Bitcoin: USD/BTC (BTC=X) Shows Signs of Recovery
Bitcoin is trading at $10,407 at press time, representing a 0.82% price increase on the day. Bitcoin has ranged from just under $10,000 to over $12,000 this month and had most recently been on a downward streak. However, after bottoming out around $9,700 today, BTC has turned around to retake the $10,000 barrier and push beyond.
The number two cryptocurrency, ETH, has continued its gradual decline. Ether is currently trading at $188.32 and trending down by 1.99%. Bad news for investors in ETH and BTC alike broke earlier today, with a blockchain investment company founding partner telling the public on Twitter that a Chinese Ponzi scheme has robbed investors of $3 billion. This scam is apparently called PlusToken, and the aforementioned partner, Dovey Wan, called upon cybersecurity companies Chainalysis and PeckShield to investigate further.
