Moderate Crypto Appreciation, Bitcoin Up Above $3,600

By Shannon Wilson | January 18, 2019
These are the factors that will push Bitcoin price up.

Coin360’s data for January 16 shows cryptocurrency markets have been on the uptick. Most of the top 20 coins (by market capitalization) appreciated over the past 24 hours before – with Bitcoin (BTC) holding steady above $3,600, Cointelegraph reports.

BTC’s peak price point reached for the day was $3,707. Although both BTC and Ripple’s XRP were up, Ethereum’s ETH dominated them by growing 1.45 percent on the day to finish trading around $122 at Cointelegraph’s press time.

As TheCryptoSight reported yesterday, Ethereum’s Constantinople hard fork is facing another postponement from a newly discovered security vulnerability that leads to reentrancy attacks.
