $2.38tr at the time of writing on Tuesday (7am UK).

Market leader Bitcoin (BTC) gained 6% to top $51,150, which leaves it 9% down over seven days.

Ethereum (ETH), the world’s second most valuable token, did not suffer as much as Bitcoin over the weekend. Nevertheless, it also rose 6% in the last 24 hours to $4,350. The smart contract blockchain platform is 1% down in a week.

Ripple (XRP) gained 8% to 84 cents yet is 15% down in a week, while a 10% rise for Cardano (ADA) saw it reach $1.45, 7% down over seven days.

Solana (SOL) jumped 6% to just under $200, a 2% fall in a week, while Polkadot (DOT) climbed 8% to $28.60, leaving it 20% down over seven days.

Binance Coin’s (BNB) 8% gain puts it at $590, which is 4% down on a week ago.

Terra (LUNA), which recently cracked the top 10 of the most valuable currencies, rose 10% to almost $68 and is up 29% in a week.

Another coin massively up over seven days is Polygon (MATIC), which is at $2.42 thanks to a 32% jump which puts it 39% higher than last Tuesday’s price.

It is 14th in the valuation table, $4 billion behind SHIBA INU (SHIB) and $7bn behind both that coin’s parent Dogecoin (DOGE) and Avalanche (AVAX).

DOGE is around 18 cents thanks to an 8% gain while SHIB climbed 9%. They are 17% and 21% down in a week respectively.

AVAX is at $95 thanks to a 16% spike in the last 24 hours, which leaves it 19% down in a week.
