The cryptocurrency market dropped almost 5% in value in the last 24 hours, wiping out half of its gains in the previous 24-hour period.

After widespread gains saw the 11,000 coins gain 10% from Sunday to Monday morning, they fell back to $1.46 trillion by 7am UK time on Tuesday morning.

Almost all the top 100 coins shed value. The world’s most valuable digital currency, Bitcoin (BTC), got off relatively lightly with a 3% drop – but is falling back towards $37,000 after closing on $39,000 yesterday. BTC is 25% up in a week.

The world’s second most valuable crypto, Ether (ETH), dropped 6% and is now at $2,200, up 26% over seven days.

Ripple’s XRP coin is at 63 cents, down 6% in 24 hours and up 18% in a week.
