Crypto Price Today: Bitcoin Nears $17,000; Uniswap, Solana and XRP gain up to 5%

New Delhi: The crypto market rose for the second day in a row on Wednesday, but gains were capped in top tokens even as the post-FTX crypto world crumbled.

Inflation data encouraged investors, pushing Bitcoin near $17,000, while Ethereum consolidated above the $1,250 levels.

Uniswap rebounded around 5% and XRP 4%. Cardano and Solana gained 2% each. BNB and Tron were among the big losers.

The global cryptocurrency market capitalization was trading slightly higher around $850 billion, gaining around half a percent in the past 24 hours. However, the total trading volume fell by around 25% to $62.20 billion.

Global Updates

The founder of bankrupt cryptocurrency exchange FTX, Sam Bankman-Fried, is asking investors to commit to raising new funds, The Wall Street Journal reported on Tuesday, citing people familiar with the matter.

Crypto lender BlockFi is preparing for a potential bankruptcy filing due to its “significant exposure” to bankrupt crypto exchange FTX, it reported.

The implosion of crypto exchange FTX has shocked the industry financially and led to a “crisis of confidence” in the world of digital assets, said Lex Sokolin, chief economist of decentralized protocols at software firm ConsenSys.

The resolve of long-term bitcoin holders to continue building up their coin reserves has weakened amid fears that the implosion of crypto exchange FTX could prolong the crypto winter.

Expert grip

Sathvik Vishwanath, co-founder and CEO of Unocoin, said the liquid exchange acquired by FTX has suspended withdrawals to comply with regulations regarding FTX’s bankruptcy filing.

“Bitcoin is now stable and its 50-day moving average is likely to provide resistance at $17,350 and a cross above this level has the potential to take the price towards $18,190,” he added. .

Technical view of the BuyUcoin cryptocurrency exchange

Algorand (ALGO) is a strong candidate for the creation of a global payment network based on a proof-of-stake mechanism. ALGO is down nearly 90% from its all-time high of $3.28 three years ago, but has recently received considerable attention from crypto enthusiasts as it promises mass use cases to support various applications in real-world concepts.


ALGO is up more than 12% in the past 24 hours on heightened investor interest and momentum should continue if global macro factors remain supportive.
