Crypto Markets Fluctuate After Rapid Rebound, But Decline Is Still Insignificant
Cryptocurrency markets continue fluctuating, still do not show a significant drop.

After hitting monthly lows on March 18, and seeing a significant rebound on March 19, cryptocurrency markets have slowed down rapid growth and continue fluctuating around yesterdays levels.

Bitcoin (BTC) saw an increase of 4.04 percent over a 24 hour period, trading at $8,849 at press time, according to Coinmarketcap.


Ethereum (ETH), which dropped by 19.85 percent in the last 7 days, also experienced a small increase of 1.30 percent over the last 24 hours, trading at $553.10 at press time.


Litecoin (LTC) increased by 5.12 percent over a 24 hour period with a current trading value of $167.42


The remaining top-10 altcoins listed on Coinmarketcap are still in the green with IOTA and EOS increasing by 10.98 and 13.15 percent over a 24 hour period, trading at $1.45 and $6.15, respectively.

Total market capitalization is at nearly $342 bln at press time after hitting $275 bln on March 18.


The fluctuation in markets is likely due to uncertainty around G20 proceedings in Buenos Aires, where international regulators will consider issues surrounding cryptocurrencies. Markets have already seen a significant spike yesterday following Governor of the Bank of England (BoE) Mark Carneys positive comments to G20 members that crypto poses no risk to the stability of the global economy.

According to the latest news from the Financial Stability Board, a regulatory body formed by the G20 in 2009, cryptocurrencies are expected to be considered assets rather than currencies. The idea is similar to Carneys recent outlook on crypto, arguing that Bitcoin has failed as a currency, and should be regarded as an asset.
