Cryptocurrency Round-Up – June 15, 2018

969

Cryptocurrency values took another hammering this week as the prices of the leading coins all suffered on the markets.

The trigger seemed to be the hack of South Korean exchange Coinrail – with an estimated loss of $30 million.

Moments after the hack was revealed, the prices of digital currencies dropped with Bitcoin losing $500 in an hour.

Bitcoin losses mount up

In a week, this loss has mounted up to 15% of Bitcoin’s value – although the price has rallied up from the week’s low of $6,310.43.

In investment terms, that’s more than $19 billion wiped off the price of Bitcoin in a week.

Although disconnected from Bitcoin hacks, the seven-day charts for every other digital currency are in the red.

Ethereum followed suit and slumped to a low of $463.93.

Lastly, to give a broader view of the cryptocurrency market, the weekly price tables have extended to include Monero, Bitcoin Cash, Stellar and Eos.
