Cryptocurrency Round-Up – August 31, 2018

969

Bitcoin trading has picked up after a sluggish summer – dragging several other cryptocurrencies along for the ride.

Optimism seems to have returned to the market as Bitcoin has shaken off trading in August that saw the price drop to around $6,800.

But in recent days, the price has picked up and bounced back through the $7,000 mark to currently trade at $7,200.

Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum and Ripple XRP have followed suit, all posting recent rises after a difficult few weeks.

EOS is the only ‘big’ cryptocurrency to remain languishing just over 2% down on current trading.

Ripple XRP has seen a big boost, with market capitalisation doubling from $16.98 billion to $33.89 billion.

Flying colours in passing a stress test has seen Bitcoin Cash jump $12 on the day to $628 after a disappointing summer that posted prices that fell as low as $560.
