Bitcoin appears to have stabilised at just below the $57,000 mark this morning, down one per cent over the past 24 hours but still up more than $2k since its weekend lows. The largest cryptocurrency by market capitalisation rose to just below $59,000 yesterday, though it drifted lower overnight.
The crypto markets generally remain uncertain, despite recovering somewhat after Friday’s crash. Investors are still waiting for more information about the Omicron coronavirus strain and its potential impact on the global financial markets. Head of drugmaker Moderna, Stéphane Bancel, yesterday said COVID-19 vaccines are likely to be less effective against the Omicron variant of the coronavirus. Japan’s Nikkei stock market index fell by 1.6 per cent after Bancel’s comments.
Elsewhere, Ethereum is up two per cent since yesterday morning to more than $4,400. The big gainers this morning are Shiba INU (SHIB), which is up around 22 per cent at time of writing, and Terra (LUNA), which is up roughly 10 per cent. Everything else is roughly flat.
