Bitcoin price – live: Crypto sees huge gains as Ethereum and Cardano ‘looking bullish’



Bitcoin is up more than 8 per cent since yesterday, with other leading cryptocurrencies like Ethereum (ether) and Cardano (ada) seeing even bigger price gains.

Every one of the top 10 most valuable cryptocurrencies rose significantly, marking a positive start to a new month for the crypto market. The relative recovery appears to back up the prediction of several prominent analysts that bitcoin and its rivals continue to have a bullish outlook for 2021 despite May’s price crash.

Tesla boss and part-time cryptocurrency enthusiast Elon Musk has once again been tweeting about his favourite meme currency, dogecoin. Replying to a proposition on Twitter on Monday night to DJ at a “Doge Festival”, Mr Musk wrote: “Sounds kinda fun”.

Meanwhile Changpeng Zhao (CZ), the CEO of the crypto exchange Binance, has made a veiled jab at the technology billionaire by claiming that bitcoin’s electricity consumption is not inherently bad, comparing it to electric cars.

We’ll have all the latest news right here.

1622535241Elon Musk toys with Doge Fest DJ role

Elon Musk has replied to a thread on Twitter offering him the role of DJ at a proposed Dogecoin-themed festival.

“Sounds kinda fun,” the Tesla CEO responded.

Other suggestions from Twitter user @itsALLrisky include performances by dogecoin proponent Snoop Dogg and Musk’s partner Grimes.

Billionaire cryptocurrency investor Mark Cuban would apparently pay for it all, while tickets, merch and concessions would all be paid for using dogecoin. The event would also be BYOD (bring your own dogs).

1622526448Bitcoin, ethereum, cardano and dogecoin price bounce back

A new month and a fresh start for the crypto market, with bitcoin, Ethereum (ether), Cardano (ada) and dogecoin all seeing massive gains on Tuesday morning.

All of the top 10 most valuable cryptocurrencies – excluding stable coins like Tether – rose by between 7-20 per cent overnight.

The rebound added $150 billion to the total market cap of all cryptocurrencies combined. The reason for the turn-around is not immediately clear, though several leading cryptocurrency analysts predicted on Monday that the market was showing bullish patterns (see below).

The bounce back means that both bitcoin and ether are now up week-on-week for the first time since mid-May.

1622481792Bitcoin rivals’ record month – visualised

After bitcoin hit an all-time price high in April, this month has been the turn of several of its rivals.

May has been a record-breaking month for Ethereum (ether), Cardano (ada) and dogecoin, with all three experiencing their own all-time highs. These peaks were followed unanimously by record price crashes, followed by a relative period of stability.

As May comes to a close, we’ve crunched the numbers to visualise the percentage gains and losses of bitcoin’s rivals. Remarkably, despite the ups and downs, they’re all pretty much back to where they started.

1622474264Dogecoin founder names Elon Musk ‘Chief Meme Overlord’

Billy Markus, who co-founded dogecoin alongside fellow software engineer Jackson Palmer in 2013, has announced his “resignation as fake CEO”.

The clarification comes after several erroneous reports in the media that called Markus the “CEO of Dogecoin”, despite it being a decentralised cryptocurrency, not a company.

In making the announcement, Markus also gave Elon Musk the role of “Chief Meme Overlord”, after the Tesla, SpaceX, Neuralink and Boring Company boss previously called himself the CEO of Dogecoin in his Twitter bio.

“This role gives the responsibility of tweeting randomly, whenever he feels like it, about whatever he wants,” Markus explained. As you were then.

1622472534Crypto boss swipes at bitcoin critics

The head of one of the world’s biggest crypto exchanges has taken a veiled jab at Elon Musk and other critics of bitcoin’s environmental impact.

“When you use electricity to run cars, it’s environmentally friendly,” Binance boss Changpeng Zhao, known as CZ, tweeted. “When you use electricity to run the most efficient financial networks in the world, it’s an environmental concern.”

Recent data suggests the bitcoin network uses more than 121 terawatt-hours (TWh) annually, which would rank it in the top 30 electricity consumers worldwide if it were a country. You can read more about how bitcoin mining and what it actually means for the environment right here.

1622467038Ethereum and Cardano price patterns bullish?

Both Ethereum (ether) and Cardano (ada) are down more than 30 per cent since the all-time highs they hit earlier this month, however each one now appears to be showing signs of a recovery.

Market analyst and author Glen Goodman notes that the price patterns of each crypto have looked bullish in recent days, while even bitcoin is looking “less bearish” after its tumultuous month.

He warned that bitcoin’s overall influence over the cryptocurrency market could ultimately decide whether the trends for Ethereum and Cardano are able to morph into an upward trajectory.

1622454035Bitcoin car at Indy 500

In more positive news, one of the cars at the Indy 500 this weekend featured a full bitcoin livery.

The car led for around 10 per cent of the 200 lap race, with driver Rinus Veekay starting in third place.

Ed Carpenter Racing (ECR) numbered the car 21, a nod to the 21 million bitcoins that will ever exist, and said the stunt was aimed at spreading adoption of the cryptocurrency.

“The whole movement is amazing,” team owner Ed Carpenter told Autoweek. “I really believe that it is the future of what our financial system is going to look like… There’s so many positives to it that make it so valuable in the long-term.”

1622448505British banks crackdown on bitcoin and crypto exchanges

Several leading banks in the UK have blocked customers from transferring money to cryptocurrency exchanges, preventing them from buying bitcoin, ethereum and other cryptocurrencies.

Barclays was the biggest name to stop users from adding funds to exchanges like Binance, but online banks Monzo and Starling also updated their policy, claiming that it was due to financial crime concerns.

Starling said the measure would only be temporary and would be reversed once better protections are put in place. It is estimated that UK citizens lost around £60 million from crypto-related scams last year, though this is just a fraction of the amount lost through fiat currency fraud.

Monzo said it was “in no way a blanket ban on all crypto trading” and that only certain platforms would be restricted.

1622442913Bitcoin price continues to slide

The price of bitcoin is still showing no signs of recovery, falling by more than 5 per cent overnight.

The broader crypto market saw similar losses, with most major cryptocurrencies down on Monday morning. Only Ripple (XRP) has bucked this trend, rising by more than 5 per cent over the last 24 hours.

Despite the downturn in recent days, both Ethereum (ether) and Cardano (ada) remain way up week-on-week, trading 10 per cent and 15 per cent higher respectively.

Overall, the market remains in relative limbo, with analysts divided over whether this is the beginning of a long bear market, or merely a price correction within a bull run that will head to new all-time highs in 2021.
