Bitcoin Hovers and other cryptocurrencies prices stabilised on Saturday, owing to the possibility of Russia-Ukraine talks. According to CoinDesk, Bitcoin, which had fallen below $34,000 when the war began on Thursday, was flat on Saturday at almost $39,000 per coin, compared to a 5% gain in the XRP digital asset and a 10% surge in Terra’s LUNA token. Ethereum, the second most valuable cryptocurrency, was trading at $2,710 per coin, up 2.66 percent. According to the newspaper, “some investors expect the rebound in crypto prices to continue due to the spike in volatility.”
However, other traders predicted that the price rebound would be short-lived due to geopolitical uncertainty.
According to CoinDesk data, Bitcoin’s trading volume across major exchanges reached its greatest level since the December 5 price fall.
