Bitcoin Price Dips Below $11,000

The bitcoin price tracked the market index on Monday, posting a 24-hour decline of seven percent that dipped the value of the flagship cryptocurrency below the $11,000 barrier and closer to four-figure territory. At present, bitcoin is trading at $10,479 on Bitfinex, which translates into a $180.7 billion global market cap.

Despite this moderate pullback, positive news coming out of South Korea should provide investors with confidence. As CCN reported, a major South Korean bank has said that it will process withdrawals for cryptocurrency traders, quelling fears — at least temporarily — that the cryptocurrency industry would be cut off from the mainstream financial sector.

Additionally, local media outlets reported that at least one high-ranking financial regulator has said that the government intends to allow exchanges to list bitcoin futures contracts, a move that would further solidify bitcoin’s status as a financial instrument in the country.

Ethereum Price Slips Below $1,000

Bitcoin was not the only cryptocurrency to slip below an important barrier on Monday. The ethereum price dropped below $1,000 this afternoon, punctuating a precipitous six percent decline. At present, ethereum is trading at $973, which gives the second-largest cryptocurrency a $95.9 billion market cap.

EOS, Stellar Stand Out in Otherwise Disappointing Altcoin Market

Altcoins engaged in a widespread decline, but both EOS and stellar posted strong returns in what was otherwise a disappointing day for the volatile cryptocurrency market.

The ripple price declined approximately 11 percent for the day, which constituted the worst performance among top 10-cryptocurrencies. The pullback reduced the third-largest cryptocurrency’s market cap to $46.7 billion.

The bitcoin cash price, meanwhile, posted a daily decline 10 percent and is currently trading at $1,597 with a $27 billion market cap.

Cardano, litecoin, NEM, and NEO each saw their prices ebb by close to eight percent, highlighting the degree to which the correction permeated the wider markets.

Two top-tier altcoins, however, managed to defy the overall market trend and post positive returns. The most impressive rally came from stellar, which achieved a five percent price rally despite the overall correction. Stellar now has a market cap of $8.6 billion, which ranks it eighth on the market cap charts.

The day’s second-best performance came from EOS, which climbed about four-and-a-half percent to bring its price to nearly $14 and raise its market cap to $13.6 billion.
