The cryptocurrency market continued to rebound on Tuesday, crossing the $80 billion-mark after a weekend that saw steep declines across the asset class.
At press time, all of the top 30 cryptocurrencies had posted 24-hour gains, according to data provider Coinmarketcap.
Leading the recovery were the ecosystem’s three largest assets by market capitalization – bitcoin, ether and XRP, all of which were up more than 10% on the day’s trading.
After dropping to below $2,000 this weekend, the price of bitcoin is now trading above $2,300, while ether notably crossed $200 for the first time since July 14.
At press time, the total value of the market was down just over 25% from an all-time high of $115 billion set in mid-June.
