The major cryptocurrency coins have all lost value in the last 24 hours.

At the time of writing (7am), Ethereum (ETH) had dropped the most among the most valuable currencies.

After climbing 5% to above $2,200 in the previous 24 hours, Ether shed almost 9% from Thursday to Friday morning to drop towards $2,000. It is 3% up on its price last Friday.

The average fee for transactions on the smart contract platform has dropped towards the $2 mark, its lowest since December.

At one point in May, during the crypto bull run, its average fees had risen to nearly $70, but the market correction has seen it plummet.

Bitcoin (BTC), which had broken $35,000 on Wednesday, is below £33k after a 4% dip in the last 24 hours. It is 5% down in a week.

Cardano (ADA) dropped 4% to $1.30 and is 4% lower than its valuation seven days ago.

Meme coin Dogecoin (DOGE) is around 24 cents after a 2% drop which cancels out the gain in the previous 24-hour period. Its seven-day price is down 11%.

Binance Coin (BNB) dropped 5% to $279 and is 8% down in a week.
