Current Bitcoin Price: $6667 (as of 8:30 AM PST)
For a market as volatile as this one, it’s weird to see Bitcoin suspended at the $6500 price mark. It’s holding its value incredibly well coming up to the end of this year’s decisive price wedge, and has even appreciated by 1.5% today.
Most other coins are faring similarly well, with most top-20 coins up by two to three percent. TRON and IOTA have both seen more significant rallies today, up by more than five percent.
