Crypto Price Chart Brims with Greens; Bitcoin, Ether See Gains

The crypto price chart finally showed some recovery on Wednesday, February 2, after days of being riddled with losses. Bitcoin, with a minor value rise of 0.18 percent, opened trading at $41,297 (roughly Rs. 30.85 lakh) on Indian exchange CoinSwitch Kuber. While Bitcoin’s situation looks like it is improving in India, its position still looks shaky on international exchanges. On Binance and CoinMarketCap for instance, Bitcoin prices fell by 0.29 percent and 0.11 percent, respectively. The most valued cryptocurrency is trading at around $38,396 (roughly Rs. 28.7 lakh)

Ether followed Bitcoin to climb up the price ladder after a streak of losses. The altcoin is trading at $2,976 (roughly Rs. 2.2 lakh) with a hike of 1.66 percent as per Gadgets 360’s crypto price tracker.

A day after India imposed a 30 percent tax on incomes generated from the transactions in “virtual digital assets,” the price charts bounced back to reflect greens. As per industry insiders, this taxation has indirectly legitamised the crypto sector in the Indian market.

Tether, Binance Coin, USD Coin, and Cardano also made it to the gainers risk along with Solana and Ripple.

Interestingly, meme-based Dogecoin managed to see some spike after strolling through the year so far, struggling with losses. Presently, DOGE is trading at $0.15 (roughly Rs. 11.5) with a hike of 0.18 percent.

For Dogecoin-rival Shiba Inu however, things have not changed in terms of its price status. The meme-coin is trading for $0.000023 (roughly Rs. 0.001735) with a dip of 0.46 percent.

Terra, Polygon, Chainlink, and Uniswap among a few other altcoins registered minor losses.

In totality, the crypto market showed a notable improvement after weeks of laying low this year.

Meanwhile, India has revealed its plans of rolling out a blockchain-backed digital Rupee, the exact name of which will be declared later.

Despite India levying a 30 percent tax on crypto asset transactions, Thailand is reportedly planning to roll back the 15 percent tax it imposed on crypto profits after heavy opposition especially from the country’s youth.

As of now, the market cap of the crypto market is $1.770 trillion (roughly Rs. 1,32,48,250 crore) as per CoinMarketCap.
