The crypto market has been trading slow in the last few days. Bitcoin on Thursday saw a small profit of 1.02 percent to trade at $28,958 (roughly Rs. 23.6 lakh). The most expensive cryptocurrency managed to inch closer to the mark of $30,000 (roughly Rs. 24.5 lakh) after almost three days of varied price fluctuations. Its current price is similar on both, national as well as international exchanges. In the last 24 hours, the oldest cryptocurrency rose by $608 (roughly Rs. 50,000) price-wise.

Ether's value spiked by 1.75 percent on Thursday. After a minor setback in terms of its value this week, Ether has managed to bounce back to recovery. Its current trading value stands at $1,903 (roughly Rs. 15.5 lakh) as per Gadgets 360's crypto price tracker.

“Bitcoin rallied Wednesday as the narrative of 'not your keys, not your money' is reignited by First Republic Bank's crash, highlighting the beauty of Bitcoin's decentralised P2P cash system. BTC's surge ended its five-day losing streak and continued its upward trend in April and 2021, hitting 10-month highs near $31,000 (roughly Rs. 25.3 lakh). Ethereum also climbed seven percent overall in the past day,” Rajagopal Menon, Vice President, WazirX told Gadgets 360.

Cardano, Polygon, Cosmos, Uniswap, Cronos, and Elrond recorded gains alongside BTC and ETH on Thursday.

Cartesi, Dia, and Status also managed to retain greens on the crypto charts with minor profits.

The global crypto market valuation climbed up the price ladder by 1.33 percent on Thursday. As per CoinMarketCap, the valuation of the crypto sector stood at $1.20 trillion (roughly Rs. 97,99,660 crore) at the time of writing.

Meanwhile, a bunch of mainstream altcoins settled with losses which include Tether, Binance Coin, USDC Coin, Ripple, and Dogecoin.

Solana, Polkadot, Litecoin, Binance USD, and Tron also recorded losses on Wednesday.
