The cryptocurrency market continues to be under the spell of volatility almost a month after majority crypto assets began slipping down. On Wednesday, July 6, Bitcoin fell by 1.40 percent. As per Indian exchange CoinSwitch Kuber, BTC is currently trading at $20,420 (roughly Rs. 16 lakh). It is notable that despite incurring a small loss, BTC has managed to hold its value above the mark of $20,000 (roughly Rs. 15 lakh). Small losses also hit Bitcoin on international exchanges. As per Binance and CoinMarketCap, BTC values got axed by 1.42 percent to hover around $19.882 (roughly Rs. 15.70 lakh).

In a similar market movement, Ether reflected small dips on national, international price charts. ETH values touched $1,157 (roughly Rs. 91,800) after seeing a dip of 1.35 percent on Gadgets 360's crypto price tracker.

Cardano, Solana, Polkadot, and Tron emerged among loss-making altcoins.

Dogecoin and Shiba Inu, both popular memecoins, saw dips.

Churning most out of the current market sentiment, stablecoins Tether and Binance USD registered minor gains.

Cosmos, DOGEFI, Bitcoin Hedge, and Flex managed to reap small profits.
