Cryptocurrency: Majority follows Bitcoin, Ether on gain trail; Dog coins suffer losses


Bitcoin, the world’s oldest cryptocurrency, started up 3.24 percent on Wednesday. The cryptocurrency is currently trading on the Indian exchange CoinSwitch Kuber at USD 67,194.43 (approximately 50 lakh). The development comes after Bitcoin marked a weak start to the week with slight price declines and a gradual rebound. The world’s most valuable cryptocurrency entered November with a notable drop in price of over two percent – almost threatening Bitcoin’s recent sustained streak of holding over $ 60,000 (about 45 lakh) in value.

With a price increase of 5.04 percent, Ether started trading at $ 4,853.73 (roughly Rs 3.6 lakh) per token, according to the cryptocurrency price tracker Gadgets 360. This is a significant rebound for Ether considering it started the month of November with a trade value of $ 4,499 (about Rs.3.3 lakh) per token.

Among the cryptocurrencies that have appreciated today, Ripple has grown significantly by 8.08 percent. Cardano, Polkadot, Uniswap, and Litecoin are some of the other altcoins that helped make the price charts greener.

However, the day has turned out to be a tough day for meme-based dog coins.

Amid a fierce ongoing market war, both Elon Musk-backed Dogecoin and its rival Shiba Inu marked the day with losses of 0.08 percent and 6.62 percent, respectively. For Shiba Inu, that depreciation comes after the price recently rose 50 percent and continued to rise until a day ago.

Other dog-based altcoins like Floki Inu, Kishu Inu, and Nano Dogecoin have also seen losses.

Meanwhile, the adoption of cryptocurrencies is gaining momentum in several parts of the world.

Fast food giant Burger King recently partnered with investment platform Robinhood to give U.S. citizens the chance to win crypto rewards in Dogecoin, Ether, and Bitcoin.
