The key digital coins have slightly rebounded on January 28. Yet, the price generally remains within the previous range.
Today bitcoin changed hands on the Bitfinex at about $10.950.00 after slumping to $9,901 a day before. At present bitcoin practically halved from the mid-December peak at some $20,000.
Following bitcoin, the price for the second major coin Ethereum added 9.94% coming to 1,050 on this exchange ($905.38 yesterday).
Ripple, in its turn, has been priced at $1.3600.
Cryptocurrencies suffered from heavy fluctuations in early 2018, which is mostly explained by fears about tightening of crypto trading by South Korea and other countries.
Specifically, with highly speculative crypto trading, South Korea is considering different ways to control virtual currency trading. The measures under discussion include complete closure either of all exchanges for cryptocurrencies or just illegal ones.
Notably, this week Seoul stated that anonymous accounts for crypto trading would be beyond the pale beginning from January 30.
