At the time of going to press, Bitcoin costs $ 11,005, a daily loss of 3.83%. While market-leading cryptocurrency surpassed the $ 12,000 mark from August 6 to 8, it has never been able to consolidate at this level. On Saturday, the price dropped by $ 400, triggering the downward spiral that pushed Bitcoin to $ 10,900 even today.

Ether, the second largest cryptocurrency, is currently losing slightly less than Bitcoin. The price recently reached $ 208, a decrease of 1.62%. Nevertheless, investors remain positive. A recent survey on Twitter showed that 54% of respondents expect the ETH to climb to $ 1,000 earlier or earlier.

XRP, the No. 3 cryptocurrency lender, lost 0.87 percent of its daily losses, bringing it to just over $ 0.299 at the time of writing. As Cointelegraph recently reported, the new cryptographic exchange temporarily removed Beaxy XRP from its listing after a stock price manipulation that had temporarily reduced the overall price of the XRP / BTC currency pair by 40%.
In the meantime, on the legal side, XRP and Ripple are exciting. A former investor has therefore improved his lawsuit and now charges Blockchain with the sale of XRP against applicable securities law. The plaintiff refers to the guidelines of the US Securities and Exchange Commission. The case could have far reaching consequences for Ripple and the XRP classification.

Chainlink (LINK) ranks today among the 20 largest cryptographic currencies, while the coin emerges with a gain of 2.36% as the only winner of the day. The price may rise to US $ 2.44 as a result of this increase. LINK had received a noticeable boost a few days ago, after Coinbase Pro included cryptocurrency in its list, although the price was slightly corrected later.
The total market capitalization of the top 100 cryptocurrencies fell to just under $ 293 million at the time of writing, according to Coin360 data.
