This weekend was dominated by the coinbase plans anouncement to possibly add some more coins for trading which acted as a catalyst for those alt coin gains.
Much to the delight of traders, it has been a very positive weekend for the crypto market with gains being seen across the board.
This has lifted the value of the entire crypto market up to US$256.5 billion according to Coin Market Cap, which equates to a 4.8% gain since this time on Friday.
Here is the state of play on Monday morning:
The Bitcoin (BTC) price has risen 1.5% since this time yesterday to US$6,384.65 per coin. This has lifted the crypto giant’s market capitalization to just over US$109.5 billion.
The Ethereum (ETH) price has pushed 3.4% higher over the last 24 hours to US$451.72 per token, increasing Ethereum’s market capitalization to US$45.5 billion.
The Ripple (XRP) price is up 1.7% during the period to 44.75 U.S. cents, improving the alt coin‘s market capitalization to just under US$17.6 billion.
The Bitcoin Cash (BCH) price has climbed 3.2% higher since this time yesterday to US$726.99 per coin. This leaves the Bitcoin offshoot with an improved market capitalization of over US$12.5 billion.
