The major cryptocurrencies have gained value in the last 24 hours after falling back over the weekend.

However, in a blow to the investment scene, the FCA has banned the world’s largest crypto exchange – Binance – from conducting any regulated activity in the UK.

At the time of writing (7am UK), Bitcoin (BTC) is just below $35,000, where it was on Friday morning – and also last Monday – after a 5% rise in 24 hours.

Ethereum (ETH) reached $1,977 – again, similar to Friday’s early price – after gaining 6% in 24 hours. However it is 7% down in a week.

Ripple’s XRP token is up 3% to almost 64 cents after losing value over the weekend. It is 3c below its price on Friday morning and 13% down in a week.

Cardano (ADA), is at $1.32 after a 3% rise. It is 3c below Friday morning’s price and 4% below its value seven days ago.
