Bitcoin is currently hovering around the USD 24,000 mark as cryptocurrency values continue to plummet.

Shiba Inu price likewise increased by over 4% to USD 0.000016 while Dogecoin was selling more than 8% higher at USD 0.08. XRP, Uniswap, Tron, Litecoin, Polkadot, and Stellar were trading with gains today, while BNB, Tether, Avalanche, Polygon, Apecoin, and Chainlink prices were trading with losses over the last 24 hours.

Several cryptocurrency organisations have slashed staff after a significant pair of tokens collapsed, and other cryptocurrency lenders have frozen customer withdrawals.
