Cryptocurrency Trading News: Bitcoin Stays Calm; Litecoin Continues to Slide; Darkcoin Rises


Cryptocurrency vector icons – In an article we did this week, we hopefully presumed Bitcoin to have a brighter future in countries with a bad economical shape, citing Argentina as a “supposed” example. However, it has been reported recently that the country’s two major banks – Banco Santander Rio and Banco Galicia – stopped providing banking services to cryptocurrency-related businesses. The pessimism this event spread in the entire cryptocurrency market was clearly seen in the price charts of most traded coins.

Leaving Bitcoin and Darkcoin aside, almost every top coin fell notably in the last 24 hours. It is a time when almost every coin is seeing a considerable volume drop, which ultimately brings us to the speculation that altcoin traders are mostly holding on to their investments, or are selling them in exchange of either Bitcoin or fiat currencies.


Bitcoin meanwhile is enjoying the attention it is receiving from day-to-day funds and investments. Even in last 24 hours, the digital currency balanced its stand quite well when the news of Britain’s Chancellor George Osborne left the wire. Reportedly, the man decided to study Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies to figure out their actual potential in renovating finance markets. This ultimately balances the coin’s market mood; thus the stagnancy we are encountering.

Here is the full report:

The BTC/USD opened yesterday at around $588 and stayed in a narrow trading range for the rest of the day. The pair once hit the intra-day low of $584 but was continuously supported by long term traders, those who seem to have the maximum hold of the market. The pair meanwhile showed no signs of a downtrend, or a sell-off and stayed in its comfortable zone throughout the day. It closed at $586.

The BTC/USD has dropped 0.5% in the last 24 hours and is trading at $583.87.
