Crypto market red, XVG price feel the heat too
Since yesterday, the entire crypto market is in red. Though the reason for the same is not clear yet, the prices dropped down at the time when the news of Korean crypto exchange Coinrail came out yesterday.
Positioned at 33rd, as per the Coinmarketcap, Verge is at $0.0315 with a loss of about 11.12 percent in the last 24 hours.
The daily trading volume of Verge is $14.8 million with a market cap of $475 million. XVG is running in red against BTC trading pair as well.
At the beginning of the day, XVG price even slides down to the $0.0304 level. The downward trend has been a constant one which has taken a slight upward shift from its lowest $0.0304 point.
Given the current market trend right now where almost all the cryptocurrencies are down by several percentages, it is kind of expected of XVG as well. Before this severe drop down, the crypto market has been experiencing a lot of turbulence as well as the prices keep on going up and down on almost constant basis.
A point worth noting is, awareness, adoption, and security measures are rising that is certainly good for the cryptocurrency market in the long term.
