Cryptocurrency Trading News: Bitcoin Drops a Bit; Drags Altcoins as Well


Cryptocurrency vector icons – Ahead of the weekend, the cryptocurrency market is hinting depressive price behavior. In the last 24 hours, almost every top coin including Bitcoin, Litecoin, Dogecoin, etc. have slipped by notable margins, indicating bearish behavior during the next sessions. Darkcoin at the same time has turned out to be the only coin which has shown some progress, after falling massively in previous days.

Speaking of Bitcoin, its sector has been filled with optimistic news all these hours – the most wonderful being the possibility of more merchants adapting the digital currency after the successful deal between BitPay and Demandware, Inc. While this news is yet unworthy to add few more dollars to Bitcoin price, but is indeed worthy enough to decorate the coin’s stand among international merchants and consumers.

Meanwhile at the same time, the cryptocurrency market is facing shocks from the only coin that was rising superbly from previous days. BitSharesX fell as like it rose, indicating nothing but a well-planned pump-and-dump by its key actors. The coin’s market cap has fallen over 32% in the last 24 hours.
