Current Bitcoin Price: $6120 (as of 8:10 AM PST)
Ouch! The market is continuing to slump — and just like yesterday, Bitcoin is lucky to be down by only 2%, considering many other cryptos have taken at least twice the hit. It’s especially not looking good for VeChain (VEN, #17) or TRON (#11), which are both down by around 6%.
However, unlike yesterday, there are still a handful of coins in the green, such as Monaco (MCO, #86) and QTUM (#20) — up by 13 and 3 percent respectively.
