Crypto update: Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, EOS higher, Ethereum, Ripple, and Stellar drop lower

It was a bit of a mixed weekend of trade for the crypto market. After a strong rebound on Saturday, the market has once again dropped back a touch.

At the time of writing the value of the entire market stands at US$296.9 billion according to Coin Market Cap. This is down just over 1% since this time on Saturday but up 1.5% since the same time on Friday.

Here is the state of play on Monday morning:

The Bitcoin (BTC) price has edged 0.15% higher over the last 24 hours to US$8,190.11 per coin, lifting the world’s largest cryptocurrency’s market capitalisation to US$140.7 billion.

The Ethereum (ETH) price has dropped 0.1% lower over the period to US$465.24 per token, reducing ETH’s market capitalisation to just under US$47 billion.

The Ripple (XRP) price has fallen 0.3% since this time yesterday to 45.2 U.S. cents, leaving the popular alt coin with a market capitalisation just a touch under US$17.8 billion.

The Bitcoin Cash (BCH) price has climbed 1.1% during the last 24 hours to US$823.64, giving the Bitcoin spin off a market capitalisation of US$14.2 billion.

The EOS (EOS) price has pushed 0.1% higher over the period to US$8.26 per token. This leaves EOS with a market capitalisation of US$7.4 billion.

Outside the top five things were similarly mixed.

Stellar (XLM) has given back some of its recent gains with a 2% decline to 30.7 U.S. cents, Litecoin (LTC) is up 0.1% to US$83.81, Cardano (ADA) has edged 0.1% higher to 16.26 U.S. cents, IOTA (MIOTA) has fallen 0.8% to US$1.01, and TRON (TRX) has returned to the top ten after climbing 8.2% to 3.97 U.S. cents.

A series of positive announcements from its founder appears to have helped drive the TRON price higher this weekend. One announcement advised that TRON’s Virtual Machine is due to be launched within the next 24 hours.
