Current Bitcoin Price: $6700 (as of 8:10 AM PST)
It has been a relatively quiet 24 hours; that is until 2 hours ago, when Bitcoin shot up over $200 pulling the entire market up several percent. In fact, Cardano (ADA, #7) is the only top-10 coin that isn’t up today.
Sticking to the more known coins, Ethereum Classic, IOTA, Monero, and NEO have all done well today — up by more than 4%. Syscoin, which is featured in today’s stories, stands at rank 76 after shooting up over 6.5%.
