XRP moves into the spotlight as Bitcoin stumbles at $ 47,000

Crypto at a glance

Bitcoin’s rise continued yesterday, despite the fact that the largest cryptocurrency by market cap pulled back a little this morning from highs of nearly $ 47,000. It is down 2% in the last 24 hours at the time of writing, and has changed hands for around $ 45,200.

However, the markets generally remain in a mood of optimism, with the Fear & Greed Index again showing that the market is greedy. It appears that the U.S. Senate’s passage of a $ 1 trillion infrastructure bill this week, with measures that commentators said could be detrimental to the cryptocurrency industry, didn’t affect bullish sentiment.

Elsewhere, overall, cryptocurrency markets have swelled back to nearly $ 2 trillion in market cap for the first time since May. Ethereum has also pulled back 2% following its recent strong performance following its London upgrade last week and is currently trading for around $ 3,100. The rest of the market looks stronger, however, with the majority of the other major cryptocurrencies in the green today. Cardano and Dogecoin continue their strong recent performance and are up another 3% since yesterday morning. However, XRP is stellar today, rising 10% to just under a dollar in the past 24 hours.

The big story yesterday was the Poly Network after the biggest attack in decentralized finance (DeFi) history took another dramatic turn. The hacker began returning the funds as promised yesterday, returning at least $ 342 million in cash to the DeFi cross-chain platform Poly Network.

In a question-and-answer session in which he explained his motives, the attacker said: “When I discovered the mistake, I had mixed feelings. Wonder what to do when you’re this lucky. Politely ask the project team so they can fix the problem? Anyone could be the traitor who was given a billion! I can’t trust anyone! The only solution I can think of is to store it in a trusted account while remaining anonymous and secure. I’d rather stay in the dark and save the world. ”

In the Senate


The U.S. government isn’t often keen on democracy or research, especially on #Bitcoin

So it’s amazing to see a senator actually use common sense and urge the US government to “understand the blockchain before regulating it” pic.twitter.com/YftbEHAIRY
