Until yesterday all the cryptocurrency market was bathing in a red blood and everywhere there were red markings. All the top 100 cryptocurrencies were plunging and investors were trying to find out whether to buy dips or not. However, after falling majorly from last two days as the talks of South Korean and Chinese bans shook the market, now the market is recovering again and finally, we can see the green signals.
According to the figures provided by Coinmarketcap, Bitcoin has rebounded again to $11,385 after falling to four-digit figures suggesting a continued volatility in the cryptocurrency space. The price of bitcoin has added some 1500 dollars in less than a daytime rising about 2.14% in a 24-hour period.

NEM had dropped just for some time and was the only currency to gain steadily while all the other currencies were majorly going down.

It is now being speculated by the media that BitConnect could, in fact, be a big scam. On the other hand, even South Korean legislators have not completely dropped down the idea of banning cryptocurrency exchanges. Additionally, China is on a mission of shunning all apps with an exchange like services as it declared restriction on bitcoin mining owing to great energy consumption.
