Crypto Markets See Green: ETH Breaks Solidly Above $400, BTC Nears $7,000
The top ten coins on Coinmarketcap are in the green today, with BTC touching $7,000 and ETH passing comfortably above $400.
ETH is up almost 6 percent over a 24 hour period, trading for around $420 by press time.
Of the top ten coins listed on CoinMarketCap, EOS is by far up the most - more than 20 percent over a 24 hour period to press time - currently trading at around $7.2. EOS’s price jump could be attributed to the recent announcement of the EOIS Blockchain platform Dawn 3.0’s pre-release on April 6.
Total market cap is around $270 bln by press time, below the intra-month high of $283 bln on April 3, but above the start to the month’s low of $243 bln.
The European Commission’s declaration of support for Blockchain innovation yesterday, and the creation of a European Blockchain Partnership made up of 22 countries, are recent large wins for Blockchain adoption that could be keeping BTC and ETH’s prices near $7,000 and $400 respectively.
