Bitcoin (BTC), the world’s oldest cryptocurrency, was trading at $30,147.17, higher by 4.45 per cent in the last 24 hours. Ethereum (ETH) was up by 5.92 per cent to $1,872.01.
“Bitcoin is trading at $30,283.58, currently, with a rebound of about 5% in the last 24 hours. Even though the market leader is trading higher than the previous week, this continues the record of ninth-straight weekly loss. Prices for Terra’s new LUNA tokens crashed almost as soon as they launched. Additional price breakdowns will result in higher levels of volatility,” says Gaurav Dahake, CEO and founder, Bitbns.

Paolo Ardoino, CTO, Tether, said in a press release, “Introducing a Peso-pegged stablecoin will provide a store of value for those in the emerging markets and in particular Mexico. MXN₮ can minimise volatility for those looking to convert their assets and investments from fiat to digital currencies. We have seen a rise in cryptocurrency usage in Latin America over the last year that has made it apparent that we need to expand our offerings”
