The Bitcoin price is up slightly this morning, hovering at just above $43k – up two per cent over the past 24 hours and five per cent since this time last week.
Ethereum is also up, currently changing hands for more than $3k. That’s up three per cent since yesterday morning and 10 per cent since last Thursday. The tech-heavy Nasdaq and S&P 500 were both down 1.2 per cent, as crypto moved slightly away from traditional stocks having spent so much time correlated lately.
The big moves can be seen further down the rankings, with altcoins showing signs of life. Cardano has seen the biggest gains in the last 24 hours, growing by more than 12 per cent in the period and by nearly 30 per cent in the last seven days.
Solana has also grown by more than five per cent in the last day. The Small Cap Index which includes smaller alt coins has seen a magnificent March and is so far up 17 per cent, having hovered around zero per cent until 16 March when it started increasing rapidly. The move could suggest more enthusiasm for risk among investors at least temporarily, possibly indicating that the market is waking up again after a spring of muted risk appetite.
