After the Sunday decline, the leading digital coin restored positions coming back to the $11,500 area. Investors paid some attention to the statement of the BOE's Chairman but did not focus on it.
In the second half of the day, bitcoin changed hands at $11,524 on the Bitfinex (3% up). Ethereum rose in price to $864.20 on this exchange. Ripple coin hiked to $1.052 on the Poloinex, while Litecoin was quoted at some $213.95.
For reference, BOE's Chairman stated last Friday that cryptocurrency represented a bubble, so investors must be protected. This issue will be tabled during the meeting of G20 finance ministers and chiefs of central banks to take place in Buenos Aires in two weeks.
It is worth mentioning that two India's Ripple and Ethereum exchanges were shut down due to tougher state regulation, news reports read. India's finance minister called cryptocurrencies "economic bubble".
As a result, BTCXIndia and ETHEXIndia had no other choice but to stop activities. The platforms notified their clients about the shutdown and asked them to withdraw money.
"As we heard in the budget speech, the Indian government is discouraging cryptocurrency trading.This has been clear also by government actions in the last year and has put our business under a lot of stress and putting us in a position where we don't feel that we can continue our business in a professional manner any longer," according to the e-mail notice.
