- Market activity has been largely positive in the last few hours
- THETA price has shot up following the pullback while Ether has cut above $2,550
The cryptocurrency sector is still reeling from late Monday’s short-lived slump that saw tokens fall to their weekly lows.
Bitcoin, which appeared to have cleared $39k earlier during the day, slid from $39,060 to a 7-day low of $37,387.92 in four hours, CoinGecko data shows. The king cryptocurrency has since bounced back and is changing hands at $38,860 – up 1.40% in the last 24 hours.
Ether, whose ETH/USD hourly trading chart shows positive movement, has clawed its way back above $2,575. Yesterday, the token fell to an intraday low slightly below $2,460 – a price level last touched on February 24. The pair has moved up by 1.4% today and is trading at $2,577 as of writing.
XRP and ADA yet to show a convincing comeback
Ripple’s XRP project is the notable token struggling to recover from the late Monday crash alongside Cardano (ADA). The native cryptocurrency of the XRP ledger lost support at $0.75 yesterday before seeing another descent to $0.709.
Attempts to bounce back have been thwarted, leaving its price against the dollar in the red. XRP has lost 2.30% in the last 24 hours to $0.7270 as per CoinGecko.
Solana (SOL) and Cardano (ADA) tokens have charted opposite paths in the last few hours. The former has recouped from the dramatic correction that saw its price decline to a 7-day bottom of $80.31 late yesterday. While Cardano (ADA) has risen above $0.80, it has failed to generate enough upside momentum to keep it afloat.
However, both tokens have lost more than 15% since last Tuesday.
THETA leading the gain charts among top tokens
Theta Network’s native token, THETA, is soaring in the market. Following the sharp fall from yesterday’s high of $2.83 to the day’s low of $2.64 in a matter of hours, THETA has seen a consistent uptrend today.
It has posted one of the biggest green candles in the last 24 hours- up more than 12.3%. The upsurge has pushed it back above $3.00. Notwithstanding, the token is down more than 80% from its $15.72 all-time high set last April.
