Current Bitcoin Price: $6488 (as of 12:30 AM PST)
It’s normally quite binary with cryptocurrency: either the market is up or the market is down. This afternoon we’re following a small, but much-welcomed upswing across major currencies.
Bitcoin is up 1.80% and Ethereum 3.06% but yet again Ripple has outdone the market today — up by more than 18%. Interestingly, Bitcoin Cash is in the same category as XRP, up more than 18% as well.
