The markets were in a considerably duller mood over the past 24 hours as practically all major currencies gave up some of the gains achieved over the past week. BTC dropped below the $6,500 mark on Binance, although it seemed to be holding well on relatively low turnover. Bitcoin Cash also retreated slightly by about 2% to the $590 mark, remaining in second place as regards turnover.
Ripple continued declining by about 1% to the $0.51 mark, once again giving away most of its gains over the past week. It seems that rumours regarding a participation with SWIFT were just those—rumours. Ethereum also gave away some of its gains although the decline was relatively insignificant at just around 0.5%. Litecoin continued declining to the $53 level—another 2% drop.
The only currency which saw some positive movement was Stellar—it jumped around 6% to the $0.27 mark, whilst Cardano held on to the $0.077 level. NEO remained static at around $16.50, whilst Ethereum Classic also showed a small increase of around 1% to the $9.64 mark. EOS remained stuck at around the $5.56 level, whilst TRON was down by 1% to the $0.023 level.
Other larger currencies by market capitalization also saw slight declines. Dash was hovering around the $170 level on the back of the recent announcement that it will be moving forward on a Venezuela project where cryptocurrency can become available via SMS. ZCash was also static at around the $130 level, although it receded by far less than other currencies.
Coins with smaller market caps were either static or in decline. Binance Coin was down by around 1% to the $9.71 level, whilst IOTA also declined by a similar amount to below the $0.50 mark.
